For a self proclaimed stationery addict, the National stationery show is one stop destination to get an all time high on glittering new product lines from the very best of the best in the industry.
NSS has been showcasing paper and paper related products for over 70 years. It provides a perfect launchpad for new products from well established paper businesses and gives a cheery high five to new businesses that display fresh talent.
This year added yet another excellent chapter to the previous years display. The atmosphere was abuzz with creative people and their lovely creations.
Customization is the key to win the hearts of planner lovers and it came in all forms. From monograming Leather TNs, tags, spiral notebooks to creating personalized stamps for businesses or just to add an extra touch to your daily art inspired life.
What is consistent every year is the fact that even the small businesses get an excellent exposure.
American Crafts brought with them the amazing Kelly Roberts who did calligraphy for anyone who stopped by.
Who can ever get bored of florals; that too, painted in gouache, watercolor and acrylics?
A surprise that I particularly loved was Ted Baker launching their very own stationery line in their statement blush pink and rose gold.
A bit of a fan moment for me at the Kikki K booth where I got to meet Kristina Karlson.
There was never ending fun at the stationery show.
These were but a small glimpse of what happened in 3 days at Jarvits Centre, New York City, May 20-23, 2018. If you would like to know more in depth about the product line ups that stole the show then please do subscribe to my blog and await the next installment in this series.
Thanks for stopping by.
