so inspiring: national stationery show {part two}

we have more eye candy to share! part two of our national stationery show experience is here with more of our favorite stationers. we also had the opportunity to attend a paneled lecture titled top bloggers talk stationery trends moderated by miss sarah schwartz, founding editor of stationery trends. we had the privilege to listen to our paper idols, nole garey, founder of oh so beautiful paper; kristen magee, editor of paper crave; suann song, designer and printer for simple song design and proprietor of fifteen/eleven; lyndsey wells, editor of the stationery place. they shared some valuable tips as they discussed the latest pattern, color, and hand lettering trends. we ended our day purchasing a stock of pretty patterned boxes from smock for our invitation deliveries. we can’t wait for nss 2013!

so inspired: national stationery show {part one}

special wednesday edition of inspiration here! we walked into the national stationery show for the first time on monday morning bright eyed and eager to be surrounded by the best of the best in the paper world. it was like a dream! there were aisles beyond aisles of displays, overflowing with the most beautiful invitations, notebooks, cards, packaging and prints. letterpress, foil stamping and patterns upon patterns all seem to be the hottest trends. there was so much to take in, but exciting to turn each corner to see another thoughtful booth display. the creative atmosphere also felt very personal as we talked to vendors, artists, and printers that we’ve read about on blogs. we made some meaningful relationships and are looking forward to grow as a company and have our own loveleigh line of goodies someday! here are a few collections from some of our favorite displays and vendors. part two is coming tomorrow!
