National Stationery Show 2013, Part 1

It’s finally here! The 2013 National Stationery Show kicked off yesterday, and I’m so excited for a week full of wonderful stationery! I’ve only had a chance to walk a few aisles so far, but today I’m thrilled to kick off my NSS recaps with five of my favorite booths (so far) from this year’s show! First up, one of the biggest debuts of the year – 9th Letter Press! These ladies went all out with a huge booth filled with awesome letterpress stationery, including gift wrap and foil printed garlands, foil art prints, notebooks and notepads, stickers and fill-in party invitations, and of course tons of greeting cards and holiday cards!

I’ve been following the ladies of Tabletop Made for a loooong time, and it was wonderful to finally meet them in person at their adorable booth! So many cute things, from letterpress printed greeting cards and postcards to gift tags to art prints. I’m particularly loving the sparkly gold foil in the Far Out print below!

I was thrilled to stumble upon this booth from Minneapolis-based new exhibitor Benchpressed. I’m loving the hand lettering, illustrations, and bright colors in the sweet and snarky greeting cards and art prints – and of course I’m a fan of the monthly craft cocktail calendar!

The Rocket Ink booth was one of my favorite debuts last year, and this year Katie’s booth was full of beautiful city and state prints, a gorgeous gem-themed 2014 wall calendar, and lots of illustrated and hand lettered greeting cards, love cards, and holiday cards. And how cute is that fringe trim around the booth??

I’m completely overjoyed that Yellow Owl Workshop was back in their very own booth for this year’s show – and what a booth! Christine hand painted the walls in the most beautiful abstract pattern, which was the perfect backdrop for her colorful greeting cards, stamp kits, and necklaces. They also had their brand new carve-a-stamp kits on display and I’m beyond obsessed. So many possibilities!
