Pretty Paper in the Office: Staplers

As paperless as the world has become, I always have stacks of papers to sort through.  And you’ll always find a means of keeping them tidy on my desk. Folders, paper clips, and the all mighty stapler.  (Which is also great for a little stress relief, might I add.)  I know I’m not the only one who still has a trusty stapler by their side, so I’ve put together a round up of all shapes and sizes for keeping it together!  – Julie

I’ve already featured more than 70 booths from the 2012 National Stationery Show, but today our coverage starts to wind down with a few final booths from this year’s show.  I look forward to the show all year long, so it’s hard to believe that the show has already been over for a week!  First up today, the fabulous screen printed cards from Gold Teeth Brooklyn.  I love all the rich color and subtle texture from screen printing, particularly when mixed with such playful designs!

I was so happy to stumble upon Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress at last year’s show – they have the sweetest collection of hand lettered note cards in collaboration with lettering artist Karolin Schnoor.  This year I loved the letterpress recipe cards and gold foil printed notebooks and card designs.

I’m a huge fan of Katharine Watson‘s Indian-inspired block printed designs.  This year, Katharine’s booth was packed full of gorgeous paper and textiles, from tea towels to greeting cards to coasters.

I love the illustrated folk art stationery from the gentlemen of Urubbu.  This year’s collection included some fun farm animal designs (I particularly enjoyed the chickens!) and some moody ravens.  They also added a bunch of wonderful wood sculptures sourced from artisans in Brazil!

As promised, I’ve got a bit more from the National Stationery Show to share with you today!  Some of my favorite booths are those with a sense of humor, from the sweetly funny to the totally snarky.  So today I thought I’d focus in on a few of my favorite booths that combine fun and humor with gorgeous stationery design.  First up, Maginating with some of the most adorable designs you could possibly imagine and several of my all-time favorite cards!

Nicole from The Nic Studio has a beautiful collection of illustrated cards that always seems to combine whimsy with a sense of fun and humor.  This year, I was completely blown away by Nicole’s amazing new series of large full-color art prints called “Animals Everywhere” – inspired by her 3-year old daughter’s imagination.  Gorgeous!

Amber from Flywheel Press always has something up her sleeve for the Stationery Show – from fun scavenger hunts to awesome letterpress greeting cards and wedding invitations.  This year I was particularly smitten with Amber’s new collection of cards inspired by classic movie moments (so fantastic!) and gorgeous split fountain designs.

The ladies of Sugarcube Press are as sweet as their namesake, and I always love their vintage-inspired designs.  This year’s booth was full of fun greeting cards, their popular letterpress coaster calendar, and new letterpress bunting for parties.

It’s so fun to see designers doing something a bit different at the Stationery Show, and I can always count on Figs + Ginger to show up with something new and innovative.  I already love their collection of laser-engraved wood banners and cake toppers, and the new wood guest books are equally amazing!
