One of our favorite parts of the National Stationery Show is seeing the amazing work of our friends and peers in the industry. Here are few of the booths we were totally crushing on at the show this year!
CLAYTON'S PICK: LARK + RAVEN
Lark + Raven has a pretty darn rad Instagram, and I've always been most attracted to their gram's remarkable use of color and playful graphic imagery. Their booth boasted the same sophisticated and playful use of color as their gram. Their swankily fun highlighter yellow sofa and funnily taboo graphic throw pillows were standouts. I was tickled pink to have met the owner Allie and her cousin at their booth. Allie used to work in the design world for a bit and decided to embark on the road to greeting cards three years ago with Lark + Raven's first official NSS Show in 2015.
SARAH'S PICK: EGG PRESS
Egg Press is a favorite of mine because the first letterpress card I bought was their creation! I love the silliness, originality and especially the quality of each and every design. They were gracious enough to let me poke around their booth and take some photos of my favorite card (the camel Valentine!) and a few of their awesome holiday offerings. Thank you, Egg Press!
ERIN'S PICK: FROG & TOAD PRESS
The booth I was really excited to see at NSS was Frog and Toad Press from Providence, RI. I've been admiring their cards and Star Wars pennants for a while now, and I was looking forward to seeing them in person. The booth was bright and inviting, and I loved the fun little details (googly eyes on the wallpaper animals!).
APRIL'S PICK: WISHBONE LETTERPRESS
I was so happy to see Wishbone Letterpress at NSS this year! Danielle and Joe have great senses of humor and that shows in their work. I love their use of color to make simple designs really pop and feel special.
