About

Who is Wink? We are two great friends, Jessica & Aimee. We met in a sculpture class in college and became instant friends. We both studied textiles and graphic design. We probably knew then that someday we would work together, doing something that would mesh our love for patterns, textures, paper, and beautiful design.

Our company truly started in the late 1990’s when planning our own weddings. Designing our own invitations and favors, we could express our design sensibilities and create a unique “look” for our weddings. Friends and acquaintances began hiring us for their weddings, bridal showers, and later baby showers and parties. After working for some years individually, demand grew, and we finally decided to become a partnership.

Our company truly started in the late 1990’s when planning our own weddings. Designing our own invitations and favors, we could express our design sensibilities and create a unique “look” for our weddings. Friends and acquaintances began hiring us for their weddings, bridal showers, and later baby showers and parties. After working for some years individually, demand grew, and we finally decided to become a partnership.

When searching for a name that represented the partnership, we wondered what could describe our friendship, our love of art, and our passion for fine stationery? It was a lot to ask for in a name. We remembered a line from the song “Wink and a Smile” by Harry Connick Jr... “we go together...like a wink and a smile.” That was it, that fit us. We liked how it sounded, we liked the pairing up it represented, and the twinkle of inspiration it gave us. Wink was born.

Who’s the “wink” and who’s the “smile”? Well, like the proverbial question...which came first, the chicken or the egg, we’ll never know. But we do know, you can’t have one without the other, and that’s how we came together to create a company that sets the mood for our friendship, our designs, and your joyous events.

Our mission at Wink is to create beautiful products that accent and enhance the occasions people celebrate. We spend a long time crafting our designs and adjusting details to make them unique, charming, sometimes clever, but always beautiful. When the envelope is opened, or a guest receives their favor, we want to hear the “oooohhhh” and know that this isn’t an object that just gets tossed, but a keepsake to be admired and kept as a remembrance for years to come.
