Happy National Stationery Week!

This week is a great opportunity to celebrate all things stationery, and perhaps treat yourself to some new stationery. 

Although this week is extremely popular amongst stationery lovers, it is also a great way to engage the public with stationery and to try and get more people to read, write and create.

When you think of stationery, you may believe it is all about boring pens, pencils, rulers and more. What many don't know about stationery is that it involves so much more than that! There are some really unique pieces of stationery out there, to include scrap books, watercolour pens, stamps and more.

In this day and age when it is so easy to pick up your phone and text or call someone, national stationery week is aimed to reinvent the importance of the written word. Whether it is writing a letter to a friend or family member, or applying for jobs using a portfolio. National Stationery week has always tried to include the love and joy of written work, which is why it must be celebrated, we cannot lose the incredible positivity of writing, creating, and using our imagination.
