Yes, it’s that special time of year again, when Legion Paper announces its special National Stationery Show promotion for confirmed exhibitors. To that end, I have but one request of you: Show Us Your Money!

Yes, money doesn’t grow on trees — but with your help, the aisles of #NSS2017 will be full of it for the taking! Legion Paper, in conjunction with NSS, Parse & Parcel and The Paper Chronicles, invites all confirmed exhibitors to apply to be a part of 2017’s special design project.

To participate in this Project Runway-esque endeavor, all you have to do is design your own currency. Follow your muse to let it reflect your distinctive brand and vibe — and don’t hesitate to incorporate a show promotion (e.g. free freight) into your design — or don’t, it’s up to you. And, please be creative in your planned printing method — we’re envisioning that attendees will stuff a billfold with embossed, letterpressed, screen-printed and foiled money.

This lucrative project will be promoted by Stationery Trends, The Paper Chronicles, Parse & Parcel and NSS to draw traffic to booths as it promotes the spirit of each printer. Those selected will print their bills in their choice of printing methods on their choice of the 3,000+ papers Legion distributes.

To get started, check out this Pinterest board for design inspiration. Then, go through Legion’s amazing paper selector to search their wares to find your perfect match.

The deadline to submit your design concept is January 31. Participation is completely free! So don’t hesitate, and be sure to go here to see more details and apply.


I am so excited to review submissions and see this exciting project come to life. It really is a win-win for everyone involved, and I can’t urge exhibitors enough to apply to be a part of it.

With that said, I’m taking off for sunnier climes and will be back here posting again in 2017. Happy New Year, folks!
