February 2019 Edition

How is it possibly the 3rd week in February already!? January was a busy month for Fold & Seal.

 I travelled to London Olympia for Top Drawer where I caught up with lots of suppliers and acquired some fabulous new stock. It was my first time at this trade show and I loved it! I was like a child in a sweet shop rambling around the Greeting Card and Stationery section. In between some very interesting retail talks I managed to have a quick lunch with a college buddy who has recently established her own custom made lighting business called Spark & Bell, based in Brighton. If you like brass light fittings – check them out! I was a little bit delirious flying back to Dublin but also felt motivated too and excited for the year ahead.

Next I popped into Showcase in the RDS, Dublin where my two favourite suppliers Bold Bunny and Mookie & Boo where exhibiting. I also got to check out Badly Made Books from Cork. Sean is a super talented notebook maker, designer and publisher.

I am excited to announce that soon Fold & Seal will be stocking Irish Pen Designer Ben Walsh. He has designed and produced the most amazing and unique concrete pens that come in a range of colours. If pastels and pens are your thing,

 you are going to love these!

I will have some Pop-Ups coming up soon, so keep an eye out on social media for dates/locations. I understand that it an can be difficult to commit to buy stationery on-line so this will give you an opportunity to see it for yourself. I will also bring along my Printing Press, so if you would like anything personalised just let me know and I will see what I can do 😊
