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…
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 :)
I could NOT have done the National Stationery Show without these amazing gals. They are all so professional, talented, and very fun to work with, I was really happy to be a part of this great group of people. Thank you so much to every single one of you (and your friends, spouses and families) for the wonderful show! You guys are THE BEST!!
I took everyone’s booth pictures and wanted to share — in alphabetical order, first up is:
The set up day 2 started with placing our shelves evenly and put up the vinyl logo stickers — oh boy, was it hard!
I’m short and pregnant, so my booth mates helped me (thank you!)…
but for some reason, the sticker was so not straight… so we had to stop. Luckily, I had 2 vinyl stickers (1 was a little mess-up, but that saved my life!) so we decided to peel this off with hair dryer, which Wally (Carrie‘s husband) ran back to their hotel and get for me. (Thank you again so much!!)
I still can’t believe how awesome the stationery show was… I wanted to document as much as possible as a first timer (and for those of you who are thinking about exhibiting next year) so I will be sharing what went on behind the scenes first…
The set up day 1 — when we arrived, our booth was filled with crates… (none of them were ours!) and the wall was only half way installed… (see below)
Our aisle 2300 was empty!
After a while, the wall installation completed, more and more booth mates showed up, we built tables and stools…
By the end of the day 1, most of the shelves were built, tables and chairs were built, met most of our lovely Ladies of Letterpress gals :)
