National Stationery Show 2012, Part 8

We’re moving right along with more awesome booths from the 2012 National Stationery Show!  After focusing on some of the newest exhibitors, let’s turn our attention to some of the veterans delivering awesome stationery year after year.  First up, Kathryn from Blackbird Letterpress and her growing menagerie of die cut animal cards.  Some of the animals even make an appearance on her new calendar designs!

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!

I love the way the ladies of Banquet Atelier + Workshop mix pattern and color throughout their collection, from art prints to greeting cards to gift wrap.  I was particularly smitten with the large-scale guest book and temporary tattoos.  So fun!
