Nothing like a little sweetness to brighten up your week and what is sweeter than cotton candy? Or how about Cotton Candy Printers! Yeni visits us today to tell us about her printing company based out of New York specializing in printing works of art on pin back buttons, labels and mirrors for businesses and lovers of cuteness worldwide. Yeni is a new mama with a new business-in fact there is all sorts of newness in her life! A lovely logo by This Paper Ship for Aeolidia + moving from Etsy to a sparkly new website are setting Cotton Candy Printers up for an amazing year-let’s learn a bit more about her and how you can win a little sweetness for your very own self.
Hi Yeni! Thank you for your support of OMHG & for visiting us today-please tell us a bit about yourself and Cotton Candy Printers!
I’m a stay-at-home wife and mother to an amazingly happy and beautiful 6 month old baby girl. Somewhere in the middle of my pregnancy, I got bored and decided to start a business. Combining my love for graphic design and printed works, I thought why not start a printing-related business to kill time. I’ve decided to name it Cotton Candy Printers because of my insatiable appetite for sweets, plus cotton candy just sounds so yummy!
We love hearing how & where makers make, can you show or tell us about your workspace?
The magic happens in my small apartment in Manhattan. While I try to keep my desk neat at all times (I’m a bit of a neat freak), it usually ends up messy by the end of the day. I also have a bunch of art magazines and catalog on the table in case I need some emergency inspirations.
What are you planning for Cotton Candy Printers in the future? Any exciting projects or products in the works?
I’m hoping that I can expand our current line of buttons, pocket mirrors and stickers to include stationery like notebooks in the future. I’ve been working with my good friend, Linda Tanasal, for a while now to create more artwork. She does graphic design on a freelance basis and is based in Jakarta, Indonesia.
