HELLO THERE!

I’m Sam Kramer - the one-lady operation behind Near Modern Disaster.

While we'd been "in the game" for a while, 2014 marked Near Modern Disaster’s first big push into the wholesale market. We added lots of new designs to the line and we updated some old ones. We started outsourcing printing. We started talking in third person. We made our trade show debut at the National Stationery Show in New York City last May.

We're so excited to have just wrapped up exhibiting at the 2015 NSS. Loads of new retailers will be carrying the line and we couldn't be happier!
