National Stationery Week takes to the airwaves builds awareness

The hugely popular BBC2 Simon Mayo Drive Time programme, Absolute Radio, the Daily Express, The Sun, The Mirror and Metro were among the media players to really get behind National Stationery Week serving to further boost awareness of the stationery-focused celebration among consumers. Letter featuring the National Stationery Week logo have been dropping through doors this week and retailers and suppliers have also played their part in establishing the Week with more than ever before putting weight behind the event that was introduced to coincide with National Stationery Show by the exhibition’s organiser.

It’s been a big success on social media too, with #NationalStationeryWeek trending on Twitter on Monday, #LondonStationeryShow on Tuesday and #WorldStationeryDay on Wednesday.

In keeping with the stationery ‘buzz’, PGBuzz asked a trio of industry folk to reveal their fave stationery items.

Artist Sara Miller, owner, Sara Miller London (whose work is published on cards by The Art File and Portfolio and on giftwrap from Deva Designs):

“There is something about a fresh new notebook that always motivates me to get totally organised. As an avid list writer this would definitely be my number one stationery item… No wonder we designed seven notebooks and pads in our stationery range! This is followed closely by a good pen, I’m a bit old fashioned loving a traditional fountain pen but a fine ball point pen is also a big fave of mine and I make sure I have one in my bag at all times to scribble down any little sketches as an idea pops into my head.”

Adam Blaine, 2016 Stationery Week Blogger of the Year,

Baron Fig Vanguard notebooks: They’re fantastic quality and built to last. They’ve built themselves up to be a really consistently high quality brand, one I love to use daily.

Fisher Space pens: The pressurised ink cartridges in Fisher Space pens make writing with them an absolute dream. I carry one with me constantly because of how reliable they are.

Field Notes 56 week planner: Another paper product I can’t live without is the Field Notes undated planner. It’s the perfect tool to keep me organised, I’ve used it two years in a row alongside digital calendars to manage my time and stay productive. Field Notes is another brand that continually makes high quality paper products.”

Lucy Sticka and Heidi Richardson, directors, Little Paperie, Ashbourne, Derby:

Lamy Safari fountain pen: So gorgeous to write with and we are totally addicted. Really good value for money too.

Rifle Paper Co. Weekly desk planner pad: Great for looking at the week ahead plans and noting things down not to forget. And they are super pretty to look at too!

MT Washi tape: Quite simply I don’t think we could live without it. We use it for almost everything!”
