Don’t email it, write it!
Writing, and being able to write by hand matters and is as important as ever, even in an increasingly digital world.
There are many reasons for this – it isn’t a question of just using one or the other. Click here to read the A-Z of why writing matters.
According to YouGov research commissioned by National Stationery Week, 94% of adults think that writing by hand is important and 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.
Just as encouraging, 91% of children aged between 8 and 15 think it is important to be able to write by hand and 86% of business managers expect candidates for jobs to be able to write by hand, as well as have keyboard skills.
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.
You can never have too much stationery!
The aim of National Stationery Week is to get people all over the world talking and writing about stationery, and why writing by hand is important. And to send more letters and cards, and not just text or email.
#WorldStationeryDay is 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 leading UK trade exhibition for writing and paper products. It’s where fashion meets function!
