One of the design truisms I came away from National Stationery Show with is that a great vision is that much greater when presented in a series. Just witness this small sampling.

Penelope’s Press makes a bride’s thank-yous for all her service providers simple and stylish with this clever letterpressed range, $5/each.

mira_astermira_aster_2NSS was absolutely awash in prints — each bringing a maker’s vision up in scale. These are just a small sampling of those available from Our Heiday, $25/each.

Finally, not all the series were for sale. This collage in the 1Canoe2 booth perfectly encapsulates the spirit & vision of the brand, not to mention the people who make it what it is. It was one of my favorite spots at the show!
