Pink + Hearts | FASHION FRIDAY

by Kelli France | Editor-in-Chief

You know I love pink because it’s all over my branding and Chic Critique’s branding so I couldn’t resist me some pink pants from Target! Pink is such a feminine color so it seemed obvious to pair it with a heart sweater. I love that this outfit is feminine but a little edgy with those rocker chic boots. TGIF!

TOP TRENDS | VOGUE VENDORS

Today our Top Trend comes from Vogue Vendor Bumblejax!
Who is Bumblejax? Bumblejax specializes in transforming digital photos into gallery quality wall art using unique materials such as bamboo, acrylic and raw aluminum. Each piece is carefully hand-crafted in Seattle.

What makes Bumblejax unique? The materials we use to create a high quality photo mount makes our products unique. Photographers we have worked with are able to really stand out and create a dialogue with potential customers at photo shows and galleries. They want to know how it was made and what the material is. In an extremely competitive market such as photography, standing out is critical. On the service side, I feel we set the standard for customer service in an industry where it is often an afterthought. It’s been a big focus for us from Day 1 and our customers appreciate it.

How did Bumblejax come about? As for the name it’s something that just came to mind one day. There was really no thought into it! The idea for Bumblejax came about after a trip to Thailand and trying to come up with ways to display the photos that really brought them to life in a unique way.

What is your most popular product? Our most popular product by far is the acrylic face mount. The acrylic has unique properties over glass in that it refracts light within the acrylic, illuminating the image. It really enhances the image and creates the wow factor many customers are looking for. Most of the companies you see offering the acrylic product now are printing directly to the acrylic because it doesn’t require highly skilled labor and the success rate is much higher. The price point is lower, but the full color gamut and vibrancy isn’t there. We believe photos were meant to be printed on high quality paper. The old school acrylic face mounting process is a dying art and there are just a handful of companies in the US who offer it.
