National Stationery Show 2011 (Part II)

Enough of the small talk – let’s get this party started, shall we? One of my first stops and biggest loves at the show this year was Fig. 2 Design Studio. Claudia’s work is playful and celebratory, with bright neon colors, fabulous calligraphy from Meant To Be Calligraphy and a joyful spirit.

Sugarcube Press is a long time favorite of mine. Their designs are a bit quirky, a lot tongue in cheek and the perfect balance of great color and awesome type. Decked out in letterpress bunting and a spray of paper flowers, I also loved their booth design this year.

Next up, I loved getting to finally meet Rebekah of Wild Ink Press in person at the show this year. Such a lovely lovely lady! Inspired by beautiful textiles and world travels, her debut show collection was pitch perfect.

Love that little tractor card! Remind you of this birthday party a little bit? I also love the goodies Rebekah was giving away – too cute!

Another booth, another friend! This time I was off to see Carrie of Anemone Letterpress. Neon was definitely a recurring theme this year and Carrie was rockin’ it in style. I love her cute, light-hearted illustrations and witty greeting cards. A little wit goes a long way in my world.

Perfect for hostess gifts and parties, I was digging the letterpress wine bottle tags and gift tags that Jodi from Paisley Tree Press was showing this year. Seriously. Show up at a party with a bottle of something nice and one of these fun little tags and you’ll be the star of the show.

Stay tuned – there is much more to come!

I love the gift tags for the wine bottles - really creative sayings that would be great additions to any couple giving wine as favors for their event. Thanks for sharing this post....

"You've tamed me" and "well done." Those cards crack me up! I love creative methods for old school correspondence. Hurrah!

Thanks for including our little dog-and-pony show with such talented company! I didn't even see Jodi's bottle tags at the show – they are killing me. HI-larious!
