Seasonal Stationery: Graduation Cards!

Usually graduation and Father’s Day gets a bit lost in the shuffle of post-National Stationery Show recaps (poor Dads and grads!), so this year I decided to space my recaps out just a bit more to leave some extra room for a couple of round ups! With college graduations actively underway and high school graduations just around the corner, here are a few cards to congratulate your favorite new graduate – plus lots more in the Market List right here!

NSS 2016 Sneak Peek: Noteworthy Paper & Press

Our final NSS 2016 Sneak Peek comes from the talented ladies of Missoula, Montana-based Noteworthy Paper & Press (booth #2141)! This year, Noteworthy Paper & Press is expanding on their collection of hand illustrated and hand lettered cards that speak to a love for nature and the beautiful world we live in. In addition to nature-inspired greeting cards, they’re also debuting flat-printed cards and art prints featuring painted sceneries with hand lettered inspirational quotes. They’re also adding screen printed tote bags, zip pouches, notepads, and (my personal favorite) colorful letterpress die cut state postcards!

NSS 2016 Sneak Peek: Ramona & Ruth

Our next NSS 2016 sneak peek comes from a familiar face, but a brand new company name! Kim of Paper Lovely recently renamed her business Ramona & Ruth after her two grandmothers. In addition to the new company name, Kim has been busy designing new greeting cards, gift tags, and notebooks – all making their debut at the National Stationery Show starting on Sunday! Kim’s focus this year has been on black and white designs with a pop of color and gold foil. So fun and refreshing!

NSS 2016 Sneak Peek: Sugar Paper

Okay everyone, hang on to your hats! It’s the final week before the National Stationery Show, and I’ve got some MAJOR sneak peeks lined up for you. And we’re starting with some serious gorgeousness from the queens of gorgeous: Sugar Paper! I think the ladies of Sugar Paper may have finally outdone themselves this year. The new release includes everything from a chambray agenda, tons of beautiful leather, new gold foil gift wrap, and the option to add gold foil monograms to journals and leather goods! Can you even handle all the pretty???

NSS 2016 Sneak Peek: Sugar Paper / Oh So Beautiful Paper

From Sugar Paper: We finally took everything we learned about planners and boiled it down into the perfect high-end planner. Our favorite layout, a simple and sophisticated design, chambray (because who doesn’t love chambray?) and gold foil touches throughout. We worked hard to get the wire ring perfectly gold and we added sections to track thank you notes and birthdays. It’s designed for smart, stylish, sophisticated women.

Aaaaaand then we added leather. Italian leather, handmade in LA. Agenda Case, business card holder, key fob, and an envelope clutch. We’re not messing around. The leather agenda cover and accessories will all debut alongside the Agenda at NSS, and will be available for purchase on our website and through our retailers at the end of the summer.

But, we didn’t stop there. We’re smitten over our brand new gold foil wrapping paper, and we couldn’t design perfect wrap without creating the perfect ribbon to match. And on top of that, we created tailored fabric-bound journals, our Signature Pens in two new colors, and an option to have a gold foil-stamped monogram added to journals and all leather products to make it all your own. It’s our best release yet. We’re in love.
