National Stationery Week: 31st March - 6th April 2014
National Stationery Week is all about celebrating the vast array of wonderful pens, pencils, notebooks, and other stationery products available in the UK, wich is certainly something we can get behind. With almost 12,000 products, we probably have the widest range of pens and pencils on this planet, sourced from all over the world. National Stationery Week gives us stationery addicts event more opportunity to share our passion with the non-converts among us. For those who work in the stationery business, don't forget to check out the London Stationery Show, on 1st and 2nd April, the only UK show dedicated to all things stationery!
This year's National Stationery Week is not only a celebration of all things stationery, but is aiming to Get Britain Writing. With the advent of modern technology, it's important that we don't lost the art of the hand-written word, especially amongst the younger generations. In fact, the government has recently decided it would be a good idea to reintroduce handwriting and letter writing into the national curriculum for secondary schools from September.
You've got to admit, an e-card (if you've ever received one), just isn't the same as a hand-written card or letter that lands on your doorstep... So why not send someone a letter, and ge those inky creative juices flowing out onto the paper!
