Exquisitely Practical Tools for Your Life and Your Desk.

Design is at the root of everything we do. To say it’s an obsession would not be overstating things. It has transformed our habits and our habitats. Wms & Co. offers everyday objects elevated by design and influenced by history. These are exquisitely practical tools to enhance daily life. Use them often and they will acquire the rich patina of service. We think they provide an intimate, personalized and deliciously off-line experience that can be hard to come by these days. Our desk accessories represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful. In the words of Paul Rand, the great American graphic designer, “Good design adds value of some kind, gives meaning and, not incidentally, can be sheer pleasure to behold.” We second that emotion. 3

Rectangular Metal Clip

Hold it together. This heavyweight metal clip has a powerful clamping mechanism. Use it to display items, to hold papers together or even to keep bags closed. Available in Solid Copper, Solid Bronze or Silver-plate. Packaged in a signature drawstring pouch. Size: 2� x 4 3/4�. 5


Folded Bookmarks

More suited to marking your place in a hardbound copy of Infinite Jest or the OED than slipping into a paperback. Consider placing one of these weighty bands of folded metal on either side of a large tome to hold it open for display. Intended for bibliophiles and serious readers. Available in Solid Copper, Solid Bronze or Silver-plate with a Folded Angle or a Straight Fold. Like everything at Wms & Co, the packaging is not incidental. They come affixed to a page from a book and are then placed in a clear plastic sleeve. Folded Angle: 4 3/4� tall, Straight Fold: 6 1/4� tall. 6


7


Corner Page Marker

Slip this over the corner of the book you are reading to mark your spot. It will catch your eye as you hurry past, a subtly gleaming reminder of the pleasures that await. We commissioned this exquisite piece from an artisan in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, where beauty is a way of life. Available in Solid Copper, Solid Bronze or Sterling Silver. Size 2� x 2�. Sterling silver packaged in our signature black gift box, Bronze and Copper affixed to a book page in a clear sleeve. 8

Octagonal Personalized Hand Stamp

This elegant form is cast in bronze from a 19th-century paperweight, and transformed into the base for a personalized rubber stamp. The warmth and heft of the material endows this everyday object with an unanticipated lyricism and tactility. The slight asymmetry of the octagonal base indicates that it was most likely one of a kind. Enclosed is a card with a unique code and instructions to visit our online personalization portal to create a custom rubber imprint. The finished rubber imprint is mailed via USPS directly and included in the purchase price. Size 2�. Hand cast in Bronze and Blackened Bronze, packaged in our signature black gift box. 10


Letter Opener

The design that inspired this piece was meticulously crafted in Kyoto of lightweight bamboo. We were quite taken with its pleasing line and the way it sits in the hand. So we had it copied in ebony wood and then, as a tribute, we had it cast in bronze and blackened bronze. We covet them all, and so might you. Hand crafted in Jaipur. Size 6.25�. Bronze and Blackened Bronze packaged in our signature black gift box, Ebony in a clear sleeve. 11


12


Color Edge Memo Pads

Our extremely memorable memo pads are edged in a variety of metallics and one solid color. They come in three modular sizes that efficiently stack together to create different compositions. Available in shiny copper foil edge, shiny silver foil edge, brushed gold foil edge and matte blush nude edge. The top edge has a black glue spine. Individually shrinkwrapped. Small: 110mm X 110mm, Medium Long: 110mm x 220mm, Large Desktop: 220mm x 330mm 13


14


Metallic Foil Tape

This glamorous tape has the gleam and malleability of foil yet adheres like tape. Made of virtually pure copper or aluminum, it has a peel-off paper backing and comes in 25-meter rolls that fit a standard desk dispenser. To mention that it’s waterproof and cold- and heat-resistant may seem like gilding the lily, but it’s true. 15mm wide, 25 meters long, 3� core. 15


Metallic Edged Cards

Edged in a variety of metallic colors, our hefty gray chipboard cards combine utilitarian understatement with Old World elegance. They are available with metallic copper edge, metallic silver edge or metallic gold edge. For those who prefer a subtle yet high-impact statement, we offer double-thick gray European chipboard with no edge painting whatsoever. The notecards fit standard A7 envelopes, which are sold separately. Business cards: 2” x 3.5”, Notecards: 5” x 7” Available in Gray Kraft. 16


17


Mini Notebooks with Pale Copper Metallic Edge

Perfectly sized, these notebooks are ideal for slipping into a purse or large pocket when you need to jot something down. Their design is understated but polished enough to pull out in meetings. Features includes black uncoated paper cover, unprinted white pages and perforated spine for easy removal of pages. Comes as a set of two tied with black cord. Size 4� x 6�. 18


Thumbstamp and Mini Inkpad Set

Our diminutive industrial thumbstamps make quite an impact. Choose from an array of witty phrases that range from mildly irreverent to eyebrow-raising. Each one comes packaged in a drawstring cotton pouch with a mini slide-top tin ink pad and a bottle of black ink. Wms & Co will also create custom imprint sets, so you can sell the hell out of your local college cheer, favorite pop culture expression or personal motto. Available in over 25 imprint designs. Custom imprints available, minimums apply. Stamper size 1.5� x .75�. Packaged in a signature drawstring pouch. 19

Philosophical Quote Hand Stamps

Our Hand Stamps come fully loaded with the kind of aphorisms that linger in the mind.

Enclosed is a card with a unique code and instructions to visit our online personalization portal to create a custom rubber imprint, using one of our 60+ templates or uploading art. The finished proprietary cling rubber imprint is mailed via USPS directly and included in the purchase price. Available in Red Gloss painted, Black Gloss painted and unfinished solid Ash.

Self-Inking Stamper with Personalized Imprint

Our signature Self-Inking Stamper features a retractable stamping mechanism that accommodates interchangeable rubber imprint plates so it can be used for multiple messages. A hidden ink pad means there is no need for a separate stamp pad. All five sizes feel substantial in the hand, but the largest is downright monolithic. The elegant handles, derived from the design of a 19th century paperweight, are crafted in solid hardwood and finished with our distinctive W button. Like everything at Wms & Co., the packaging is not incidental. Stampers arrive wrapped in black tissue paper in a refined heavy-duty cardboard box that references vintage factory packaging. Enclosed is a card with a unique code and instructions to visit our online personalization portal to create a custom rubber imprint, using one of our 60+ templates or uploading art. The finished proprietary cling rubber imprint is mailed via USPS directly and included in the purchase price. Available in 3 metal finishes: Black powder coated, classic Nickel-plated, and Copper-plated. 25
