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 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 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 saw the launch of #WorldStationeryDay 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. ¬†It’s much more personal.

National Stationery Week is organised by the London Stationery Show, the leading UK trade exhibition for stationery and writing products.
