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.

The Southern Weddings office has been buzzing with excitement for the last few weeks over the upcoming National Stationery Show! Seeing the new line-up of gorgeous paper products is a highlight of the year for Nicole and me, and we’re excited that she’ll be in NYC attending next week (and then reporting back to y’all!). (And okay, maybe I’m a tad bit jealous. too.) Luckily, our friends at Invitations by Dawn sent some of their beautiful new lace wedding invitations to tide us over!

That’s a lot of couples whose lives they’ve been a part, and they don’t take that responsibility lightly – they really care about their couples, and have the friendliest, most knowledgeable consultants in the business. Their etiquette tips and assembly guides also make things a breeze.

Invitations by Dawn offers a huge variety of styles (with samples!), including letterpress, embossed, thermographed, and full color digital. We’re especially smitten with their lace designs, super fitting for the Southern bride who so often wears a gorgeous lace gown or veil.
