For my final post on the NSS, I’m highlighting some favorite finds that are more on the classic side. I really love the timelessness of things like newsprint liners, tasteful fonts, simple line drawings and subtle colors. That being said, everything below is on it’s way in at Urbanic!
For part 2 of my NSS round-up, I’m highlighting how popular gold foiling is this year. I can’t deny that I’m attracted to sparkly things, so it was kinda fun to see it popping up everywhere. Metallics were letterpressed on notecards, coasters, notebooks, incorporated into booth displays, printed on business cards, monogrammed stationery, tote bags, and I even spotted it on someone’s nails. (okay that was a little scary, but the rest was *A-okay).
The NSS this year was amazing. It was a whirlwind for me to get through it all, but I picked up lots of new lines and was excited by the amount of creativity showcased in all of the the booths. (The last picture in this set is of a booth floor turned rainbow with alternating strips of vinyl tape!) In the weeks to follow I’ll be highlighting new product as it’s coming into the shop, but for now I’ll give you a peek into some of the things I saw in my trek around the show. This first round up is all about color. Color trends were easy to spot; ombre, neons, and color blocking to name a few.
