Hello, friends! Welcome back to paper heaven! I have much more to share with you from the National Stationery Show this week, so let’s get started!
The Lettuce Press booth was so pretty and green! I loved Allison’s cute greeting cards, and I also loved the letterpressed place cards that she paired with wooden holders her husband made. A talented duo!
Next up was Linda & Harriett, one of my favorite companies. Owner Liz has a really interesting way of doing things – she pretty much debuts one new product a year. This year it was a gigantic monthly calendar/set of art prints, with designs based on antique quilting patterns. I had to sneak into the photo just to show you how big this thing is! Cyn and I had fun discussing where we might hang such a calendar in our homes.
Alee & Press was next – I really liked the industrial vibe of their booth design. Isn’t it neat to see how everyone decks out their spaces? Also, that Gone with the Wind inspired card might have won my personal award for most clever greeting at the show this year :)
Figs & Ginger was one of my favorite new exhibitors in 2011 (we featured them in V4!), and they didn’t disappoint in 2012! Plus, they’re based in Asheville, so I’m automatically a fan. Their new cake toppers caught my eye this year – aren’t they darling?
Finally (for today), I wanted to share this oversize print by Farewell Paperie. Your guests sign all around the edges, and then you frame it as a keepsake after the wedding. I think it would be fun to have guests sign in a rainbow of pen colors, or keep things monochromatic in black and white.
P.S. In case you missed them last week…
