Frances Lab

by Grace Bonney

This year I had to share some of my yearly trade show responsibilities with Max and Amy because I was home watching Hope. She’s got some minor separation anxiety issues so I’m slowly getting her used to being alone for smaller chunks of time. As much as I enjoyed ICFF, I really missed not getting to see the National Stationery Show. It’s usually my favorite show and I always come home with cards I can’t wait to send to friends and family. One of the card companies I’m really into right now is Frances Lab. Run by artist Johnna West, Frances Lab is a Brooklyn-based stationery studio that makes collaged cards, prints and other screen-printed stationery goods. I love the geometric cards, but the simple sayings cards like ‘Howdy’ and ‘Oh, hello’ are super cute, too. Click here to check out Johnna’s debut line and shop online. Prices range from $6- $24 for cards and prints. xo, grace
