“Wrapping” things up for NSS!

We are just one week away from the first day of of National Stationery Show, the nation’s largest stationery show – a four-day event filled with lovely goodies. 6.25 is attending this year as an exhibitor (Booth #1677), a buyer (for our store in Grand Rapids) and blogger (for Neenah Paper’s blog). I do wish I had more time to walk this show, but my  priority will be at our booth, showcasing the new items that I am SO excited to debut.

I’ve been busy putting the final touches on our new wedding album, working with printers on new types of product like mini notebooks and giftwrap, designing and preparing the booth and creating a comprehensive 36-page catalog (our first real catalog!).

I’ve attended this show before many times as Media with Stationery Trends
and once as an exhibitor, but never have I ever felt so polished, ready and nervous
as I do this year! We have worked so diligently to make this a great year for 6.25,
but it will all come down to those four days… wish us luck!

Here’s a sketch of our booth…

Let us know if you are interested in our wholesale line or wedding album
but cannot attend the show this year, I will happily mail you the catalog!

Welcome Marcus – Florals Abound

I realize the last post also welcomed a floral-inspired wedding invitation, but I was finding so many great images on Pinterest for our lovely Marcus that I couldn’t help but continue the theme!

Marcus is very playful, so playful that it could even be a birthday or bar mitzvah invite. I struggled with whether or not this would be a keeper in the new album, but after playing with the colors and imagining ALL the possible variations (Marcus utilizes 6 ink colors!), I feel like this will be great design for many brides. Flowers are a huge part of the wedding day, and if you have a love for floral, this would be a perfect fit!
