National Stationery Week

National Stationery Week

National Stationery Week & the London Stationery Show

What was your favourite stationery product as a child?

I had many bits and pieces over the years but my most treasured items were a tiny scented eraser (remember those?) in a little plastic box with a lid and a shiny turquoise pencil with a sparkly gem on the end (I still use this though it’s quite short now after many years of sharpening).

As a child I adored stationery and still do,
so I am immensely excited to be travelling
down to the London Stationery Show today.

London Stationery ShowIt’s going to be a hectic three days building the exhibition stand and sharing our diaries with the trade but I can’t wait to show off our new products. Maybe I will even be able to pilfer a new sparkly gem pencil!

Many pontificate about the death of the paper diary with the widespread use of the smartphone but I think there’s no comparison. You can’t flick easily from week to week to view your plans on a phone – and there’s certainly no weekly recipe sat on the page to inspire you. Amongst many other useful things, our diaries also have a handy pocket to store bits of paper, vouchers and cards – phones don’t have pockets.

Bias aside, I think paper diaries have a valuable place in our stationery repertoire in 2016 and for many years to come. Hurrah for stationery!
