There were lots of lovely stationery brands at the trend show, Top Drawer. My top three favourites were Pleased to Meet, Katy & June and Gellie Design.
Pleased to Meet is the brainchild of Daniel and Marcel Could Hornung. The pair met in the US and when they moved to Berlin in 2004 they started designing first class products locally printed on fine papers and lovingly hand packaged. Their style can be described as retro, with simple aesthetics inspired by their love of American Mid Century Design. On show were bird print cards in pale blue and ochre, woodland themed gift wrap in taupe, and deep blue fish paper. The stationery was beautifully styled on top of wooden crates with vintage typewriters, pops of yellow string and bright red stools.
Katy & June was founded by Katy Lee and June Kim who wanted to bring Korean stationery and gift products to the world! They have selected a broad range of stationery and gifts, like deer printed ringbinders, natural woodland themed gift wrap, and tags and graphic printed notebooks.
Gellie Design is a small greeting card publisher based in High Wycombe which designs and produces beautiful, contemporary and unique greeting cards. Printed and hand finished in the UK they had all occasions covered with cute cards. I loved their mix of prints and use of embellishments with embossed and glittered details.
Have a sweet day!
