Get a jump start on your gift wrapping this holiday season!

Join us on Thursday, November 30th from 5pm to 8pm for a gift wrapping workshop. The class is $30 per person and includes gift wrapping supplies for 3 medium sized gifts. You bring ready-to-wrap gifts, and we’ll show you different wrapping techniques (like how to make an invisible seam and cute gift toppers). We’ll also help you find the perfect ribbon pairing for your gifts. The class will be held at our studios at 509 West Fayette Street in Syracuse.

All proceeds from the workshop will be donated to our friends at Onondaga Earth Corps. Light refreshments will be served.

You’ll have the opportunity to stock up on additional gift wrapping essentials during the event as well.

Playful foil stamped holiday cards with colorful envelope liner

We couldn’t think of a better way to get back into the holiday spirit than with these playful foil stamped holiday cards! It’s hard not to smile while looking at those two cuties. Instead of using typical holiday colors, they changed it up by using a varying color palette for an extra touch of festive fun. The Fleming envelope liner pattern was a perfect compliment to the confetti pattern adorning the Collin’s design. We have no doubt this sweet family’s year was filled with nothing but love and laughter!

Botanical foil stamped engagement invitations

An engagement is certainly a cause for celebration and what better way to set the tone for a party than with these botanical foil stamped engagement invitations. We were thrilled to work with Fresh Ink to create this Greely inspired set for Michelle and David. Tawny Matte has never looked better as the foil color enhances our Smock Gray paper with its champagne undertones. A sweet floral motif frames the couple’s monogram at the top of the design, while the gold leaf metallic envelope liner adds a polished finish to this lovely customization.

Sweetly sophisticated bronze foil wedding invitations

Sarah and Brett’s wedding was held at The Villa at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. These bronze foil wedding invitations were the perfect first impression of what their big day would hold that coming June. With the bride and groom’s name first and foremost on the page dressed in a modern, free-flowing font, it’s easy to see that this wedding will be a sweet yet sophisticated affair. When their guests turn over the invitation, they will find a botanical pattern repeated in bronze shine adding a subtle wow factor. To give the suite a pop of color, our sage ink added another level of appeal to the reply and welcome party cards. The envelope liner was also printed in sage carrying a complementary leaf pattern as the finishing touch.

Each year at NSS we introduce a variety of new products for both our everyday and custom lines, and highlights for this year include a new wedding album, lots of new cards, gift wrap, keepsake boxes, and 2017 calendars.
