Spark at The National Stationery Show


The organized sister and the creative sister arrived in NYC Friday to set up for The National Stationery show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Pictured above is our booth 1756. We've had a great time so far. It's fun to be back at the show and can't wait for it to start tomorrow. It will be wonderful to meet new and familiar faces. There are so many designers and retailers we are excited to meet over the next few days.

Spark 2010 Custom Album

It is hard to be here at the office today and not setting up for the National Stationery Show in NYC. We made the decision not to attend this year and instead hunker down to plan for our Spark album due out early next year. This was a hard decision for us as we love the energy and enthusiasm that embodies the NSS.

National Stationery Show Prep

Spark is lucky to be working with many talented designers as they prep for the National Stationery Show in May. While we are already starting to get designs in from all over to print, don't panic yet! There is definitely still plenty of time to get into our pre-show schedule.

Here are a few things that I look for when trying to find economies in a print run:
  • same size so we can do final trims and press scores at the same time
  • overall quantity
  • use of the same stocks or a few stocks across many pieces
  • use of the same colors or a limited color palette across several pieces so we can run different pieces on the same day instead of inking up several times with several colors
  • heavy coverage often means double-inking the rollers or needing to be run on our larger press which will add to the cost
