The Best of The National Stationery Show Part 2

I’m back with more highlights from my whirlwind weekend in NYC this past May. Let’s first start with a line I can’t wait to debut later this month on Brown Ink…

No surprise, BANQUET atelier & workshop arrived with elegant colors and beautiful illustrations.

The creative and local force behind Old Tom Foolery launched a new line last year, Modern Lore, which brings in fresh imagery from different photographers throughout the country.

I’m crazy about the floral images with copper foil text and the succulent gift tags! So much so, Modern Lore is joining Brown Ink Paper Goods boutique this summer.

I’ve been a distant fan of Danni from Oh Hello Friend for years so it was such a treat to meet her in person and check out her thoughtful selection of handmade goods and stationery.

The watercolor and dip-dyed effect is still alive and kicking, my favorite coming from Moglea.

sugar paper brought some serious eye candy to the show this year and I left dreaming of the detailed gold foil notebooks, soon to hit Brown Ink as well. Sweet goods.

If you are still reading at this point, you’re in luck. I’ve continued my 4th of July Sale thru Monday for all those out-of-towners. Use code: Holiday25 for 25% OFF all goods. Now go relax!

The Best of National Stationery Show 2014, Part 1

Highlighting my trip to New York City for the National Stationery Show is not a simple task. With all the new trends and unexpected surprises to share, compiling it into one post is impossible. That said, I’ll share some of my favorite lines I spotted last month at the Javits Convention Center through a series of posts over the next few weeks. Enjoy!!

Once again, Christine from Yellow Owl Workshop worked her magic and talent within this gorgeous display space (it took her and an assistant only 2 hours to hand paint the booth!)

Emily McDowell was the show-stopper this year. With her beautiful and thoughtful hand lettered paper goods, this booth was consistently well packed with attendees.

Pineapples were popping up everywhere this year, but Hartland Brooklyn was my favorite! Emily from Hartland Brooklyn freshened up her pink neon with a new South Pacific direction.

One line soon to join the Brown Ink Paper Goods boutique is Linda & Harriett out of Brooklyn, NY. We weren’t the only ones at the show crazy for the 2015 Painted Letterpress Calendars! In general, calendars appear to be the new rage, taking the place of the faithful recipe cards.

Another soon-to-debut line on Brown Ink is Ferme a Papier. With its Tahitian-Parisian inspired collection, these lovely bold colors kept drawing me back each day to visit with creator Cat Seto.
