Did you read my article last month at Momtrends.com about stationery trends for 2011? I noticed a bunch of motifs themes at this past Spring’s National Stationery Show. Here are some that you’re likely to spot at stationery stores soon:
Cupcakes are a big hit with people of all ages:
Civic Pride is on the rise! Many stationery designers are finding ways to tout their own hometowns, cities, and states. Love this trend.
International Stamp Sets (not yet available online) by Yellow Owl Workshop.
United States Map Postcard by Sugarcube Press.
Nautical motifs are popular, too….just in time for summer.
Forget planes, trains and automobiles….Bicycles are the way to go now.
Bicycle Gift Wrap (not yet available online) by Smudge Ink.
Bicycle Party Invitation by Smudge Ink.
Robots are rivaling (and even replacing) owls as designers’ favorite pet:
Robot Party Invitations by Hicks Paper.
Robot Thank You Cards Boxed Set ($20 for set of 8) by Dempsey Press.
p.s. For all of you who love stationery, too, I’m going to have a giveaway of assorted notecards and greeting cards (including lots of letterpress) from the National Stationery Show later this month at the blog. Stay tuned.
