Before we jump into a few more booths from the Stationery Show, I have one booth to share from Surtex – a separate licensing show for artists and illustrators that takes place at the Javits Center during the same week. I wish I could spend more time at Surtex, but I made sure to stop by and say hello to the incredibly talented Dinara Mirtalipova at the show. Dinara created some fabric and wallpaper prototypes with her pattern illustrations below – aren’t they amazing?? Hopefully someone will step up to produce them soon!
Okay, now back over to the National Stationery Show! Sarah from Fancy Seeing You Here had a delightfully quirky booth with everything from travel-inspired map stationery to fortune telling greeting cards (such a great idea!) to coasters. Totally up my alley!
After taking a break last year, Hello! Lucky was back in a big way at this year’s show with a bright and happy booth with tons of new cards! They also recently started incorporating gold and silver foil into their designs – with fabulous results!
COMPLETELY obsessed with these gold foil pattern note cards!
When it comes to colorful cards, no one does it better than the ladies of The Social Type! Their cards never fail to put a smile on my face, and this year they added some beautiful new matchbooks to their collection!
It feels like just yesterday that I stumbled into the debut Printerette Press booth at the 2011 show – I can’t believe this was Catherine’s third year exhibiting! In addition to her sweet letterpress greeting cards and wedding invitations, Catherine introduced a new seasonal calendar and some of the cutest notepads I’ve ever seen!
Cutest notepads ever!!
I love the way the team at Egg Press mixes graphic patterns, whimsical illustrations, and die cut shapes – often in the same card! Their booth was full of colorful greeting cards, some fun new everyday greeting cards, and pretty gift wrap.
Next up, the wonderful illustrated cards from Dear Hancock! I’m already a huge fan of their “from the desk of” and unconventional workstation cards, along with their bunny and truck card series. This year they added a monthly calendar and some fun new notepads to the mix!
Last up for today, the greeting cards, art prints, and temporary tattoos from Banquet Atelier & Workshop! The mythical creatures print below might be one of my favorite new products from the entire show – I want one for Sophie’s room!
I’ll be back with more from the 2013 National Stationery Show tomorrow!
