Kathy Krassner, Caroline Kennedy, May 28, 2013Quality over quantity is the best way to describe this year's National Stationery Show (NSS) held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from May 19-22. The show is large in presentation and variety; it is filled with creative new products from companies large and small, and attended by retailers of all stripes and size, as well as reps and distributors from across the U.S. and beyond. Many exhibitors can be seen at no other trade show in the country in the same breadth and depth presented here.
