As exciting as it is to see brand new exhibitors at the National Stationery Show each year, I always look forward to visiting veteran exhibitors who I know I can count on to wow me at the show. So this is just the first recap featuring a few of the exhibitors that form the heart of my can’t-miss-list at the show year after year, from Sugar Paper to Rifle Paper Co. to Moglea. As expected, Sugar Paper just completely knocked it out of the park with their new collection of leather and chambray folio covers and desk accessories (all with a gold foil monogram option!), along with new office stationery (I’m in love with that weekly to do list), greeting cards, and more!
As always, this post is FULL of photos – so click through to continue reading after the jump!
Love these new holiday mini envelope cards – perfect for gift cards!
Um, can I just move in to the Rifle Paper Co. booth? Also, absolutely GORGEOUS new weekly agendas with bookcloth covers (I just pre-ordered a pink version) and a brand new old school ADDRESS book! I included some sneak peeks of the inside pages of both the weekly agenda and address book below – the address book has a perpetual calendar for keeping track of birthdays and pockets in each cover to hold cards, notes, etc. So exciting!

I absolutely LOVED the iridescent vibe happening in the Yellow Owl Workshop booth this year, not to mention all the fabulous new risograph cards and art prints!
Emily McDowell has been super busy, with a bunch of new greeting cards (including some with gold foil!), new gift bags (!!), along with new magnets and enamel pins!
The Hello!Lucky booth always contains such a wonderful burst of color! The ladies of Hello!Lucky just added a series of cards printed on bright white paper to the collection, which makes the color pop off the page even MORE!
And finally for today, Moglea! I wanted to take everything in the Moglea booth back home with me – from the cards to the hand painted booth walls! I love the way Meg incorporates unique, individually painted pieces into her wholesale collection, and it’s so cool to see different printing methods pop up in the collection – like a letterpress half tone print under a hand painted color flourish.
