Jilly Jack Designs at NSS 2015

Here is proof that I'm set up and ready for the 2015 National Stationery Show at the Javits Center in New York. I'm sharing two huge booth spaces (92362 & 2363) with 13 other letterpress artists in the Ladies of Letterpress group booth. NSS is such an amazing show. The talent and amazing booths at this show never disappoint. I'm glad I'm not a retailer. It must be so overwhelming. The fun begins Sunday morning and goes on until Wednesday. I'll post more pictures later.

Take care,

NSS 2015 Best New Product Finalist

Our SMALL Collection has been chosen as a finalist in the National Stationery Show's Best New Product Competition for 2015! We are so thrilled to have this card line be recognized as it has special meaning. All these cards were created using vintage metal cuts and lead type from the collection of letterpress items from the late Mr. Small. We love the idea of keeping his collection printing for future generations.

If you're attending the show, please stop by the Ladies of Letterpress booth 2362 to see these little gems in person.

Take care,

All ready for the NSS 2015!

Whew! It's always crazy around here in the month leading up to the National Stationery Show. We shipped our booth items off yesterday and are taking the time today to pick up the studio and relax a little.

This year Jilly Jack Designs will be part of the Ladies of Letterpress group booth. There are a total of 14 letterpress studios that will be exhibiting in this booth. We've been working super hard to prepare for an awesome show. I am so honored to be in this booth with such amazing talent and can't wait to meet them all. They are from all parts of the states as well as a few from different countries. I wish everyone safe travels with no hiccups!

Our new drink recipe series letterpress prints along side our beer lover and cycling letterpress prints. 

A peek at the SMALL Collection and some of the metal cuts that were used to produce the cards.

This year we will be returning to the show with only letterpress work. Our line includes over 25 letterpress art prints and a new line of 4 bar cards, called the SMALL Collection. This collection is a composed of 18 designs that are created with vintage metal cuts and lead type from a collection of letterpress items that we purchased from the late Mr. Small. He was a local hobby printer who also volunteered as the letterpress printer for the Children's Museum in Indianapolis. We are so proud and honored to keep his collection of type and metal cuts printing for future generations.

If you happen to be going to the National Stationery Show, please come see me. I'll be in booth 2362!

Take care,
