National Stationery Show

Last year I had the pleasure of attending the National Stationery Show – unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year!  Boo.  The NSS is one of the best shows to visit as a stationery designer, retailer, and a paper lover.  Held yearly in NYC’s Javits Center, this years dates are May 16-20th.  Here’s a few picks to check out if you go to the show!

Rifle Paper Co.- seriously gorgeous illustrations and stand out paper goods from Anna Bond (Winter Park, FL).

National Stationery Show

I’m so excited to be able to attend the National Stationery Show for the first time!  This is pretty much the go-to spot for all things made with beautiful, unique papers!  The annual show will have over 1000 companies exhibiting!  I can’t wait to check out the cards, invitations, and gift wrapping goods, journals, and just about everything else!

The show opens May 17th and runs to the 20th.  Also coincides with Surtex (17th-19th) and the Supply Side (19th-20th).
