After much anticipation, this week is the 2015 National Stationery Show, otherwise known as every paper lover’s paradise. We’re spending the next few days at the Javits Center, scouring the booths for the best new greeting cards, prints, and unique gifts offered by over 800 talented designers and manufacturers.
Every year, the NSS reminds us of the many reasons we savor stationery and paper goods. There are multitudes of approaches to the craft, from cute to sassy to silly, and we adore them all. But today, we’re turning to a particular sort of printed inspiration: the products that use powerful quotes and mantras to urge us to be our best selves. Somehow, certain designers find just the right words (and eye-catching graphics) to say exactly what we need to hear.
