Last year I got myself on a jet plane and headed over to New York City for the 2014 National Stationery Show. It was exciting and invigorating if not a little overwhelming.
This year I'm enjoying experiencing it from afar via the #NSS2015 Instagram hashtag. My FOMO is tamed by the fact that I've already been, and that I now know how much work it takes not only to walk the show but the stress and effort involved in setting up a booth!
There's a lot to be said for sipping your coffee in the morning while scrolling through the pretty images on Instagram. Here are some of my favorite snaps from the show so far:
I like the ‘Go For It’ attitude of both the notebook and the snap from @paperpanduh
Inspiring image from @tack_and_ward looking outside from within the Javitz Centre.
I’m a sucker for a good constructivist logo like this one from @modcitpress
A snazzy neon sign from @hartfordprints. Nice departure from the usual.
Refreshingly utilitarian keychain tags and pegboard booth from @variouskeytags
An entire line of cards for serious shoe lovers from @penelopespress
Bold advice from @twillandprint
