One of the design truisms I came away from National Stationery Show with is that a great vision is that much greater when presented in a series. Just witness this small sampling.
Penelope’s Press makes a bride’s thank-yous for all her service providers simple and stylish with this clever letterpressed range, $5/each. Mira Aster returned to NSS with her fabulous stitched creations, many of which use Liberty of London fabrics. For years I hoarded several that I was too greedy to send out. They’re not available yet, but keep checking back … and ask your favorite stationer to order them!
NSS was absolutely awash in prints — each bringing a maker’s vision up in scale. These are just a small sampling of those available from Our Heiday, $25/each.
Farewell Paperie doesn’t hold back on the sentiments or the gold foil, a very good thing! Prints are $28/each.
Finally, I couldn’t stop laughing at the prints in Sea + Lake Paper Co.’s booth. Fortunately Alice & Christina have a sense of humor too! Where was “Uteruses before Duderuses” when I was in my 20s? Prints are $16/pop.
Finally, not all the series were for sale. This collage in the 1Canoe2 booth perfectly encapsulates the spirit & vision of the brand, not to mention the people who make it what it is. It was one of my favorite spots at the show!
