The Power of the Written Word
Writing, and being able to write by hand matters and is as important as ever, even in an increasingly digital world.
It isn’t a question of just using one or the other.
According to YouGov research commissioned by National Stationery Week, 92% of adults think that writing by hand is important and 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.
National Stationery Week celebrates the written word and all things stationery – the products which make it all possible, and give pleasure to so many people.
2015 marked the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, and is a reminder of how handwriting has stood the test of time.
It also saw the launch of #WorldStationeryDayÂ in 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. Â It’s much more personal.
National Stationery Week is organised by the London Stationery Show, the UK event for all things stationery.
