We’re packing our bags and getting ready to head to New York once again for the National Stationery Show. We’re super excited to catch up with old friends, favorite designers, customers, editors, and everyone else we’ll see in NY. This new release is one of our biggest yet and we can’t wait to unveil it to the world. Fingers crossed everyone else will like it as much as we do! We’ll be sure to take lots of photos and share all the goodness we see at NSS with you here on the blog.

                                                                                                                                                             

If you’ll be at the show please come by and say hello, we’d love to see you!

 

A late summer wedding in Montauk, NY is just about as close to bliss as one can get. The warm days, cooler nights, salty air and bright colors make up a pretty perfect setting, and the real wedding of Anne and Chris shows us just how perfect it really was. The wedding, featured on Cappy Hotchkiss Photography, is dubbed “J.Crew I do” because the party is head-to-toe in the popular brand. It fits just right for these nautical nuptials, so we give props to the young couple for their killer style.

Have you ever seen a better looking bridal party? White weddings are classic but those colorful shoes definitely make a statement. Anne and Chris chose our Big Day wedding invitation customized with a heart and their initials at the top. Our favorite part has to be the dress suggestion at the bottom: Dress Sharp.

Each table included some handmade details, along with bright and beautiful bouquets by Flowers by Beth.

Our Big Day menus and table signs complimented the decor nicely.

Sparklers are always a nice touch when bidding adieu to the newlyweds. Congratulations to Anne and Chris! For more photos, visit Cappy Hotchkiss Photography.

We were thrilled to receive photos from friend and collaborator Julia’s recent wedding, beautifully shot by Jennifer Causey.  Julia and Mathew were married at The Oaks on Long Island, a beautiful estate on the water.

The classic green and white color scheme was carried throughout. We love that Julia bucked tradition and had her bridesmaids select their own dresses in various shades of green.

The wedding was full of handcrafted details featuring Julia’s illustrations, of course!

Julia herself looked radiantly happy in a dress from David’s Bridal and a hairpiece from ban.do.

We happened upon Paper Dragon Books on our way to the gift show. Intrigued by their antique book presses, we invited ourselves into their studio. Owner Gavin Dovey was kind enough to show us some of the projects that he was working on, including these stunning handmade boxes made to look like classic leatherbound books:

Paper Dragon hosts classes at their Chelsea studio, as well as creating their gorgeous custom work. We loved their airy studio filled with tools, buttery swatches of leather and a vintage guillotine paper cutter:
