We keep talking about how much we love Girl Bosses and Girl Power so we thought it was time to prove it to you! We feel privileged to have found her because they just started their business in 2016 so it feels a little like unearthing a rare gemstone to the world! Although I think the secret is starting to get out all over Columbus.
Ink & Co., made in Ohio is owned by Courtney and her Husband, Ryan Hart. They proudly offer unique images with a strong focus on Ohio themed images pressed onto goods made of natural materials. So Ryan and Courtney are a working duo but you know what they say, behind every great man is an even greater woman.
They got the idea for their business walking through a West Elm store because who doesn’t have their best ideas inside lush West Elm stores?! They love Ohio because like so many of us it is their home. Where they were born and raised, where they were married and where they are currently raising their tribe.
Courtney and I had our first official meeting in a Hobby Lobby parking lot. We fancy. To put it politely I rolled up looking like shit. Yoga pants, no shower, no makeup, really appropriate for meeting someone for the first time related to business. As soon as I met Courtney I immediately regretted my attire because she is cute to boot. I guess it makes sense one would have to have fabulous taste to create such beautiful pieces and that certainly translated in person. And of course she could not have been sweeter!
Let us just say this we are HONORED that Courtney reached out to us and wanted to link up and work together. We honestly think you are going to be seeing a lot more of these two all over Ohio!
Which is why we have conveniently provided you all of the links to find Ink & Co.
GOOOOOOOOOOOO DAYTON FLYERS!
I’m looking at you McGreevy, Cox, Pacetta, McBride and Frye Families! (And the millions more there are of you Flyers I forgot.) Get you some of this Dayton goodness!
Clearly the pieces are outstanding! But even before you get to the actual goodies her presentation from start to finish is stunning. Courtney spared no expense when it came to curb appeal.
The twine. It is perfection. It adds an extra element of sophistication along with the tags, both of which are so cute I can’t bear to get rid of them! Remember when I said Courtney clearly had impeccable taste, well it’s sitting on my desk in the form of twine and Ink & Co. tags.
I promise I’m not a hoarder.
Although I am hoarding both of these Ink & Co. pieces. One of which is hung and the other I am waiting to incorporate into a gallery wall in my living room. Or in Basic Columbus’s office whichever comes first.
I bet on the office happening before my gallery wall.
Upcoming events where you can find Ink & Co.
June 3rd – Art on 5th in Downtown Dayton
(Unfortunately Huck will not be in attendance. His Diva demands can’t be met.)
Then there are the tea towels.
These Tea Towels. Yes. Unreal. Could they be cuter, No. We are obsessed.
Everyone needs new towels that are adorable and original and these make the perfect gift to bestow upon that hostess with the mostest, that we all know.
This beauty is the one already hanging in my house and every time I look at it, it just makes me happy.
If Ohio isn’t necessarily your motto Ink & Co. offers a wider variety of cool prints that would fit any home or space. For example the arrows and the male/female print. Two of my absolute favorites! But let’s get real there really is nothing of theirs we don’t l.o.v.e. Graduation gifts, birthdays, anniversaries, I can think of a millions reasons I will be gifting Ink & Co. to those around me.
We literally DIED over this statement piece! It. Is. Divine.
Ink & Co. will have ONLY TWO of these available at the June 5th event at Polaris.
So don’t be tardy for the party!
