Some stationers decide to combine efforts and share booth space at the National Stationery Show, either by working with a rep who oversees the whole booth or by simply dividing the booth square footage amongst the participating stationers. Â This year there were three such booths, so I thought I’d end the week with these three booths since there’s a LOT of stationery eye candy in each one! Â First up, three Seattle-based stationers sharing a booth â€“ Ilee Paper Goods, Orange Twist, and Tutta Lou.
I always have a great time visiting the Ladies of Letterpress booth at the Stationery Show. Â I love that the organization provides an opportunity for their members to test the wholesale waters â€“ and it’s so fun to see members go on to exhibit in their own booths year after year. Â This year there were eleven talented letterpress stationers exhibiting in the booth!
I loved the combination of hand-carved wood block illustrations and gold foil text on these holiday cards!
Shauna and Stephen from Seed House did such an amazing job with their stationery debut â€“ everything was so soft and delicate and full of vintage-inspired charm!
Meg from Moglea also made a big splash at this year’s show with her collection of letterpress cards and stationery sets. Â I also loved her illustrated quarterly wall calendar!
Fancy Seeing You Here is a new-to-me stationery company, but I was smitten with the collection of bright and colorful letterpress cards!
Carina from Crow and Canary is one of my favorite people in the stationery biz and she put together an awesome booth at this year’s show with some of my favorite stationers, from Paper + Cup to Enormous Champion and lots, lots more.
That’s it for now â€“ coverage of the 2012 National Stationery Show will continue next week!
