About Me

Hi, I’m Sarah Schwartz, and I’ve been an avowed paper geek for over 20 years now. I first started covering stationery as a market editor at Gifts & Decorative Accessories way back in 1997, and then in 2008, I was lucky enough to become the founding editor of Stationery Trends, an award-winning trade quarterly magazine devoted to all things paper. These days, I’m also Trends Editor at Gift Shop magazine and edit a fun monthly e-blast called The Trend of the Month Club. To gather all that material, I travel to trade shows around the globe to spot emerging trends. I’m also a familiar industry speaker quoted frequently in the media. Not bad for an Ohio native who ventured to NYU! These days, I’m back in Ohio living with my husband, tween daughter, and small dog. Aside from family, what makes me happiest is connecting makers, retailers and stationery lovers — and becoming a part of their story.
