HOT! journals at NSS 2012

On the heels of last year's remarkably successful recipe card promotion, Flywheel Press has organized a bigger and better project for this year's National Stationery Show.  

Legion has teamed up with 16 stationers who created their own matchbook journal on different fine art papers.  The above journal is from Two Paper Dolls. Collect the full library by visiting each participating booth during the show (see below for the full listing).  Once you've collected all 16, stop by the Legion Paper booth (#2974)  for the box to house the full collection.

National Stationery Show - Days Two and Thr...never mind

We were all set to post some photos and reviews and shout outs and all of that...and then we read the six-part recap on Oh So Beautiful Paper and figured we'd never do as good as job as Nole did.  Carry on and pay them a visit.

We'd just like to say it was fantastic meeting so many of you - nearly 90 of our customers were there!  We saw amazing work by far too many talented people to list here all at once.  We saw old friends and made a whole bunch of new ones.  We had some great meals and lots of drinks and are looking forward to seeing you all again soon.


National Stationery Show - Day One

As we finally kick off our shoes and relax after day one, we realized three things: 

  1. We're overwhelmed by (and grateful for) how many of you came by our booth (#1574) to say hi and see what's new
  2. We didn't get a chance to walk around nearly as much as we hoped.  There's always tomorrow.
  3. The Recipe Card project had a big buzz around the show.  We can't thank Amber Ellis-Seguine of Flywheel Press and Marc Schotland (Legion Paper Director of Marketing) enough for putting it all together, not to mention the other 14 ridiculously talented printers who contributed their work.

We did manage to make it one or two full aisles so far.  Among others, we saw amazing work by some of the Recipe Project contributors. Check it out:

What's Cookin'

We're proud of our collaboration with 15 letterpress printers and designers on a project to promote the art of letterpress printing.  We hand-selected a different paper for each printer who was on their own to design and print a recipe card to be part of a set that can be collected at the show.  Amber Ellis-Seguine of Flywheel Press was the mastermind behind this project and, somehow, made it all happen in time for the show.

The cards were all amazing.  We were totally blown away and we're sure you will be too.
