Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all had a nice and relaxing long weekend! Today I’m ready to jump back into my National Stationery Show coverage with two more recaps full of some seriously gorgeous booths. First up, yet another new exhibitor at the show with lots of screen printed awesomeness: sister companies The Paper Cub Co. and Sass and Peril!
I love the clean and modern style of the greeting cards from The Paper Cub Co.
Sass & Peril is more kid- and home-focused, with animal prints and posters, onesies, and even tea towels!
I’ve been a big fan of Brainstorm ever since discovering them at a local craft fair a few years ago – and I was really looking forward to their debut booth at the Stationery Show! I love the warm and cozy vibe they created (complete with a faux fireplace), and of course I love all their beautiful art prints!
This atlas series is one of my all time favorites!
Is it weird if I actually want to move into a booth? Rebekah from Wild Ink Press created the most warm and cozy booth to showcase her beautiful cards – she even installed crown moulding at the top! The walls were lined with all the new collections that Rebekah debuted at the show, from a brand new letterpress calendar to garden-inspired greeting cards to a funny quotations series!
I love the new Otomi and Aztec patterns in Rebekah’s textile-inspired collection!
The Letter C Design booth was a happy rainbow of stationery, with boxed note sets, colorful travel journals, and cute little place cards – all with cute white foil printed motifs. I also love love love the kraft paper stickers, including gift tag stickers!
After a strong debut last year, Pei Design has become one of my highlights at the show. This year’s collection was largely designed around a Parisian-inspired theme, with art prints, a calendar, and several new illustrated greeting cards. Those gold foil pattern note cards and new gift wrap sheets? Gorgeous!
The ladies of One Canoe Two went BIG this year, from the actual booth size (too big to get a single frame shot!) to a bunch of fabulous new products to an absolutely gorgeous new oversize calendar! So so good.
These perpetual calendars come in a gorgeous heirloom wood berry box – and can even be used as a daily journal that you can revisit every year!
It’s so fun to see stationers branch out and experiment with new products, and these days I’m particularly excited by the new objects from The Great Lakes Goods. You’ve probably already seen their color-dipped wood feathers and arrows, screen printed gift wrap, and ribbons, but this year’s booth also included color block wood candle holders and the cutest balloons with hand lettered messages – all along with their awesome screen printed greeting cards.
Of course, the National Stationery Show wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Rifle Paper Co. booth! This time around the booth was full of beautiful new art prints, a stunning new garden-inspired calendar, new gift wrap patterns, new greeting card designs – and of course their fabulous iphone cases!
I’ll be back in just a bit with more from the 2013 National Stationery Show!
