One of the best parts of the National Stationery Show is getting to meet the other exhibitors and seeing what’s new. I already had my list of must-visit booths (which I shared over here on The Paper Chronicles), and I was not disappointed. Here’s a roundup of my favorites!


NSS 2016 Favorite Booths: Richie Designs | Smudge Ink
Richele's sense of humor is spot on! I should just carry that yoga pants card around and show it to every other person on the street. You know what I'm talking about! Check out the coordinating mugs and notepads and more awesome goodies over here.


NSS 2016 Favorite Booths: E. Frances | Smudge Ink
E. Frances Paper’s watercolors are the prettiest. I love how their cards are perfectly sentimental without being sappy. Who knew an ordinary little glue bottle could tug at your heartstrings? Find more beautiful cards from this sweet little company here.


NSS 2016 Favorite Booths: Yellow Owl Workshop | Smudge InkYellow Owl Workshop’s booth was just as bright and playful as I was expecting! I couldn't pass this card without smiling, and I appreciated the memories that this card brought to mind. Food and puns – what’s not to love? Don’t miss their fun cards, diy kits, and stamps here.


NSS 2016 Favorite Booths: Sapling Press | Smudge Ink
Even if you have the shortest attention span, you will not be able to tear yourself away from reading every single card by Sapling Press like I did. It's like Lisa knows what we’re thinking (adult coloring books) and then injects them with a refreshing hilarity and sarcasm that makes us laugh at ourselves. Get more laughs over here.


NSS 2016 Favorite Booths: Thimblepress | Smudge Ink
The Thimblepress booth was bold and beautiful! I'm a sucker for everything confetti. Put said confetti and a card together, you’ve got a party in the mail. So clever! Kristen also pointed out her new stand-up cards. They come up with small enclosure cards that go right onto the “plant.” Get yours here (you know you want one!).

Catch up on Part 1 and Part 2 of our recaps!
