Friday Eye Candy

It's hard to believe that the National Stationery Show is only a few weeks away. Hundreds of Crane stationers from around the world tour the Crane booth and place orders for the coming year. While the sales and marketing staff is busy with customers, Ms. Bliss and I annually host several dozen members of the national media who come to see the latest trends in fine stationery and personal correspondence.

Crane's May introductions are always eagerly anticipated, and this year is no exception. There's even one blockbuster that I can't tell you about yet, but Ms. Bliss and I will be blogging in real time from the show, so make sure to visit the Crane Insider every day from May 17-21 for all the latest.
This week's Friday Eye Candy gives you a sneak peek at four of the new stationery collections from Crane's May introductions that will debut at the show.

The Palazzo Collection adds a touch of European flair to a new line of cards, notes, thank-yous, imprintables and place cards.

Vintage maps and motifs adorn the Cartography Collection.

Bugs are big! Bug notes feature hand-engraved images of a butterfly, lady bug, grasshopper and dragongfly.

And finally, Crane's Dog Notes have been immensely popular for years. This year, you'll see a Golden Retriever, Scotty and a very proud Beagle!
