National Stationery Show 2014, Part 8

More from the 2014 National Stationery Show! I’m always impressed by the amount of exhibitor preparation that goes into the show each year, from booth design to logistics to the most important part – product design! Meg from Belle & Union debuted a ton of new products this year (you saw a few of them in this sneak peek), from brand new aprons and tea towel designs to heirloom wood recipe boxes to greeting cards and state fair notebooks. Whew!

The Brainstorm booth was a big hit, with a gorgeous hand painted mural and a brand new collection of houseplant prints! I have a feeling the fiddle leaf fig and maidenhair fern prints will be particularly popular. I’m also completely smitten with the new illustrated map print of U.S. National Parks!

With tons of bright neon, it was impossible to miss the debut booth from screen printing artist Sue Jean Ko. Many of her designs are available as both 8 x 10″ art prints and folded greeting cards!

The booth from Gilah Press and Design was packed full of fantastic letterpress stationery and art prints! I’m loving the calligraphy silver foil holiday cards (I always love silver for the holidays) and beautiful edge painted boxed stationery sets.

The Great Lakes Goods is doing some seriously amazing things with objects and hanging decor – from the new large scale wood moon and stars to dipped wood cones (so great as jewelry holders). And how fun are the neon geometric notecards??

I’ve been a fan of the sweet illustrated stationery from Isabell’s Umbrella for a while now – it was so great to finally see it all in person in the new Fresh section of the National Stationery Show!

I’m not normally drawn to photo-based greeting cards, but I love the fresh take (and gorgeous imagery) in the collection of cards, gift tags, and art prints from Modern Lore. Several of the new designs pair beautiful photographs with copper foil text – so good!

I’ll fully admit to being a crazy cat lady and I’m pretty sure my husband would be a crazy dog man if our cats would let one in the house – so of course we had to stop by the Riverdog Prints booth!

After taking a year off, the ladies of Fawnsberg were back at this year’s show with their cozy booth full of illustrated greeting cards, beautiful new prints, writing sheets, and their classic wood handle calligraphy address stamps!

And last up for today, the beautiful booth from Wild Ink Press! I love all the color that Rebekah incorporated into her collection this year, from rainbow-hued greeting cards and gift tags to new gift wrap patterns and a monthly calendar!
