The National Stationery Show is quickly approaching, and as a paper goods addict, this is a week I look forward to all year long — I can’t wait to see new cards from my favorite stationers! Because it’s a trade show, it’s not open to the general public (boo!), but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of some of my favorite cards and Etsy stationers exhibiting this year.
I’m a huge fan of the ever-growing collection of die cut animal cards from Blackbird Letterpress, but the original bear hug card is my favorite. It’s such a fun and unexpected card with an endless number of uses!
This is one of my all-time favorite greeting cards. Period. I gave it to my husband on our anniversary last year!
As a new parent, this card totally cracks me up!
The combination of neon calligraphy and a blind impression heart makes this card a wonderful way to send your love any time of year.
Kyle from Power & Light Press created these postcards after traveling across the country. Such a great way to send a quick note to a friend or loved one!
I’m always looking for fun and creative ways to send congratulations, and I love the hand-lettering in this card.
I’m all about a classic black-and-white color palette these days, but I’m loving the bright pop of coral ink in these screenprinted cards from The Paper Cub Co.
