National Stationery Show 2011 – Part 5

Well, the 2011 National Stationery Show has officially come to a close – although of course my coverage from this year’s show is far from over!  And while it’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to everyone, I can cheer myself up with more photos from this year’s exhibitions.  First up for today, Hello!Lucky – which always has a fun booth full of personality and lots (and lots) of color.


After making their debut at last year’s show, Pistachio Press was back this year with lots of new products, including some gorgeous cross-stitch note cards, notebooks, and calendars, along with colorful birthday cards and wedding invitations.

I’m loving all of the new fabric tote bags from Chewing the Cud, not to mention the new patterns in Viola’s line of fabric gift wrap.  And those new rubber stamp sets?  Couldn’t be cuter!

Lisa from Sapling Press just may be the funniest person I know – and you don’t need to look further than her cards for proof.  Oh, and don’t forget about these awesome tote bags!

Night Owl Paper Goods is a perennial favorite at the Stationery Show, and this year is no exception!  The Night Owl team recently added some fun wood veneer banners and lots of cute new designs to their collection of letterpress and wood veneer note cards, prints, calendars, and note books.

Color was definitely back in a big way at this show, and I was so happy to see lots of vibrant color at Egg Press – from touches of neon to unusual color combinations on some of the holiday cards – alongside sweet illustrations and fun geometric patterns.

I really love seeing stationers experiment with die cuts to achieve unique card shapes – and these heart-shaped cards are too cute!

Color also had a large presence at Fine Day Press, from Ashley’s letterpress note cards to her new illustrated calendar.  So pretty!
