The National Stationery Show, which took place this week at New York City's cavernous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, was a sea of green, with a barrage of eco-friendly paper goodies that were virtually indistinguishable in style and quality from their virgin-paper compatriots. Terms like "FSC-certified" and "post-consumer" were tossed around with aplomb, letterpress flats were lovingly fondled, and the swathe of planet-friendly options was almost pornographic in scope.

Here, a selection of 16 of our favorites—we had a really tough time whittling our choices down!—for occasions when digital forms of expression are poor surrogates for the tactile and handwritten word.
