Stationery A-Z: Hand Lettered Greeting Cards

Normally for these posts I round up a group of cards around a particular occasion: birthdays, thank you cards, new baby cards, etc. But today I thought I’d do something a little different – and round up a few favorite cards featuring a common design theme: hand lettering! I hope you enjoy this round up as much as I enjoyed putting it together!

National Stationery Show 2014, Part 10

Every year at the National Stationery Show, there are a couple of rows that are packed so full of amazing stationers (many of whom are also friends with each other in real life) that I know it’s going to take me an entire day just to walk that row. I often save these rows for the very last day of the show, because I’m afraid I won’t make it through the other aisles if I go any sooner! So today I thought I’d share a few of those booths, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
