It was great to see Moglea’s new line of letterpress goodies in person. The lovely collection, which launches online this summer, includes a gorgeous calendar, oodles of pretty greeting cards and some of my favorite items from the show, hand-lettered and illustrated envelope liners that coordinated with sleek and simple letterpress notes:
Wildhorse Press’ booth was so sweet, and the hand drawn frames in which the cards were displayed were so fun and clever, as were their great new letterpress greeting card designs. Love the milk carton “Missing You”:
The Social Type’s booth was ultra sleek, the perfect backdrop for their gorgeous line, and I really wish I would’ve gotten a clearer photo of the back wall with their logo. But I was so happy to see all of these beautiful cards together in one place that I guess I got a little wobbly with my camera:
Blackbird Letterpress’ booth beckoned to me with it’s sunshine yellow walls, and inside I found so many awesome new products – multiple calendars (including two very clever perpetual calendar designs), palmistry coasters (great conversation starters), and their new collections (the “Seaside” collection is shown at the bottom in the photo below). I also loved how they displayed their clever die cut cards:
Bison Press works with a number of different artists, and their booth was filled with a wide variety of great paper goods, including wonderful gold foil stamped cards and journals and a collection of cards featuring watercolor paintings of beer cans. A great guy card idea!
Angela Liguori and Albertine Press were booth partners, and I really liked their use of more neutral, industrial elements like pipes and metal boxes as display elements, which gave the booth texture and interest while allowing their colorful goods to shine:
