[email protected]*Noted 2022 Winners
If you didn’t attend *Noted: The Greeting Card Expo and SF NOW April 28 and 29, be forewarned that reading this piece may just bring on an acute case of FOMO (AKA fear of missing out). Suffice to say, there was definitely magic in the air in San Francisco — and it wasn’t just because Stationery Trends is now the official publication of *Noted.
Being in-person meant that the winners of the third annual [email protected]*Noted Products Awards could be celebrated in person at high noon on the event’s first day. To be eligible to compete, makers had to either exhibit at *Noted or be featured in GCA Marketplace.
“Although the competition is in its third edition, 2022 was the first time winners were announced in person and off a screen,” recalled Sarah Schwartz, editor-in-chief, Stationery Trends. “While *Noted itself enabled our community to experience stationery and greeting cards in person, celebrating these cards and winners in person really brought the artistry of our community into deep focus.”
A stellar team of judges helped determine winners in 10 categories from 145 entries: Audrey Woollen, founder and creative director of Urbanic Paper Boutique; Chandra Greer, owner of GREER Chicago; Chelsea Shukov, co-founder of Sugar Paper; Daniel Collier, danielrichards; and Sarah Schwartz, editor-in-chief of Stationery Trends.
Congratulations to this year’s winners!
