Tag: Ink Meets Paper

With one long and full day of paper-perusing behind us, Ruthie and I were happy to recharge a bit with a delicious dinner in the park with former SW intern, Alexia (who now works at Loverly!) and a couple celebrity sightings. Day Two at the Stationery Show found us re-energized and excited to see even more paper designs and inspiration to take back to the SW office.

In a rush to get some lunch in our bellies, we almost walked right past Felix Doolittle’s booth before stopping to get a better look at their illustrations. We adore the Old South feel in some of Felix’s cards, and when we mentioned how much we love the South, Felix pulled out a collection of prints that were too perfect for a Southern gent!

Moglea continues to be one of our favorite booths — their paper goodies are both beautiful to look at and an experience to hold, with thick cotton paper and a heavy letterpress impression.

Some of our favorites from Moglea’s booth this year were Meg’s new bridesmaid cards, which come with a paper flower that’s meant to be saved and pinned up somewhere, and her gold foil and watercolor prints with sentiments that were so simple and lovely.

We found eye candy and sweet sentiments galore at the Smock and Bella Figura booth. The gold foil heart invitation is a show-stopper!

The detail that Studio R puts into their designs is truly beautiful. We kept finding lace laser-cut details in their invitations and booth decor to swoon over!

The Paper Cub booth was bursting with neon and excitement! We were impressed by their entire wall full of state-themed postcards. We especially loved North Carolina’s cardinal and dogwood illustration and Georgia’s peaches.

I was really excited to find 9th Letter Press’s booth on the second day, especially since I developed a paper crush on them last year and also because I knew their booth was going to be pineapple-themed for hospitality! They delivered with hand-painted pineapples on their walls, a coffee station, and fun new designs. I really loved their notecard coupons for breakfast in bed, coffee, and more. Y’all will also be happy to hear that our favorite print last year, the Mason Jar Measuring Guide, will soon be printed digitally, making it more affordable.

Maybe it’s because Ink Meets Paper is a husband and wife duo, but I feel that they really get love. Their designs are simple, sweet and a little surprising — like their envelopes with a special message inside, their new confetti notecards, or their line of toast cards, advice cards and more that are made especially for weddings.

Stepping into One Canoe Two’s booth is like going to summer camp and all of their designs contain a little dose of nostalgia along with pops of color. Doesn’t their citrus grocery list remind you of our Freshly Squeezed shoot?

Visiting Rifle Paper Co. is always a treat and we were happy to see some Southern influence in Anna’s famous style. Orange and lemon blossoms were abundant!

I’ve got one more post up my sleeve, y’all! Stay tuned tomorrow for the last of the paper pretties we discovered at the show and an exciting treat.

My flight back to North Carolina was in the evening on Day 3 of NSS, so after stopping by Ladurée for macarons, I headed back to the Javits Center by myself to explore NSS for my own fun (and because the International Contemporary Furniture Fair was downstairs! Way cool, y’all.). I’m so glad I did because I came across a few amazing booths that I somehow missed the first two times.

I spotted Avie Design the day before with Whitney and was drawn in by their peachy stripes. The booth boasted gorgeous laser-cut invitation suites and hand folded stationery with some of the prettiest envelopes I’ve seen!

Kitchen Papers was a favorite of mine. Whitney and I must have spent a long time in their booth flipping through their placemat designs and discussing the many dinner parties we must immediately have. I adore how easy they make entertaining and just about died when I saw they had a new collegiate collection! Too perfect for parties and tailgates, no?

These little coasters spouting the new rules of etiquette were a fun find at the Grey Moggie Press booth. How fun for dinner parties at your new married digs!

(Letter C and Moglea images taken by me)

I moseyed on over to Letter C Design and Moglea on my last day at the show and fell in love with their different takes on simple designs with thoughtful purpose. Letter C’s merry bunting cards and heart pencils were absolutely snap-worthy. Y’all might recognize Moglea from their stock at Anthropologie, so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for their newest design, a mini letterguette. This jotter-like notepad has tear off thank you notes and envelopes!

(Cardtorial and Iron Curtain Press images by me)

Cardtorial’s booth was a simple beauty. Her fun sayings are laser-cut into real wood — you can even still smell the cedar! I also loved Iron Curtain Press’s Southern greetings. How fun would it be receive one of these in the mail?

(All May Designs photos taken by me)

May Designs rolled out even more patterned notebooks this year! I adored their new gingham address book, but knew y’all would love their new Sorority Row! These sorority-approved notebooks are perfect for planning events and keeping track of to-dos.

I was smitten with Allison and Daniel of Ink Meets Paper. Their tagline, “Every card has a story” perfectly describes their paper products. The best part of their notecards is a surprise note inside the envelope that says “handwritten happiness.”

(Rigel Stuhmiller image taken by me)

I was on my way to find a designer I wanted to meet when I spied Rigel Stuhmiller and had to turn around! Rigel is a talented artist and all of her products are block prints or reproductions of block prints. Though I squealed inside when I saw that she had a pug card, it was her chicken tea towels that sealed the deal.

(All Dear Hancock photos snapped by me)

I came across Dear Hancock on my way out of the show and couldn’t believe I missed seeing their adorable booth the first time around! The adorable painted dog and desk made them an instant favorite, but I also loved seeing their peony in a mason jar card and their illustrated desk collection. The details are so well thought-out!

Be sure to check out all of the fun designs at NSS! (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.)

A giant thanks again to Whitney Porter for taking these photos!
