The booth recaps from the National Stationery Show may be over, but I have one final NSS post to share with you! Every year for the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of co-hosting a little stationery meetup with Erika from Delphine one evening during the show. This year, we invited the stationery and design industry’s finest to come hang out for a few hours outside of the Javits Center – and an awesome turnout of exhibitors, retailers, and fellow stationery enthusiasts showed up to get their paper party on!
This year’s meetup took place at a fun little venue just a few blocks north of the Javits Center called Little Town NYC on Restaurant Row – we loved the rustic vibe and brick interiors! Our fabulous and talented friends Janice from Bellwether Events and Cyd from The Sweetest Occasion helped us pull all of the party details together. We were thrilled to work with some really amazing sponsors who made the party possible, including Crane & Co., Stationery HQ, Tradeshow Bootcamp, Ladies of Letterpress, and Mohawk/Felt + Wire.
Of course, a paper party wouldn’t be complete without a fabulous goodie bag! This year’s goodie bag was pretty hefty and full of amazing paper from Crane & Co., Dingbat Press, Linnea’s Lights, Fig. 2 Design Studio, Russell + Hazel, Figs + Ginger, Tattly, Kelp Designs, Kate & Birdie, Cartolina, Paper + Cup, Crow & Canary, Czar Press, Knock Knock, Legion Paper, and Anthology Magazine.
Oh, and I can’t forget the invitations themselves! Erika created the gorgeous design and the invitations were printed in mint green and gold foil by Stationery HQ. The wonderful Michele from Meant to Be Calligraphy provided her beautiful hand lettering (in her Edwards style) for the invitations that we mailed out a bit further in advance.
We had so much fun at this year’s meetup!
Once again, a huge thanks and much love to our amazing sponsors: Crane & Co., Stationery HQ, Mohawk/Felt + Wire, Tradeshow Bootcamp, and Ladies of Letterpress, not to mention Little Town NYC for having us – and a million thanks to Janice and Cyd for all their help. I can’t wait for next year!
There was no way I could fit all of the photos from this year’s meetup into a single post, but you can find the full gallery from the party right here!
