National Stationery Week 2018

National Stationery Week 2018




Here at Gifts from Handpicked we love our stationery. We love all the designs from the different suppliers we stock, and how each item is so unique and beautifully designed to attract their audience. Take a look at our most popular stationery suppliers from The Artfile, Busy B, Rachel Ellen and Jodds range.



The Artfile

The Artfile is one of our best sellers at Christmas. With a wide range of address and birthday books, perfect for gifts or for yourself. We just love how these keep everything together in one place. Beautifully created by their talented in-house design team, along with some highly skilled freelance designers, their products have won numerous awards along the years.  The owners dog Frank is featured amongst many of their products, as you can see in our photo the classic purple design with the dog is just stunning.

The Artfile believe passionately that they should produce as many of their products in the UK they are able to. They use the finest materials and the latest printing techniques available to create beautiful cards and stationery which have a true quality and uniqueness to them. This is shown through the gorgeous finish on their products. We love their pen set and pencil case, such a lovely duo!

Busy B

Another large collection we stock comes from the gorgeous Busy B range. Starting in the spare room of her Edinburgh flat, K Two was born. In early 2014 they transformed K TWO into the new brand, Busy B, redesigning their old favourites, adding brilliant new products, and creating a gorgeous Baby B and Bride to B collections.

Their bride collection is one of our, here at Gifts from Handpicked’ s, biggest sellers. Our wedding planners are no quicker on the shelves than off, packed in lovely parcels and shipped all over the world. I’m sure there are many brides out there that have planned their big day in one of our Busy B wedding to do books. What a lovely thought.

Their award-winning products now line the shelves in loads of brilliant shops and some of the UK’s high-profile retailers; including John Lewis, Lakeland and Hobby craft.

Rachel Ellen

One of our favourites for the children… not forgetting the adults. Rachel Ellen was previously a professional ballet dancer who started her company hand painting cards from the kitchen table in her London apartment.  Rachel Ellen Designs are one of the leading stationery and greetings card designers in the UK. Rachel's hand drawn characters have become instantly recognizable, and her charming style coupled with a top quality product means that Rachel Ellen has become a highly regarded Children's brand.

We stock a wide range of her children’s writing sets, colouring books, children’s tin and bedroom accessories. We also love Rachel Ellen’s weekly planner in rose gold, it’s a really popular item here at Gifts from Handpicked. We love the gold detailing on this book, along with her duck egg blue wedding planner in the same range.

Another pretty set of stationery we stock is the Jodds range. With their huge range of jotter pads, tear off weekly planners and sticky notes you can never have enough reminders. With magnetic pads for the fridge and planners big enough for the whole family to have their plans on, we love how helpful these can be. Here at Gifts from Handpicked we use these weekly planners at work and home to keep everything organised, even plan the meals for the week.

Jodd’s have been publishing innovative design-led stationery and greetings cards since 1988. They use the highest quality boards and the latest finishing techniques to create beautiful products.
