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. FromÂ familiar faces around OSBP â€“ including our very own Bailey and Emma from AntiquariaÂ and Bespoke Press â€“ to newer companies like Our Heiday,Â 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 fromÂ Our Heiday!
You might rememberÂ Sea & Lake‘s awesome narwhal card from this post a couple of months ago â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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!
