I cannot believe how close National Stationery Show is! A week from now it will be winding down — but in the meantime I think many of us are grappling with a whole lot of anticipation. To quell it, first up today I’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at new releases from Wild Ink Press.
This is Rebekah’s sixth year exhibiting, and she’s been busy, releasing over 20 new designs this summer — 60 since last year’s NSS! — including single cards, boxed notes, notebooks, journals, art prints, home goods, coasters and a special 2017 collaborative calendar. (Wild Ink is also nominated for two LOUIE Awards, and based on this judge’s score at least, I think its chances are pretty good!)
One of Wild Ink Press’ intros is The Menagerie Collection, a sophisticated foil-printed range of animal boxed notes, coasters and notebooks. Printed in Rebekah’s Chico studio on 100% recycled cardstock, with 100% recycled chipboard for the coasters and notebook covers, they are the perfect combination of wild meets eco and chic.
Ooh, love these wildly posh prints (and especially the directive to “find adventure” on that cute copper-foiled notepad)! Check these out in Booth 2151 along with other releases like DIY kid coloring cards.
Graphique de France has been in biz for over 40 years, but you’d never know that looking at their fresh releases. New at NSS are Tumblers & Pencil Cases. The 22-oz. Tumblers in six designs are double walled and accessorized with colorful straws. They’re also BPA, Phthalate, & Lead Free.
The Pencil Cases, in six designs, are made of thick cotton canvas, with colored zippers and lined on the inside. There’s also new cocktail napkins, file folders, and cards galore — including a new personalized greeting card program for wholesalers. Rain or shine, these lively designs put some spring in anyone’s step!
Check it all out at Graphique De France, Booth #2326. They’re also holding a free raffle for a chance to win one of two Designer Stationery Gift Sets, which contain 6-7 coordinating stationery pieces including journals, notepads, pens, card sets, & clipboards. The first 50 people to register will walk away with a Fashion Your Life tote bag containing over $15 worth of stationery inside!
