There are always a slew of new exhibitors at every National Stationery Show, and this year was no exception! Some of the new exhibitors have been on my radar for years but just made their trade show debut this year, while others are new-to-me businesses (always a pleasant surprise at the show!), and even others are just launching their businesses. Today I thought I would introduce you to a few of those new exhibitors â€“ with a few more to come tomorrow. Let’s start with the playful hand lettered greeting cards from Pinwheel Print Shop, definitely one of my faves from this year’s show!
I love the clean, elegant aesthetic of these cards from Bred & Butter Paper Co. â€“ those pops of color are so good paired with classic black text!
It was hard to miss the bold, colorful style of Brooklyn-based Ash + Chess, for good reason! Their illustration and hand lettering style is so fresh and unique.
I love cards that make me laugh! The Lovebird Paper booth was full of bold, sassy humor â€“ from greeting cards to notepads and mugs. So fun!
So many beautiful gems in Party Sally’s debut at the National Stationery Show! Each design is created from an original watercolor painting or illustration, with plenty of shiny gold foil sprinkled throughout the collection.
I’m a huge fan of the bold, graphic style of And Here We Are. Gotta love those monstera leaf illustrations and pops of neon!
Ivy House was a surprise find at this year’s show â€“ I just love her illustration style and sweet sentiments! Designer and illustrator Rachel Cohen previously worked in textile design and art education, which definitely shines through her loose, nature-inspired patterns and illustrations.
I literally stopped and did a u-turn after spotting these colorful pencils from UK-based I Am A out of the corner of my eye. Isn’t this unicorn set (with rainbow foil!!) the CUTEST??? I also love the cheerful emoji cards and scratch off cards â€“ with a secret emoji hidden underneath!
I mentioned Tokketok in the round up of beautiful booth designs, and the products inside were equally gorgeous! I particularly love these gold foil notepads, which come with a variety of messages in rainbow colors. Keep a couple of notepads at the office to write out quick thank you notes or birthday notes to colleagues, or even at home to leave little love notes for your spouse or kids!
That’s it for today! You can browse all the booths from this year’s show right here, and I’ll be back with more new exhibitors tomorrow!
