After 20 years of helping budding greeting card and stationery designers prepare for the “really big show” in New York, I decided to treat myself and see what all the fuss is about!
I Love Paper!
If you love paper, greeting cards, invitations, wrapping paper and all that goes with it, this show is heaven! Basically, designers set up their booths showing their products so that gift and stationery shop owners can select products to sell in store. www.nationalstationeryshow.com
It’s not all small business – Target had an entourage going through the aisles looking for new designers to help them keep their edge. It was fun to watch the ripple effect as they walked by booths. Large gift and stationery companies had mega booths of course. There are just certain things that caught my eye and renewed my longing to have a retail store so I could buy these products!
