Don’t email it, write it! Get ready for National Stationery Week 24th April- 30th April 2017

Welcome to the home of National Stationery Week, which runs from the 24th April – 30th April 2017!

That doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate stationery all throughout the year. We love everything that you can pick from your pen pot, pull from your pencil case or create on paper.

We believe that ‘Writing matters’ and, although more and more of us are getting into technology, pen and paper can live side by side with stylus and tablet.

Writing, be it a short story, a letter to loved ones or just a personal diary, is important and encourages the imagination to run wild whilst committing your emotions to a sheet of paper.

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.


So, let’s get more people putting pen to paper and writing more often!

Send more letters and cards to loved ones.

Keep a diary of your day to day

Write a story.

There’s so much stationery choice on the high street, you can look stylish, geeky, fashionable, cool and unique meaning that no two pencil cases are the same!
