Back in May, I shared a little bit about the collaboration between artist Dolan Geiman and Night Owl Paper Goods as they were launching their new collection at the National Stationary Show. You can check out that post here. Well, now the items are all available online and I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites. You can view the whole unique collection on Night Owl Paper Goods website.

This week my good friends over at Night Owl Paper Goods shared with me a new collection they are offering and its really is something beautiful. They teamed up with mixed media artist, Dolan Geiman, and created a truly unique collection of paper goods, wood calendars, and notebooks. It makes sense that these two would collaborate since the earth and nature are on top of both their inspiration lists. With a passion for the environment, as well as floral and fauna motifs and modern-yet-folksy style, you can see how they can easily create a magical line of products together.
Geiman’s work is highly influenced by the outdoors and mixed with southern style, which is clearly shown through his folk creations. He is a trained artist in printmaking and sculpture and has a wide range of mediums from painting and collage to 3-D assemblage. You might have seen his work featured in various media like Fossil, Anthropologie, Pendleton and more. He is an advocate for green design and business and currently works in Chicago with his wife but was born and raised in Virginia. I highly recommend you check out his work, its beautiful.
The big debut was this week at the National Stationary Show in NYC from May 18 to today and I am sure it was a big hit. Here is a little peek into the collection. Enjoy!
I know Christmas in a few months away but there is no better time than now to start getting your lists in order for holiday cards this season. It’s always a good idea to shop around and see if shops are having sales, which a lot actually do around this time. One in particular, Night Owl Paper Goods, is not only having a great sale but also introduced their new personalized holiday card collection.
If you are one for sending unique cards to your loved ones and friends, then Night Owl Paper Goods is a great place to start. All their items are really beautifully made and there is such a variety of styles to choose from. All the wood items are printed on eco-friendly, sustainably-harvested birch wood and if you have a smaller budget, no problem, their paper option is easy on the wallet.
The new holiday collection is truly stunning, if you ask me. All give you the option of wood and paper and with the personalization, you can truly make them reflect you and your family. There are countless front options including photo, multi-photo, and text-only, as well as 11 different back options. For a super fun way to send your greeting this year, go with their speciality-shape ornament cards which come in a variety of styles.
The Night Owl Paper Goods team are professional graphic designers who love their customers, so working with them is sure to be a hoot. Another thing I love about this company, everything is handmade here in the USA. Created in 2004, the boutique stationary company has been doing a great job at combining unique modern/folksy designs with sustainable methods. Here are a few of my favorites from their new holiday collection:
