National Stationery Show 2014, Part 3

The 2014 National Stationery Show may have officially wrapped up yesterday (sniff!! miss you all already!), but my coverage from this year’s show is just getting started! And you guys, there were SO MANY amazing booths this year, I’m almost afraid to think of how many photos I took over the last three and a half days. So let’s get right back to it, with one of this year’s most hotly anticipated booths: Emily McDowell! I’m such a big fan of Emily’s compelling hand lettered greeting cards, prints, tea towels, tote bags, and temporary tattoos – and this year Emily added gift tags, sticker labels, and notepads to the collection!

After exhibiting with Crow and Canary a few times, Ashkahn made his official debut in a solo booth this year! I love the mix of foil and neon, not to mention irreverence and sentimentality, in his letterpress greeting cards.

Pineapples were everywhere at this year’s show (seriously), but that was perhaps most true at the debut booth from Hartland Brooklyn. Isn’t that wallpaper (made using custom gift wrap!) incredible? And so many fun greeting cards with gold foil, tropical illustrations, and yes, plenty of pineapples.

Minted‘s booth this year showcased their art prints, gold foil holiday cards, and additions to their letterpress wedding invitation and baby announcement collections. And how gorgeous is that folded paper backdrop?!?

A few more booths from the 2014 National Stationery Show! First up today, the brand new collection from a veteran exhibitor, Sycamore Street Press. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think I’m even more in love with the entire collection – from gift wrap to art prints to greeting cards – after seeing it in person at the show. So good!

National Stationery Show 2014 Scavenger Hunt!

It may only be a few years old, but the annual scavenger hunt organized by Amber from Flywheel Press has become one of my most favorite National Stationery Show traditions! Amber partners with Legion Paper and an amazing roster of exhibitors each year to offer a really fun experience for NSS attendees, from recipe cards to bingo. And this year the scavenger hunt is alphabet cards using a variety of 27 fine art papers!

National Stationery Show 2014, Part 1

Hello from the 2014 National Stationery Show! The show is just barely underway, but I thought I’d kick off my coverage with four of my favorite booths (so far) from the show! My very first stop this year was the stunning booth by Liz of Linda & Harriett. I love Liz’s bold, graphic illustration style, which she has beautifully translated into new gift wrap, notebooks, placemats, and note card sets. Liz also has four wonderful calendars this year: a crisp black + white hanging calendar, a colorful standing desk calendar, an illustrated monthly wall calendar, and a playful birthday calendar! So great!

Next up, a brand new exhibitor – Ello There – with a wonderful collection of travel-inspired prints, coasters, and notecards! I loved the National Park map and gold foil notecards! Ello There even has a fun series of fold-out city map cards with stickers to mark your favorite restaurants, food trucks, and other culinary destinations. Such a great idea!

Katie from Idlewild Co. has become one of my perennial favorites at the show with her collection of illustrated and hand painted note cards, art prints, and calendars. Katie produced three amazing 2015 calendars – cities, gems + minerals, and kaleidoscope – and I’m absolutely head over heels for her new collection of zodiac cards!

AHeirloom is exhibiting as part of the partnership between Etsy Wholesale and the National Stationery Show – and I immediately fell in love with their amazing collection of wood cutting boards and thoughtfully designed entertaining pieces! The wood cocktail muddlers are unbelievably gorgeous, and I still can’t get over the gold glitter number cake toppers!
