National Stationery Show

Today was my first day at the National Stationery Show (NSS) in New York City! (That's me standing in front of the NSS sign)

I saw many new trends for 2009 for stationery at the show. One of the hot trends are the scented greeting cards and the green Eco-friendly greeting cards. Also, mostly everybody now-a-days wants to get the best value for their dollar. Greeting card colors are always huge. And some popular include colors such as, purple, orange, and gray. And purple is expected to be the color for 2010, so be looking for purple and lavender hues in Lydia & Pugs designs coming up!

Another trend is patterns, which I absolutely love considering my background is interior design. Old patterns and new patterns, such as 60's prints are coming back as well.

Finally, some other trends popular in the stationery design realm, is animal prints, birds, butterflies, lace, personalized, damasks, silhouettes, and lattice.

While in NYC, I also got to stop by Kate's Paperie, one of the biggest stationery boutiques in New York. It was paper and stationery galore! And they even have cute shopping bags too!

I will post more when I can! Til then good-bye from New York!
