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!

DearHancock_MuseumNailsDearHancock_WonderBunnyWrapI’m incredibly jazzed to bring you Dear Hancock’s sneak peek, as it features three distinctive products that they are well known for: great calendars, modern nail wraps and BUNNIES!

Dear Hancock’s desk calendar’s sell out each year and I’m certain that the 2016 updated version of  “The Imagined Desks of Historical Women” will be no exception. They have added some new desks to this version, including Ray Eames, Betsy Ross and Louisa May Alcott. The newest Museum Nails collaboration is such a beauty, designed by Ashley Goldberg (yay PDX designers!), I cannot wait for these to grace my fingertips — perfect spring palette! And last, but most certainly not least, Dear Hancock’s bunny cards have taken on a bit of a cult following, you can now deck your gifts out in either “Wonder Bunny” (shown above) or “Bunny with Maracas” wrap, yippeee! Ogle these and more in Booth No. 2052.

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!
