2012 National Stationery Show: Day 3 Recap

While the National Stationery Show is certainly a time for us to show off our new collections as well as old favorites, we also love admiring the wonderfully creative work of our peers and — since they come from all over the world — meeting them in person.

Which is why we were thrilled take part in the 8th Annual Paper Party, which was generously hosted by Oh So Beautiful Paper and Delphine Press.

The party is a chance for stationers, designers, press operators and press to mingle, sip & nibble, and — of course — talk paper. The party was a-hoppin, so unfortunately we couldn’t speak with everyone, but we did get to chat with the lovely folks from The Happy Envelope, Southern Living, Stationery HQ and Mr. Boddington’s Studio.

We must say, it’s quite fun exchanging ooh’s & ahh’s over business cards, sharing favorite design finds from the day and now having a stationery stop in pretty much every city we’ve ever wanted to visit. And what else is fun?

Receiving the Best. Gift Bag. Ever. (We saved the Crane & Co. goodies for the other guests.)
