The latest suite in our Sneak Peek Series has a fun and unique history. Our Yountville suite was inspired by a board created by one of our favorite bloggers — Kathryn at Snippet & Ink. Initially we fell in love with the colors and preppy style of the board. We found ourselves coming back to it over and over after having it pinned up on the wall in our design studio. She really did nail it! Finally we decided that it was the perfect jumping off point for a full letterpress wedding suite and Yountville was born.

One of the best parts of The National Stationery Show is seeing new and old friends in person. NSS is the one time each year that we can celebrate our love of paper with our friends that feel the same! We wanted to share some more scenes from our booth and a few of the friends we enjoyed catching up with:
Katrina with Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper
The lovely ladies of Parchment Nantucket
Whitney & Samantha of Gus & Ruby Letterpress
Katrina with Xochitl Gonzales of Always a Blogsmaid
Our friends from Hitched
Jacqueline Nwobu & Eronmwon Balogun of Munaluchi Bridal
Katrina with Meredith Zappert of Letterpress Perfect
It was great to see everyone and we’re already looking forward to next year!
