The Power of the Written Word
Writing by hand, and being able to write by hand, is as important as ever.
It matters, and is one of the cornerstones of how we communicate with one another.
National Stationery Week celebrates the written word and all things stationery – the wonderful products which make it all possible, and give so much pleasure to so many people.
2015 marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, and is a reminder of how well handwriting has stood the test of time.
It also sees the launch of #WorldStationeryDay on 29 April, as part of National Stationery Week.
Let’s get more people putting pen to paper and writing more often – especially children – and send more letters and cards, especially to those we care for, rather than just text or email. It’s much more personal.
National Stationery Week is organised by the London Stationery Show, the UK’s leading trade exhibition for stationery and writing products.
