NSS 2010 — Part 1

The first day of the Stationery Show was quite a whirlwind!  Ami and I have been running all over the show trying to visit as many booths as possible, although I feel like I’ve barely even made a dent in my list of booths!  I already have a ton of photos to share with you, but I thought I’d start off with a few booths either new or newly returned to the Stationery Show this year.

First up, the lovely Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co., with an incredibly well designed booth display.  If you look closely, you might even be able to see that her side walls have a woodgrain texture!

I absolutely fell in love with the booth for Mr. Boddington’s Studio.  The hand-crafted details, from the painting and hand-drawn details to the faux window displays, were just incredible — even the roof shingles were made from envelope liners!

From there, Ami and I eventually made our way down to Atelier Isabey, where we spent quite a bit of time gazing at gorgeous wedding invitations.  The laser cut invitation immediately below is one of my new favorites!

NSS Bound – Albertine Press

My last NSS sneak peak comes from Albertine Press — they've been hard at work creating a library for their collection of beautifully patterned letterpress cards and it's making it's big debut at this year's show!

Each volume of the Letterpress Library houses a different set of note cards with cover designs that recall classic book covers.  This is definitely a sneak peek that I can't wait to see in person — although I might have to resist the urge to bring an entire set back home with me…

NSS Bound – Delphine

Greetings from New York!  Today is actually the first day of the Stationery Show, but I thought I'd share a couple more designer sneak peeks before the real show photos start tomorrow.  This sneak peek comes from Delphine, who will be presenting a new collection of flat printed everyday greeting cards for this year's show:

Hooray!  The big weekend has finally arrived!  The Stationery Show officially kicks off on Sunday, and I’m heading off to New York bright and early tomorrow morning.  I can’t wait to see everyone at the show!  For those of you on twitter, you can follow my progress through the show here, or follow this list that I’ve created just for the show.  I’ll be sharing photos from the show here on OSBP all next week, but in the meantime…

Loving these dreamy butterfly garlands from This Neck of the Woods this morning:

I can totally see these being used as decor for a wedding, shower, or birthday party – or even as a playful accent for a beautifully wrapped gift!  Here's a version with scallops:
