Southern Weddings

Tag: belle & union

One of the most impressive parts of the Stationery Show — aside from the truly vast amount of booths in one building — is the amount of personality in the convention center. Seeing each designer’s take on similar themes, from indie to preppy and sarcastic to sentimental, makes the trip consistently packed with visual stimulation. Part of why we love paper is the same as why we love weddings: each design represents a unique story. Though our feet were aching by the time we reached this part of the show, we couldn’t resist continuing until it ended for the day just so we could see more designers’ takes on traditional greeting card sentiments!

Oh, Belle and Union! You get us every time. It was so difficult culling down the dozens of photos we took of this booth to just a few. Designer, Meg and her sweet Southern products are such a perfect fit for SW that we couldn’t resist sharing more than a peek at her amazing booth and just a few of her new products. My favorite parts of her booth were the Southern vintage hardware and the produce-stuffed floral arrangement — the perfect complement to Meg’s tea towels, recipe cards and wooden recipe box.

Belle and Union makes our favorite Southern phrases even cuter than usual!

Dear Hancock’s booth is always a favorite of mine. Their floral illustrations are bright and cheery, making their cards a great option for spring weddings! How fun is that football card for groomsmen?

We got a good laugh perusing Emily McDowell’s designs, but Ruthie and I both let out an “aww” when we saw these two cards on display.

Farewell Paperie (top) spoke our language with their new marriage card — Sweet Tea Society perfection, we think! At the Pink Orchid Press booth (bottom), interactive connect-the-dots cards made us want to receive them from our beaus!

Love and warm fuzzy feelings were rampant at the Oh Hello Friend booth. Their cards put sentiments we’ve all felt into adorable paper form, and we loved seeing little packaging details throughout the shelves! Heart-printed tape and wooden gift tags would be adorable for wedding favors and gifts!

Whimsical hand lettering and fun die-cut shapes at Creative Lab Press drew us in immediately and we instantly fell in love with this new-to-us stationer. We were positively smitten with the state-shaped greeting cards! Luckily, more states (including Texas and other Southern gems) are being added to the collection soon. We think they’d be perfect for relocated newlyweds!

Two more letterpressed favorites were discovered at the Ladies of Letterpress booth (a collective of letterpress-savvy gals with tons of creativity). The beautifully pressed invitation suite from Smokey Road Press was both rustic and bright at the same time. On the other side, Missive crafts four words into the best combination we know.

It was as if these “happy engagement” cards from Iron Curtain Press came straight from my own thoughts! When you’re happy about an impending marriage, sometimes all that needs to be said is, “EEEE!!!”

Praxium Press was another Southern favorite at the show. Cards based on banana pudding, sweet potatoes and okra go right up our alley.

Ruthie and I were so happy to meet the couple behind Betsy Ann Paper. Their happy yellow booth was a welcome boost toward the end of the day, too, and displayed the sweetest illustrations and paintings. Their wedding collection was a darling mix of traditional and whimsical. I adore the chapel card!

While we love pretty prints, we especially appreciate those that have a message. On the left, the “Bless this home” print from Fawnsberg would make a thoughtful wedding shower gift. On the right, Starshaped Press’ Farmer’s Market print reminds us of Southern retro design and the bounty of the South.

Stay tuned, y’all! I’m only halfway done sharing our favorites from the Stationery Show. Which design do you think fits your personality best?

    I love the one that says written in the stars. My Nannie use to sing me the song ” The Keeper of the Stars”when I was real small, and this card reminds me of that song. This is how I feel about my fiancé. Our up coming marriage was written in the stars!

  31. avatar Melissa W. reply

    My favorite Belle & Union letterpress card would have to be a toss up between “You’re a Peach” & “I Love You A Bushel & A Peck”. My fiancé is a farmer so we love & we love bsushels of wheat. The saying just seems fitting for us. Also, who doesnt love peaches? It’s a theme for our wedding!

    If I had to choose (they are all so fabulous) a favorite card it would have to be “You’re a Peach”. What a perfect thank you card!

  37. avatar Brandi L. reply

    Oh my darlin’ is by far my favorite for two reason. My great uncle, that lived in Virginia, would make surprise visits to us in Georgia and every time he walked in the door you would hear that deep voice saying “Hello Darlin’.” Luckily my uncle picked it up along the way so I still get to hear it. The second reason is sophomore year in college a friend bought a banjo on a whim and another friend learned the WHOLE song of “Oh My Darlin’.” Let me tell you it’s long.

  38. avatar Lauren reply

    Love the ‘you butter my biscuit’ card! So cute!

  61. avatar Lindy reply

    I have loved Belle& Union’s tea towels ever since I spotted them at ShopSCAD here in Savannah. I would love to add those to our kitchen!

  62. avatar Mandy reply

    Wow, what a difficult decision. So many of these phrases are so dear to my heart. I have always dreamed of having a southern home to truly express my Georgia roots. I honestly can’t choose just one but “Bless your heart” and “you butter my biscuit” are definitely a top two!

    The You’re My Huckleberry card is my favorite! :)

  66. avatar Jessica Tarter reply

    I love them all! haha but seriously…
    IF I had to choose just one it would have to be the “I love you a bushel and a peck” one. I just love this southern saying. My grandpa used to tell me he loved me a bushel and a peck and a hug around the foot (instead of the neck) just to be goofy and make me laugh.

  67. avatar Kate Eggleston reply

    I’m a big fan of the “I love you a bushel and a peck” card. My grandfather used to sing that song all the time when i was a little girl! Plus the card is just beautiful!!!

  68. avatar Jessa R. reply

    Cute as a speckled pup in a wagon <– my favorite at the moment! I can't wait to send my sister the "oh my darlin'" card when the moment is right!

  69. avatar Amy S. reply

    You’re a peach is definitely my favorite as a girl from NC who moved to Savannah, GA for grad school!

  70. avatar Kim reply

    The “You’re my huckleberry” card is too cute!

  71. avatar Katie Minnick reply

    Oh oh oh! I took a letterpress class in college and absolutely fell in love with it. I have dreams of opening up my own studio one day.. Alas, college debt prevents me so right now. Instead, I just drool over letterpress products! My absolute favorite letterpress card from Belle & Union is “You butter my biscuit.” Hilarious. Love it! Would love to win. :)

  72. avatar Hailey Sumner reply

  73. avatar Mallory Swann reply

    So hard to pick just one!! I think it’s a tie between “Bless your heart” and “You’re a peach”

    I LOVE the ‘Hey there sugar’ card! My husband and I have called each other some variation of the pet name sugar, like sug and suggy, since we first started dating. This card makes me think of him!

    My favorite Belle & Union card is “You make me a happy camper” because it was on a group camping trip that I realized I loved my husband (boyfriend at the time). I always enjoyed camping with my family and friends, but I have never been a happier camper than when I am with him :)

  99. avatar Lynsey Beasley reply

    My favorite letter press card is the American flag for Operation Write Home.

  132. avatar Jessica Black reply

    My favorite Belle & Union letter press is probably “I love you a bushel and a peck,” because my Grandma used to say that to me and end with “and a hug around the neck.” Brings back memories. I love them all, though, really.

    Because my favorite musical is Guys and Dolls! I was a member of the crew on my high school’s performance of this show, and it will always be a true love of mine. Miss Adelaide sings the song “Bushel and a Peck” at the Hot Box in the show! :)

My sixth and final National Stationery Show recap contains some SUPER Southern gems. Let’s get started!

I just about died and went to Southern heaven when I walked into the Belle & Union booth! It was their first time exhibiting, and they sure bowled me over. Expect to see a lot more of this Southern goodness coming at you over the next few months!

Of course, old favorites are always nice to see, too, like our talented friends at Rifle Paper Co! Did I tell you that they designed my future sister in law’s wedding invitations? They did, and they were beautiful!

Up next was May Books, another new one to me. I loved their colorful patterned covers, and their motto – “life is too short for ugly notebooks.” Indeed! These customizable gems would make another great bridesmaid gift.

I was so excited to get to the Fig. 2 Design booth, not only because I love Claudia’s invitations and stationery, but because we had recently been corresponding about a fun collaboration for V5! You’ll have to wait until the fall for the reveal, but it’s goooood!

I loved this sweet little ribbon and gold shimmery backdrop at the Great Lakes Goods booth.

Don’t you love traveling halfway across the country only to meet someone from the next town over? That’s what happened with This Paper Ship, one of my favorite new exhibitors! Their booth was so cute, and I loved that they’re our Chapel Hill neighbors.

I thought this month-by-month watercolor calendar from Fine Day Press was especially beautiful.

As always, Dear Hancock had some beautiful hand-drawn and watercolored cards, but I especially liked their new product, the stand-in peony, which is meant to sit on your desk when you can’t have fresh flowers! Such a sweet idea!

The fill-in card for the year you were married was my favorite design at the Double Bravo booth. Again, such a great frame-able keepsake!

Flywheel Press was showing an assortment of adorable and just plain cool cards. I’m not even sure how those metallic, ombre-looking cards were printed, but they were really neat!

Last but most certainly not least was Rebecca from Wild Ink Press. I loved her sweet + cute greeting cards! Also, her business cards were THE COOLEST.

And that concludes my coverage of the 2012 National Stationery Show! I hoped you enjoyed seeing all the paper goodness that was on display this year. Let’s give one last huge thank you to Cyn Kain, who snapped all of these photos for your viewing pleasure!
