We're only a week away from this year's National Stationery Show! We'll be looking for emergence of trends, that we've been following in other industries, into the stationery and announcement market. We can't wait to see what all of the manufacturers will be bringing to the show this year, not to mention the Louie Awards!
If you're not familiar with the Louie Awards, they are an annual award ceremony in honor of Louis Prang, a Prussian-born immigrant whom became the "father of the American Christmas card" and introduced color lithography to the greeting card industry in the United States [from: The Greeting Card Association]. He helped create a well known card company in Boston that lasted about thirty years after his death in 1909.
More than eight hundred fifty vendors will be there! It's a stationery buyer's paradise!
Hope to see you there!
