One thing I’ve found with doing my first National Stationery Show as a vendor is that it’s not just the collections, printing, designing, booth purchase that goes into it. There’s the booth design, organization, layout, lighting, SHIPPING (man it’s been a nightmare), filling in the gaps to a collection, putting the puzzle pieces together and more. Since half of my collection has yet to be printed, and I needed to know exactly how many pieces I had and what was going to go where I decided it was time to photograph a dummy layout on the floor. Here’s one of 8 options I’m considering. SOOO much work! Sheesh!
