NSS 2017: Let’s Get Organized

Last week I did a little round up of my favorite pencil pouches – including a couple that I found in person at this year’s National Stationery Show – in honor of back-to-school season. There’s always something about the start of a new school year that inspires us to get organized, don’t you think? So it just felt right that my next NSS 2017 round up focus on some of the organizational goodies at this year’s show. Now, I’m not talking about calendars and yearly planners (I’ll be covering those in separate round up posts soon), but instead on some of the other stationery that we use to keep ourselves organized: file folders, notebooks, notepads, and specialty planners. These are always popular categories at the show – and for good reason! I mean, just look at these dressage unicorns on this notebook from Baltic Club:

So let’s kick things off with the notebook category! Iron Curtain Press has been killing it in this category for a while, with their beautiful, minimalist notebooks in a variety of sizes and candy coated colors. They just added a small reporter-size notebook, which was a very popular size at this year’s show, along with a larger task pad notebook. I’m also loving the hand painted reporter-size notebooks from Moglea, and the gold foil notebooks from Wild Ink Press and Smitten on Paper.

Yay for beautiful file folders! I’m loving these designs from Good Juju Ink, Graphique de France, and Rifle Paper Co.:

Moving on to the notepad category, we’ve got a beautiful large version from Fox & Fallow that comes with it’s own clipboard and pencil, and fun illustrated desktop notepads from Mr. Boddington’s Studio and Our Heiday. Also, I somehow neglected to get a photo of these at the show, but these hologram foil-edged notepads from Parrott Design Studio are just beyond amazing!

I’m a BIG fan of the weekly planner. As a visual person, I love being able to see a week’s worth of activities all together – and even better if I can see two weeks side by side! We’ve got shiny gold foil from Smitten on Paper, painterly illustrations from Our Heiday, and minimalism from Iron Curtain Press.

I wish I could show you every page of this cocktail recipe binder from Moglea! It comes in gray and white cover options, with copper foil interior tabs organized by season:

This packing planner from Lionheart Prints is genius! I currently use the Notes app on my phone to plan everything I need to pack for a family trip, so this planner notepad would be a BIG improvement.

I love, love, love the minimalist design of this meal planner from Ramona & Ruth. And it’s the perfect size to drop into your purse or a tote bag and bring it with you to the grocery store!
