As I mentioned last week, there were a LOT of new exhibitors at this year’s National Stationery Show, and they brought a lot of really awesome paper along with them. I profiled a few first-time exhibitors last week, but I thought I’d do the same thing today! First up, the new-to-me Grey Cardigan, with an awesome and well-curated booth full of graphic art prints, gift wrap sheets, and stationery.
The Farewell Paperie booth was an explosion of color and lots of really beautiful (and funny!) stationery. Designers Lisa and Jen started out in advertising and their background shines through in their fantastic copywriting. So much pretty paper!
Garrett and Jessica from Wednesday might have been one of the most enthusiastic new exhibitors at the show – they were still smiling even on the last day when everyone else is completely exhausted and in quasi-zombie mode! I loved all of the fun greeting cards and wedding invitation designs in their booth.
I’ve known Suann from Simplesong Design for years, but this was her first exhibitor appearance at the National Stationery Show! Suann presented a collection that was perfectly curated and representative of her clean, minimalist design style.
Joel and Ashley from This Paper Ship had one of the sweetest booths at the show, with a fun nautical theme that served as both a nod to their business name and helped display their collection of whimsical prints and cards.
Allison from Lettuce Press made her trade show debut with a wonderfully styled booth and beautifully curated collection of letterpress greeting cards and stationery.
I loved the old-timey and masculine style from The Victory Special Press – including a wood type letterpress printed calendar and some really fun cocktail recipe note cards!
I love the way Brannon from Happy Cactus incorporated the hand drawn patterns from her stationery into her booth design with a hand drawn booth border – such an adorably whimsical touch that helped draw the focus directly to her beautiful cards.
I’ll be back with more from the National Stationery Show soon!
