National Stationery Show Recap 2017

by Arianne Foulks

June 1, 2017

The National Stationery Show (the NSS) is a big yearly trade show in New York City that showcases both established and new stationery businesses. It’s “to the trade,” which means that retail sales aren’t being made; it’s for forging and maintaining wholesale relationships only. Today’s post features our National Stationery Show 2017 recap.

We have been honored and delighted the last couple of years to be able to attend as press (see our previous trade show tips and advice here). We love seeing what’s new in the stationery world, getting to meet face-to-face with business owners we support and admire, and meeting readers and members of our Facebook group. One of the biggest delights, though, is seeing our designers’ logo and branding design come to life in the form of a trade show booth.

Here are three Aeolidia-made logos and brand designs (two we recently launched), in booth form:

Casey, in the Casey BarberSHOP booth. Logo by Aeolidia.
The Paula & Waffle Booth. Logo by Aeolidia.
The Frankie & Claude booth. Logo by Aeolidia.

Another cool thing! Three out of the four winners of the 2017 National Stationery Show Best New Product Awards are Aeolidia clients.
