National Stationery Week Set To Emphasise The Importance of Handwriting

National Stationery Week aims to get everyone talking and writing about stationery and intends to emphasise the importance of writing by hand, in the form of letters and cards, rather than by text or email.

YouGov has conducted some research on behalf of National Stationery Week into the importance of handwriting.

  • 92% of adults believe writing by hand is important
  • 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.

London Stationery Show Will Urge Visitors To Take The #StationeryChallenge

The London Stationery Show will be taking place on 26-27th April at the Business Design Centre in London. With 70 new exhibitors joining 80 returning ones, organisers of the show are confident that buyers will be greeted by an array of new products and suppliers.

As part of the social media campaign to support the event they are asking buyers to take the #StationeryChallenge, that is to NOT find at least one great new product at the show. There will also be plenty of #StationerySurprises and #StationerySpecials from exhibitors with product launches and special show promotions.

Top industry buyers including Lisa Rutherford, stationery buyer for John Lewis, will be judging the 2016 Stationery Awards, now in their sixth year.

“The Award entries and their central display as visitors enter the London Stationery Show are a vital element of the show and an important reason to visit and exhibit,” said exhibition director Chris Leonard-Morgan.  “It is a fantastic opportunity for retail buyers to see so many stationery product launches in one place at one time, and a great way to get a speedy overview of what the market has to offer!”
