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.

By the middle of Day 1, Whitney and I had seen more pretty paper products than we could imagine, but there was still so much more to see!

(Bottom right image snagged from my iPhone)

Ladyfingers Letterpress hand draws all of their designs, and they sure are cute! My favorite part of the day was getting to witness Arley Rose’s hand lettering in person. She wrote out the first half of Southern Wedding’s favorite phrase!

Mr. Boddington’s Studio was dressed up in stuffed fabric kites and sweet designs. Their signature illustrated style was most adorable on their recipe cards, in my opinion!

One of my favorite new exhibitors was 9th Letter Press. Isabel, the creative brain behind it all, has been hard at work for the past year creating the most adorable cards and prints. Whitney and I had a great time getting to know her and joking about this card in particular. One of my favorites was the measuring chart above. It would be adorable framed in a newlywed kitchen!

Paper Lovely and Fat Bunny Press may have had one of my favorite booths at NSS this year. The pretty garland and mint colored walls kill me! In addition, Paper Lovely had a few darling mason jar and herbs cards that I’d love to add to my paper collection for everyday notes.

Checkerboard’s booth was crowded every time we passed it, and for good reason. Their new line of wedding invitations is inspired by classic romances like the Great Gatsby and Gone with the Wind. Their envelope shapes were positively gorgeous, y’all. They also started making custom wedding plates! Perfect for cutting that first piece of cake, no?

We always swoon over samples that Smock sends us in the mail, so seeing their booth was a great treat! They are masters of gorgeous letterpressed invitation suites and letterpress packages. My favorites were the cream and black script invitations and the nautical cheery red suite.

Printerette’s designs are just as darling as their name. Their single-color letterpressed invitation at the top left caught my eye first. The heart is a fluorescent and beautiful in person. Whitney and I also squealed a bit when we saw their summer calendar print. It reminds me a bit of our Blue Ribbon Bounty feature from V5.

Rifle Paper Co. had a stunning booth — hand painted by Anna Rifle Bond herself the night before the show and decorated in beautiful floral arrangements! I wanted to walk away with their new tin recipe boxes, but I managed to practice some self control.

See Part 1 here and stay tuned for more from NSS tomorrow!

    I have a serious Rifle Paper Company obsession–this post is just fueling that! Love the invitation suites from Smock Paper and the pretty Checkerboard calligraphy as well. Looks like you had so much fun! :)

    Oh my word, where to begin?? I love the “hold on tight!” wine tags, Mr. Boddington’s peach card, the bears + honey card, Printerette’s summer calendar, and Rifle’s new recipe boxes, to start!!

    Will you all be selling the featured thank you note with the pink flower labeled GC-106? If not, do you know where I can find them? If so, please let me know when you have them for sale!

      Hi Morgan! I’m not sure which card you’re referring to, but we don’t currently have plans to sell anything in this post. I’d suggest checking directly with the stationer or checking their website to see a list of retailers!

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!
