national stationery show recap



After many years of drooling from afar, I finally made it to the National Stationery Show! It takes place once a year in NYC, at the incredible Javits Center. I went solo, armed with a list of must-sees, and it was so awesome to meet some of my favorite paper people in person (say that 5 times fast)! I was also lucky enough to attend the fabulous Paper Party, hosted by Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper, and wow – the stationery industry knows how to party. I mean, take a look at the invite! I’m so glad I finally made it to the show, and I hope to return next year, if only to say hello again to my favorites:

  1. I would LOVE to go to the paper party! That invitation is absolutely gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to make it to the stationery show too, perhaps next year!

    • so much fun Sarah – maybe next year we could go together!

  2. A good way to remember how to spell stationery is that “E” stands for envelope!

    • oh my goodness – SO embarrassing Cynthia! thanks for pointing that out – I spelled it correctly elsewhere but not in the most important place – the TITLE! fixed, thank you! ;)

  3. Hi Susan! It was so great to meet you at my first time at NSS! Thanks so much for being so friendly and so excited about my little shop…and of course for featuring me here. I feel very honoured! <3

    • well hello Lisa!! thanks so much for taking the time to comment – it was lovely meeting you, and I’m obsessed with your work. I still haven’t given the kids the drawing books…will share soon! thank you again! :)
