New York Stationery Show 2016

Written by Nicole Mitsakis

Every May in New York City the National Stationery Show  is there to showcase all things paper.  You will find the latest designs in greeting cards, custom invitations, gift wrap and journals, to lifestyle gifts – and everything in between.  I’ve had the pleasure of attending NSS three times and it never disappoints and always is so much fun.  I was not there this year, but was following via social media to see and read about all the new designers, veteran designers and of course fun new items that you will now see in the market.  I picked a few of what I consider “fabulous finds” and are so excited to share it with all of you.

How fun are these wine tags by Design with Heart Studio, you could use them for the wedding party!

This whimsical wrapping paper from My Mind’s Eye, has some incredible color combinations going on. I recommend checking out their site…there is so much more!

What I love best about NSS is that it’s not just paper, I am over the moon about Spartina 449 there’s not one item on her site I would not want.  Amazing fresh and clean patterns for bags and just about everything else. LOVE that they even have a bag pattern just for us in the Northeast.

Who doesn’t love a unicorn…leave it to Waste Not Paper to come up with this line of course everyone needs a “spirit animal”.

While at the NSS you’ll see tons of inspiration from the designs to the 1000’s of  show booths you can visit.  I feel it’s fitting to end with this “inspiration” from holstee.com…I think we all need to remember what really matters in LIFE.
