National Stationery Show 2011 – Part 11

Today we’re knocking out the last of the coverage from the 2011 National Stationery Show with two final posts.  First up for today, Gilah Press + Design – these folks are based out of Baltimore (making us practically neighbors), but it’s always a treat to see their exquisite letterpress cards and paper goods at the Stationery Show.  This year I’m loving the pops of neon, quirky illustrated city cards, and letterpress overprinting.

Love these hashtag cards!

Amber from a.favorite design has a snarky sense of humor and isn’t afraid to show it in her cards.  Her collection of quirky cards are equal parts vintage-inspired letterpress and bold, colorful graphics.  So fun!

Fugu Fugu Press is another longtime favorite – these adorable illustrated cards always bring a smile to my face.  Here are a few of my favorites from the newest additions to their collection.

Another consistent favorite from the show – Greenwich Letterpress, with a bunch of new cards and a nice combination of traditional greeting cards and some quirky (and funny) designs.

I was super excited to see color make a big return to the show this year, and nowhere was that more apparent than over at the Pie Bird Press booth.  Hannah’s booth was full of her unique letterpress cards, calendars, and notebooks, along with fun textiles like tea towels and tote bags.

Another studio making their trade show debut at this year’s Stationery Show – Massachusetts-based Headcase Press.  You can check out their full collection right here, but here are a few of my favorites from the show:

After taking a break last year, I was thrilled to see La Familia Green return to this year’s Stationery Show.  Mollie creates all of her cards from shapes of hand cut paper or using her own illustrations, and the La Familia Green collection is always one of the most unique and creative in the entire show.

Lots of pretty paper eye candy over at the Paper Boat Studios booth, including greeting cards, artwork, games, wedding invitations, calendars, and actual paper boats!

We’ll wrap this post up with a new-to-me exhibitor – DeLuce Design.  I was immediately smitten with this collection of incredibly sweet letterpress cards with lots of cute illustrations and pretty hand lettering and calligraphy.
