Paper Trends for 2011


The National Stationery Show (NSS) is an annual event hosted in New York City that paper and trend seekers love! This is a trade show, which means it’s closed to the public, until now. Consider this your press pass to look inside the NSS and see some of Creating Keepsakes magazine’s favorite show finds and trends this year.

Creating Keepsakes Creative Editor, Megan Hoeppner shares her favorite trends from the show.
