Okay! We’re back from the long weekend and ready to kick off recaps from the 2015 National Stationery Show! There were a ton of new exhibitors at this year’s show, so I thought we’d start with a few of those debuts for our first recap post. From familiar faces around OSBP – including our very own Bailey and Emma from Antiquaria and Bespoke Press – to newer companies like Our Heiday, Sea & Lake, and Hen Pen Paper Co., it was fun to see such strong debuts at this year’s show. We’ll begin with the beautiful hand painted and hand lettered designs from Our Heiday!
You might remember Sea & Lake‘s awesome narwhal card from this post a couple of months ago – and there’s a lot more where that came from! These ladies have a way with words (I love their Cards for Allies series), from greeting cards and notepads to gift wrap and mugs!
I’ve been following the beautiful work of Alischa from Bespoke Letterpress out of Australia for years – it was so wonderful to finally see everything in person! I loved the foil art prints and greeting cards (including a fun sparkly gold foil!) and double sided gift wrap. Alischa even wallpapered her entire booth in one of her gift wrap patterns!
Antiquaria’s debut booth was absolutely stunning – and full of gorgeous stationery, art prints, and gift wrap! Bailey and Emma had every base covered in their booth, from tropical botanicals to western cactus designs to delicate floral patterns. It has been so fun to watch Antiquaria grow over the last few years, and I can’t wait to see where they go from here!
Last up for today – sweet hand lettered greeting cards, hand painted gift wrap, and art prints from Hen Pen Paper Co.!
More from the 2015 National Stationery Show tomorrow!

This makes me so happy. Mostly I just want to know how you get the job designing these booths. I’ll quit my job right now.
Rena, if you can believe it, most of the exhibitors design them all themselves! A lot of my stationery buddies were first-time exhibitors this year, and the amount of time (and money) that goes into the booths is incredible.
Nole – it was completely wonderful to finally get to meet you! One of the highlights from our trip 🙂
It was unanimous by all attendees and exhibitors alike–you get the award for most gorgeous booth! That bar was just…incredible. Well done!
Great highlights! I was super impressed with the strength of all the debuts this year, too!
So excited these posts are starting. Your recaps of NSS are my favorite! Huge fan already of Our Heiday, and I was introduced to Bespoke Letterpress through the NSS hashtag and everyone who was there. Beautiful work! Also, love that gift wrap from Hen Pen Paper Co. — so hilarious!
These recaps are always my fave posts! Thanks for the wonderful photos–it feels like I’m there!
many are lovely, but basically they all look alike. argh!
