blackbird-headerblackbird-penguinsblackbird-cat3blackbird-seacreaturescardI have been a long time fan of Baton Rouge based Blackbird Letterpress’ distinctive work and am so pleased to see that Kathryn is expanding her die cut cards for the 2015 National Stationery Show. So much of this gorgeous line has an heirloom keepsake feel to it. In fact, I’ve been known to buy some of Blackbird’s cards to simply enjoy as art objects, those sweet new penguins will definitely be joining the ranks there. See all of these beauties and much more in Booth No. 2059!

Ink-Meets-Paper-HeaderIMP-03 - New Birthday CardsIMP-01 - Each Year With You

I had the distinct pleasure of reacquainting myself with Allison and Daniel of INK MEETS PAPER at The Maker’s Summit this March. I’ve always been a fan of their motto, “Text Less. Write More” and love that all of their cards are paired with their exclusive recycled envelopes with a little message under the flap. INK MEETS PAPER is introducing over 20 new greeting card designs this year at NSS. All of their designs are hand-lettered and hand-drawn in their sunny studio in South Carolina. Be sure to check them out in Booth No. 1453!

Sugar-Paper Sugar Paper Gold & Pink Goods | Crow and Canary Blog Sugar Paper Notebooks | Crow and Canary Blog Sugar Paper Holiday Frame | Crow and Canary BlogI can easily get lost in Sugar Paper’s enviable collection most days, but seeing some of their new designs makes me wonder how anyone makes a decision – personally, I want it all! Chelsea and Jamie set out to create a “small release” for NSS this year and ended up adding 88 new products; they are simultaneously amazing, possibly a bit deranged and surely sleep deprived. We can’t wait to fawn over everything in BOOTH No. 1943-1945.

I’m fairly smitten with their gorgeous  constellation calendar, fun that the dates are seperated by astrological signs instead of boring old months. And I’m perpetually a fan of Bison’s collaborations with Karolin Schnoor, quite pleased to see that they’ve joined forces again. View their entire collection in BOOTH No. 1768.

I had the distinct pleasure of connecting with Rosanna of The Iron Curtain Press earlier in the year at Paper Camp in LA. I was fortunate enough to get a peek of the party image up top and I went bananas! How clever is it to design a photo shoot that’s a birthday party for your birthday cards? Such an awesome concept and image. The Iron Curtain Press will be headed to NYC next week for their first Stationery Show, they’ve been in business since 2007, so this is a biggie. Find their delightful goods in BOOTH No. 1679.
