How about a couple of National Stationery Show sneak peeks to start off the week?
Plane Paper (booth #1674) is bringing lots of color to the show this year with a range of lovely laser cut paper creations featuring their new Sorbet duplex paper. Tri*pop hidden message cards and bottle tags are among the fun new laser cut products that will be making their debut at the show!
And speaking of debuts, Los Angeles-based Iron Curtain Press (booth #1679) will be making their NSS debut this year with around 60 brand new letterpress cards featuring whimsical, hand drawn lettering and illustration or sleek, hand set type. Sweet!

Norman’s Printery has SO many fantastic wrapping papers available in their shop, and these mid-century modern gift wrap designs are amongst my absolute favorites. The bold, vintage-colored patterns will make any package stand out from the crowd, and the kraft paper backdrop adds a warm tone and a modern twist to the vintage-inspired designs.

It’s just about National Stationery Show time again! This year I’ll be there in spirit but, in reality, I’ll be up to my ears in moving boxes in preparation for an out-of-state move the following week (more on that later). However, even though I won’t be walking the aisles of this year’s show, I’m still as excited as ever to share a few peeks at some of the new paper goodies that will be on display!
Hammerpress (booth #1763) will be showcasing some amazing new items, including patterned gift wrap and a hand drawn badge series, both of which are beckoning, “Kristen, buy us as soon as you can” :
Happy Cactus (booth #2240) is launching a collection of eye-catching gold and silver foil stamped cards, as well as notepads, place cards, and oodles of hand drawn greeting card designs that feature great patterns and bright, festive color palettes:
