This post is part of an ongoing series of wrap ups from this year's National Stationery Show. Please forgive any discoloration or graininess of the photos (the lighting in the Javits Center stinks!) and check out all the other NSS posts here.
I was drawn to the Semikolon booth for one simple reason: bright, bold color. I have long eyed the beautiful boxes and post its created by Semikolon (on sale everywhere from Barnes & Noble to Container Store), but there was something about seeing them all together in a perfect colorful array that made me want to buy everything immediately. I settled for the little book of colorful page flags (above), but still have my eye on those tiny orange gift boxes and beautiful pen cases. See more here.
Brand Node was a new-to-me booth that also delivered big on the promise of color. I was, of course, swooning over the shelves and shelves of vibrant leather notebooks but was also super stoked to see the little metal gift tags they were selling too. Awesome! Not sure why it took someone so long to transform these museum entrance tags into gift toppers but I am so so happy they did! Learn more about Brand Node here.
