Who is the person behind Cosmic Coupe?
Glad you asked!
I'm Katie: I work as a data strategist at a consulting firm by day, and I have a deep love for art, sci-fi, design, and all things bizarre and offbeat.
Cosmic Coupe is a passion project and a hobby that combines several of my niche insterests: indie zines, space, art deco, history, illustration, extravagant beverages, branding, storytelling, and print (just to name a few). I have a degree in Advertising & Communications from BU, and I started this interstellar journey entirely during the pandemic as a way to design a dreamy and indulgent celestial escape after cancelling all of my travel plans.
My mission here is twofold:
a) To create a memorable DIY experience that is accessible to people at home & and inclusive of friends and family who may be sober or just taking a break from drinking.
b) To empower everyone to think about creativity and supporting freelancers in a unique way - there is so much more to the art world than physical galleries and eye-popping price tags. If there's a concept you wish your favorite instagrammer would tackle, ask about commission rates and support them directly. Art prints are awesome, but don't forget that zines with richly colored full-page spreads are tiny rotating galleries in your home.
Do you plan to offer more products?
Yes! In addition to zines, prints, and stickers, I plan to offer soft enamel pins, magnets, recipe coasters, tote bags, and t-shirts. Cosmic Coupe is entirely run by one person who also has a day job, so new products will be introduced periodically. Feel free to suggest new product options or configurations.
Do you offer free shipping?
Shipping is free for orders over $50! And if you'd like to just order a sticker pack, I can ship those for cheaper than the flat rate shipping since it's okay if they bend a little bit in the mail. Send me a note and I'll create a custom code for you.
