Continuing my report from NSS this year… It was really awesome to see the Letter & Lark booth and finally meet Colleen in person! Her booth was filled with such sweet and delicate letterpress awesomeness, made me feel so warm by visiting her booth.

Printerette Press had some really nice letterpress goodies — LOVE this pattern below. They were using this pattern on the back of their business card, too, I couldn’t help but grabbing one.

Loved stopping by the Fancy Seeing You Here booth and finally meet Sarah as I’ve missed meeting her last year. These cat prints and cards always make me smile :)

Last Sunday, I went to see the National Stationery Show at the Javits Center — it was amazing. I am so inspired and excited by all the creativity I saw!! It was really nice to see some of my favorite stationers and it was really awesome meeting new talented people, too. I snapped a few photos (not enough!), I will be posting them all here for the next few days…

The above card is from 12fifteen design + letterpress — Love the simple yet sweet card with a heart! <3 They were with the Ladies of Letterpress (can’t believe it was 2 years ago)featuring others like Ari Press, Black Heart Letterpress, Bowerbox Press, Creativity, Grey Moggie Press, Les Bois Letterpress, Noteworthy*Paper & Press, Pressbound, Steel Petal Press — Nice to meet some of you there! Couldn’t take much photos here as I was busy talking to people…

Next up is from Power & Light Press — their booth definitely caught my eye. I really like the “I bet you use Helvetica” card!

Ink Meets Paper — congratulations on their debut on NSS! It was so lovely to meet Allison and Daniel, their booth was filled with so many lovely letterpress cards. I love that their logo has a little heart like ours :)

Brainstorm — They had great posters! I first saw their work at the Renegade Craft Fair and have been a fan since.

It was a printing Friday for me… actually went to the Arm to print! Hadn’t touched Vandercook for a while so it was a fun and exciting day (but I forgot how tiring it is to print with Vandy, my arm aches already… :)). More photos will come soon with some new stuff for the shop.

Wishing you a happy weekend!! xo Hijiri
