Deals and Sales for Grads and a Quick Stationery Show Update

With graduation season here, you might be looking for a good gift for the grad that you know, so Ive gathered up some of the sales that have come to my in box.

  • Goldspot Luxury Gifts is offering free standard shipping on any order over $120 and they have a nice section on graduation specific gifts. I’m surprised that they dont list their filofax products in that section, I think a nice organizers like the filofax ones make great gifts for someone getting ready to start their first job out of school.
  • Paradise Pens also has a section on gifts for grads, as well as an offer to get a free 5280 Pen Set with any $100 purchase in store or online.  The in store coupon is here and the online promo code is TWINBLACK, TWINBLUE, or TWINSILVER depending on the color you want.  This deal is only good until May 31st or as long as supplies last.
  • Colorado Pen Direct has a mix of deals on some pens and services (ie. shipping and engraving) but they end today, so check them out here if you are ready to buy anything.

I was really hoping to have a review up today, but I got back from the Stationery Show later than I had expected so I was not able to write something up.  I can say though that I got to meet some great people with some great products that I hope to write up in the coming days and weeks.  Just to quickly name a few, I got to meet Karen from the Quo Vadis Blog, Tom from Goldspot Pens Jac Zagoory, designer of some fantastic pen holders and pens, Sandy (and her dad) from, and many others.

Between the Stationery Show, my own purchases, and some other items that have been generously given to me by some manufacturers, I’ve got no shortage of items to review in the coming days and weeks, so I hope to start getting them up soon.

    Sounds like you’ve got more free swag than I. All that I ended up accumulating was a stack of catalogs in my bag and a sore back from lugging them around NYC. I brought my camera, but with being in a rush to meet all of our vendors, did not take pictures. I hope someone has some shots out there of the booths. A lot of folks there really know how to put together a brilliant display.
    Nice meeting ya, OSG.

    @Tom – I didnt end up actually leaving with anything, just the agreement from some of the vendors that they would be happy to send some stuff my way after the show, when the products are ready. Technically, no merchandise is supposed to leave the show floor.

    Totally know what you mean about lugging the bag full of catalogs around, it took 2 days for my shoulder to stop hurting. It was great to actually meet up with you there though.

    @nrepose – Sorry about the lack of pictures, I was overwhelmed with the volume of catalogs and press kits, and I just kept talking to people and lost track of trying to get pictures.
