National Stationery Show 2011 – Part 7

Happy Friday everyone!  We’re about halfway through the coverage from this year’s National Stationery Show, and after looking back through all of the photos from the show I can’t believe what we managed to pack into just a few short days.  So much beautiful stationery!  First up today, a new-to-me exhibitor from the Pacific Northwest, Bison Bookbinding and Letterpress.  I’m absolutely smitten with Bison’s collection of hand lettered note cards and brightly colored geometric letterpress notebooks.

After somehow missing them last year, I was absolutely determined to visit the Gold Teeth Brooklyn booth this time around.  This simple-yet-vibrant collection of screen printed note cards and art prints is incredibly refreshing, and was accompanied by a sweet and simple booth design that really let the cards shine.

Another new exhibitor that made a big impression – Lucky Bird, who came to New York all the way over from the United Kingdom.  Lucky Bird’s collection includes some seriously adorable foil blocked illustrated note cards and gift tags.

I’m seriously loving all the new patterns and colorways in the SusyJack* collection this year.  The blue and yellow ikat patterns?  Love it!  And the flower pattern for the 2012 calendars is so lovely…

It was such a pleasure to finally meet Rebekah from Wild Ink Press after admiring her work from afar for so long!  Rebecca had one of the prettiest booth displays at the show, with gold logo signs on top of gray chalkboard paint along with a hand drawn chalk border and illustrations – a perfect complement to her beautiful letterpress cards.

I’m back with more goodies from the 2011 National Stationery Show!  Are you all enjoying the recaps from this year’s show as much as I’m enjoying putting them together?  I hope so, because there’s still a lot more to come!  Toronto-based Pantry Press made a return to the Stationery Show after a 7-year absence, and I was thrilled to see their beautiful letterpress work up close.

Hammerpress is another perennial show favorite; I always love the layered colors and delicate letterpress texture in their card and calendar designs.  I’m super excited to see the tear-away wall calendars making a return this year along with lots of other new designs!

Artist Leah Duncan wasn’t technically at the Stationery Show – but I couldn’t resist including her in these round ups.  Leah exhibited at an art licensing show called Surtex, where she displayed her illustrated patterns and collaborative projects.

For those of you with a slightly more sarcastic sense of humor, you’ll adore the cards from Walk Up Press.  I’m also loving the customizable letterpress prints and less snarky love note cards.

As promised, I’m back with more from this year’s National Stationery Show, with beautiful images from photographer Brian Tropiano.  I’ve been running around the show trying to catch up with old favorites and check out the work of new exhibitors, so the last couple days have just flown by!  First up, a first time exhibitor that is a familiar face around here – Dingbat Press!  Adrienne from Dingbat Press did an amazing job with her booth; each wall is covered with silver leaf!  I’m loving Adrienne’s letterpress initial note cards and funny chess greeting cards.

The Ladies of Letterpress booth is a bit of a doozy – with TEN designer/printers exhibiting in a shared booth.  It’s a lot to take in all at once, but there’s so much amazing work from a group of seriously talented stationers.  This year participating printers included Thomas Printers, Anemone Letterpress, Cleanwash Letterpress, Heartfish Press, Ink Petals, Wildhorse Press, Dandy Lion Press, Studio SloMo, Lulabelle, and Paper Lovely.

National Stationery Show 2011 – Part 3

It’s hard to believe that today is the final day of the Stationery Show in New York – but don’t worry, I have so much more to share with you from this year’s show!  Yesterday I was lucky enough to have photographer Brian Tropiano join me to help out on photo duty at the show, which made me a very happy blogger!  First up today, Figs and Ginger, who put together one of my favorite booth displays for this year’s show, hands down.  You saw a sneak peek of the new wood collection at the last Gift Fair, but the full collection of wedding and party goods made its big debut at the Stationery Show with amazing silhouette cake toppers, banners, wood signs, and dress hangers for wedding party members.  Just stunning!

Right across the aisle, Laurel Denise was exhibiting at the show with her totally awesome calendar/planner.  You’ll get a sneak peek at the 2012 version below, which is totally adorable with some fun patterns and multiple cover color options.  See that large scale version that Laurel made just for her booth display?  I’m trying to convince her to figure out how to actually make that for people to use in their own offices.  How awesome would that be?  I know I could use one!

After making her big debut at last year’s show, Anna from Rifle Paper Co. was back this year with even more gorgeous stationery – including gold foil note cards, multiple calendars, note pads, coasters, and prints.  So much pretty!

I always love the Linda & Harriett booth at the Stationery Show, and this year was no exception.  This year Liz is exhibiting two calendar formats, including a hanging letterpress calendar and a totally gorgeous and larger scale watercolor calendar, along with new versions of a Linda + Harriett classic – note pads!
