National Stationery Show Scavenger Hunt Kicks off Tomorrow!

The National Stationery Show begins tomorrow, May 17th. Stop by any of the exhibiting booths for a checklist to begin the search! Once you have successfully visited and collected the designers post cards, head over to the Legion booth (#2774) to stash your cards away and collect the post cards of the participants that couldn't make it to the show this year. 

Greeting from: Lady Pilot Letterpress from North Carolina using Plike, Blackbird Letterpress from Louisiana using Savoy, and Life is Funny Press from Sant Monica using Arturo.

Introducing Marsala- Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone announces the Color of the Year, Marsala, and we have the paper for it. The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors. This sampler contains ten different papers that resemble the naturally robust and earthy wine color.

Silkscreen on Plike

"Battle in Vain" by John DoeWe're big believers that there should be no specific purpose for a paper.  Some watercolor papers are great for drawing.  Some printmaking papers are widely used in invitations.  Even Yupo - a synthetic paper - turns out to be great to watercolor.

So we're always surprised that more artists haven't turned on to Plike.  We saw this seven color screenprint from UK artist John Doe and thought we'd share.
