National Stationery Show 2012 (Part II)

Wow! I am honestly loving the show this year and have so many great new things to share with you. Let’s get right back at it, shall we? First up today, Grey Cardigan, a brand new exhibitor at the show and one of my favorite booth designs from the entire show this year. Featuring a modern and quirky collection of art prints and cards, I love the debut collection that Brian put together.

Next up, another new exhibitor, Rocket Ink. Featuring beautiful hand lettering and illustrations, Katie’s collection of cards, notebooks and bookplates were a big win for me.

Back for her second year at the show, Claudia from Fig. 2 Design Studio brought new letterpress wedding invitations as well as introducing a new collection of gift wrap and new cards. Of course, as expected, her booth was impeccably designed once again this year.

Returning to the show after a hiatus for a couple of years, the new collection of cards from Sugar Paper did not disappoint. I love their use of lettering, bright gold foil and inspired envelope liners.

Another newbie to the show, Pei Design debuted a darling collection of cards, notebooks and pencils. I love their fill-in letterpress party invitations which are perfect for birthday parties, impromptu gatherings and dinner parties.

I’ve long been a fan of Chewing the Cud and it’s pretty easy to see why. Viola designs the most gorgeous reusable gift wraps, totes, cards and cloth baskets. Her patterns are always fresh and colorful and I personally want her baskets and totes all over my house.

An oldie but a goodie, Old School Stationers was back at it this year with a colorful assortment of cards and prints that pretty much had me at hello. The new 2013 calendar? To die for. It’s absolutely on my wish list.

And finally, the sweet Suann of Simplesong debuted at the show this year. Her collection of envelopes, cards, gift tags and wax seals was the perfect reflection of her signature look. Plus, I can’t get enough of her white-on-kraft letterpress calendar.
