2013 National Stationery Show Favorite

Moglea_Logo 2

Each year, I’ve been selecting one brand to highlight as “best in show” from the National Stationery Show in NYC. Which is actually no small feat; the caliber of new talent is pretty extraordinary out there. (I’ll be featuring lots of it over the next few weeks!) This year, my selection is Moglea, a letterpress studio in rural Iowa run, 67 miles from the nearest Starbucks. (Egad… That boggles the mind. I have one on the main floor of my office building and sometimes that seems inconveniently distant.) Designer Meg Gleason started the company a few years ago by offering custom stationery, and just last year launched her first retail line. Her eye for typography, playful handwritten text and sophisticated yet whimsical design sense make for a really fresh perspective. (Apologies in advance: I don’t have great photos of her newest stuff – the stuff I fell head over heals with – just my dark & blurry hurried camera shots. Yes, I could have waited to get fab pics, but I was just too anxious to post this! Keep checking her Etsy shop; they’ll be available soon!)
