National Stationery Show 2008 – part 1


Okay, so we’re a little behind in posting about our recent jaunt to NYC for the National Stationery Show! We’ve been pretty busy here on Louella Court since wedding season is now in full-swing and we have some cool new projects in the works. Two Paperdolls and Louella Press are constantly undergoing changes and improvements, and the excitement going on around here this time of the year certainly keeps us on our toes!

We’ll tell you about some of our exciting new projects soon, but for now, let’s go back a few weeks to the NSS, shall we?

This was the third show for the ladies of Louella Press, but as the newbie around here it was my first time attending the show as a part of Louella (and actually, my first time altogether). Walking into the Javits Center for the first time was certainly overwhelming. It is so massive! When people told me that it takes days to really be able to walk through the show and see every single booth, they weren’t kidding.

Our friends from Evantine Design made our booth design become a reality. Basically, this is what it looked like on day one of set-up:

After a lot of hard work building and setting up, we were pretty excited with the final result (click on any image to see it full-size):

The bright orange carpet may not have been our first choice had it all been up to us 😉

We love how the bar turned out!

Our engraved Invitation wall shows just a handful of the unique color combinations that our clients came up with over the last year. It’s always a thrill to see how the look of one of our designs completely changes when our clients put their own color twist on things.

The press kit ladies all dressed up and ready to go!

After everything was all set up on Saturday afternoon, Vanessa went to SoHo to do some shopping while Maggie, Rachel, Cat and I went to Dos Caminos to celebrate — with free Margaritas!

Stay tuned for part 2 to see what fabulous (we think so!) new products we introduced at the show this year.
