photos from the show (top to bottom): our finished booth, new notepads, calendars, coaster sets, one of our new holiday cards with gold foil printing, and photos from setting up (it's a mad house in there until the show opens).. our aisle, my mom painting (mom's are the best), and Nathan & Bethany setting up furniture
Soo, the madness that is the National Stationery Show is finally over. It was actually a lot of fun but I am honestly a little relieved because I went a bit crazy the weeks before the show creating a slew of new designs and products and my mind needs a little creative break. It was a blur of late nights, coffee binges, and all-nighters but I'm so excited for all of the new items we'll have a available soon (some should be in the shop as early as this week).
As for the show itself, it was so fun to be there for the second time. We knew more about what to expect and the nervousness of being there for the first time was gone. It was also so fun to be able to chat with so many people I only know through the internet and some of you awesome readers of this blog. Huge thanks to those of you who were there and said hello!
Above are a few photos from our booth. I just realized that I didn't take as many photos as I thought I did but it gives you a glimpse of our setup and some of our new goods. My approach to our booth design is clean & simple to let the products stand out but I was highly impressed by some other booths who had crazy things like windows and bikes make out of foamcore.
If you have any questions about the show or our new goods feel free to ask in the comments..
