Thomas Russell -- Casual Living, February 21, 2013
NORTH VENICE, Fla. - Insulated drinkware manufacturer Tervis announced a new partnership with artist Anne Taintor, known for her designs that combine vintage style with contemporary humor. Often found on totes and stationary, six of Taintor's designs will now be featured on Tervis drinkware.
Anne Taintor's designs juxtapose wry text against images of idealized women from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
"The partnership between Anne Taintor and Tervis is a natural fit," said Rich Kaplan, Tervis president of sales and marketing, chief brand officer. "Like Anne's style, at the core of the Tervis brand is fun. Her tongue-in-cheek sense of humor will resonate well with Tervis fans."
Taintor juxtaposes wry text against images of idealized women from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Known for making "smart people smile," Taintor began selling her quirky designs in 1985. The company has grown significantly since then, with a loyal following of wit-loving fans.
Six different designs are available in both 16-ounce and 24-ounce sizes, ranging in price from $15-$23. Each comes with a travel lid. The designs are available at Tervis.com, Tervis company stores and 5,000 retail partners including Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Tervis drinkware keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold while reducing condensation. Made in America since 1946, Tervis products are virtually unbreakable, and safe in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer.
