National Stationery Show 2012, Part 5

Some stationers decide to combine efforts and share booth space at the National Stationery Show, either by working with a rep who oversees the whole booth or by simply dividing the booth square footage amongst the participating stationers.  This year there were three such booths, so I thought I’d end the week with these three booths since there’s a LOT of stationery eye candy in each one!  First up, three Seattle-based stationers sharing a booth – Ilee Paper Goods, Orange Twist, and Tutta Lou.

I always have a great time visiting the Ladies of Letterpress booth at the Stationery Show.  I love that the organization provides an opportunity for their members to test the wholesale waters – and it’s so fun to see members go on to exhibit in their own booths year after year.  This year there were eleven talented letterpress stationers exhibiting in the booth!

Meg from Moglea also made a big splash at this year’s show with her collection of letterpress cards and stationery sets.  I also loved her illustrated quarterly wall calendar!
