Before I begin sharing the best of the best I found at last week’s National Stationery Show, here were a few highlights from the month I would not want to overlook!….
First off, I’m thrilled about the release this week of the National Parks stationery set found on The Reed; a new site created by Lizzie Garrett Mettler (the woman behind Tomboy Style) to explore movement, travel, and adventure. The set is a collaboration between Brown Ink and The Reed (with great support from Pomegranate Press!) inspired by generations of Americans hitting the road to explore our glorious National Parks.
Next up, the people behind Bond (robots that write notes…more on this later) has teamed up with KINDSnacks for Military Appreciation Month by turning tweets of gratitude into handwritten notes which will be delivered to US soldiers around the world. Tweet thank-you’s to America’s bravest! #thankskindly
On to my favorite international paper goods shop, Rad and Hungry. They are celebrating their 50th STMT Kit with a custom Scottish goods kit and their first ever T-shirt (free with orders over $100) thru May 31st. Each kit is locally sourced in each city and filled with limited-edition lo-fi office supplies from a company that is crazy about paper goods! Speaking of office supplies…
Who says we all have to rely on technology for our Summer road trips with the kids? All for the Boys reminds us we simply need to look into our office supply drawer to find loads of ideas to bring out our imagination and get you to your destination in peace and without a screen!
Finally, the Letters Live events are picking up speed, a unique lineup of outstanding artists reading remarkable letters to a captive audience. Last Sunday’s performances at the Hay Festival must have been mind blowing as others listened to actors celebrate the pain, joy, humor and wisdom found in each letter they read. Check out the Letters Live in CA next month!
