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!

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!

If y’all follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know I spent a few days up North in New York City for this year’s National Stationery Show. It’s been a dream of mine to go to this show, y’all! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Dozens upon dozens of stationers and designers pop up adorable booths to show off their new designs each year at the show, where buyers and members of the press get to stroll through and take a look. If you’re as paper-obsessed as me or Emily, then you know how exciting this is! I was lucky enough to stroll through the aisles with Whitney Porter. She did a great job of photographing all the amazing designs we found. Of course, I couldn’t help but snap a few on my iPhone, too.

Incredibly Charming Paper and Gifts was one of the first booths we stopped at. Y’all, tell me you don’t need these adorable cocktail napkins! ICPG had a slew of customizable home goods (even doggie bowls!), but these napkins were made for summer cookouts and bridesmaids gifts.

Fine Day Press drew us in with their happy bunting, but kept us snapping away when we saw their bright fun cards!

The first thing that grabbed my eye in Flywheel Press’s booth was their large letterpresses family tree prints. Each tree is colored after a season and I love how beautifully each branch is laid out. It would make such a sweet wedding gift! Of course, their blue ribbon cards and boxed notes were too cute to pass!

Oh Kate Spade! This sparkly booth was full of adorable props and goodies. I loved the new line of stacking storage boxes in pretty pinks and florals. I can just imagine using them as a gift box and then repurposing them as storage for wedding photos and props. Happily, Whitney and I ran into Natalie Chang of Lifeguard Press while we were at the Kate Spade booth! I had to snap a photo with her.

Stopping by the Lifeguard Press booth to visit Jonathan Adler, Lilly Pulitzer and ban.do was pure fun. I loved seeing the patterned tumblers from Jonathan and Lilly and thoroughly enjoyed the idea of playing dress up at ban.do!

I was dying to get over to the Belle & Union booth! Ever since Emily met Meg last year at NSS, we’ve been happily emailing back and forth. We thought her cute sayings and designs were the perfect compliment to Southern Weddings that we started stocking her products in our shop! This year, Meg’s released the most adorable recipe tea towels, calendars and new cards.

Sideshow Press was right across from Belle & Union, and they gave us another reason to stop and get camera-happy. Their camping-themed booth was thoughtful and thorough. I loved everything from the muslin crumb bags to the notecards (how cute is that felt pennant birthday card?) and the mini message booklets. They’re perfect for mini love notes!

I was excited to meet Kristen from Thimblepress. I’ve actually had my eye on her Etsy store for months! Her shop is based in Mississippi and we loved seeing a bit of Southern flair in her designs.

Y’all, I kind of died over the Farm to Table collection from One Canoe Two. These little notecards are perfect for everyday notes and contain some of my favorite parts of the South.

That’s all for Part 1, y’all! I’ll be back soon with even more from NSS.

    I am CRAZY for stationery! I love the “I Love You A Bushel And A Peck” card. My mom sang that to me when I was little!

    Amazing!! You know I’m loving all this. I particularly adore the Bushel and a Peck print, the blue ribbon cards, the push pop confetti, and of course everything Belle & Union!
