The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 6

Today’s recap from the 2016 National Stationery Show is less about a common design style or color palette, and more about an overall vibe. In my head, I’ve been calling this group of booths the New Bohemians. Each booth has a laid back, offbeat vibe, with plenty of botanical details throughout. Let’s start with Wild Hart Paper, which was full of beautiful greeting cards, art prints, gift wrap, and more!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 5

Earlier this week I shared a recap from the 2016 National Stationery Show that was all about color – or at least the first installment of that theme, since there were a LOT of colorful exhibitors at this year’s show! Well, this recap is all about FOIL, from the now classic gold foil to my current favorite hologram foil and everything in between! In some booths foil was definitely one of the brightest stars of the show, while other exhibitors used foil sparingly to complement offset or letterpress printed designs. First up, the ladies of The Social Type with an exuberant booth full of glittering and shiny foil!

There was so much to fall in love with in the Fox & Fallow booth! Colorful greeting cards with foil stamped lettering, tropical vibes everywhere, new calendars and planners, notebooks, notepads, and to do lists – and of course their beautiful hand lettered chalkboard wedding signs!

Fellow Aussie exhibitor Blushing Confetti made their NSS debut at this year’s show with a series of foil stamped cards, art prints, notepads, gift tags, and an absolutely GORGEOUS calendar!

I love, love, love this calendar! There’s just enough room in each rectangle to write a little note if you want to, and the heavyweight brass hanger is just so substantial and beautiful.

Rebekah of Wild Ink Press definitely doesn’t skimp when it comes to printing methods. She often combines offset and letterpress printing with foil in her greeting card designs, sometimes even multiple letterpress ink and foil colors! I’m loving her new foil stamped notebooks!

Smitten on Paper is all about beautiful, clean, and simple designs – and all entirely foil stamped! The booth featured foil-stamped greeting cards, notebooks, and notepads. I’m a big fan of their weekly and daily planner notepads!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 4

Last week I shared a few booths from the 2016 National Stationery Show that featured more pared down color palettes, but today’s recap post is all about booths that featured color in a MAJOR way! From neon to a rainbow of color-organized cards and notebooks, each of these booths features a ton of vibrant color. First up, the ladies of Anne and Kate with their modern screen printed art prints and greeting cards! The whole line just says FUN FUN FUN!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 3

Today we’re getting back to recaps from the 2016 National Stationery Show! I have a recap planned for later this week featuring booths that were practically an explosion of color, but first I thought we’d take a look at a few booths that deployed color in a more restrained and strategic way – from black and white patterns to single color letterpress printed cards to foil printed cards with a swath of hand-painted color. First up, Ramona & Ruth! I love the way designer Kim Burks combines graphic black and white patterns – like stripes and spotty dots – with pops of color or shiny gold foil!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 2

As exciting as it is to see brand new exhibitors at the National Stationery Show each year, I always look forward to visiting veteran exhibitors who I know I can count on to wow me at the show. So this is just the first recap featuring a few of the exhibitors that form the heart of my can’t-miss-list at the show year after year, from Sugar Paper to Rifle Paper Co. to Moglea. As expected, Sugar Paper just completely knocked it out of the park with their new collection of leather and chambray folio covers and desk accessories (all with a gold foil monogram option!), along with new office stationery (I’m in love with that weekly to do list), greeting cards, and more!
