Week of celebrating Why Writing Matters returns on Monday for seventh year


NATIONAL Stationery Week is back for its seventh year with a fun paper or writing product allocated to each of the seven days between this coming Monday and next Sunday April 23-29.

Celebrating stationery in all its forms and uses, and encouraging everyone to write more by hand, leading brands Nuco, Staedtler, Mustard, Santoro, Crafter’s Companion and AT Cross are joining London Stationery Show in managing one of the days each.
Each company is taking a different day and setting challenges and competitions for stationery fans to join in with – they will be encouraged to share their own projects and ideas, and to take part in competitions throughout the week to win lots of goodies. The days are:
Monday #makeanote – Nuco
Tuesday #penandpencil – Staedtler
Wednesday #stationerytheworldover – London Stationery Show
Thursday #workhappy – Mustard
Friday #placeforeverything – Santoro
Saturday #getcrafty – Crafter’s Companion
Sunday #signaturesunday – AT Cross

Retail support for the week has already been pledged by Ryman, Kikki-K, Monsoon, Fedrigoni, The Pen Company, Paper Tiger, Got2Jot, Noted In Style, Office Outlet, Martha Brook, Chroma Stationery, Herts FullStop, Ampersans, Mulberry Bush and Early Years Resources.
Retailers considering joining in should visit and complete the Retailer Sign Up form on the Get Involved page.
Suppliers have also pledged their support and received the campaign artwork to run their own activities throughout the week – they include Stone Marketing, Gorilla Glue, Abrams & Chronicle, Boxclever Press, Maped Helix, Bostik, Pyramid International, Sparkfold, Sinclairs Products, Rhino Stationery, Otima, Little Lamb Design, Noteshel, Mohawk Paper, DKL, ExaClair, NPW.
The design team at Mustard devised and produced all this year’s key campaign visuals, G.F Smith created bespoke goodie boxes in the campaign colours to send out to top consumer journalists and bloggers asking them to support the campaign, and Wren Press have created a campaign poster for retailers to order.
All retailers and suppliers can request the campaign artwork and a copy of the campaign’s A-Z of Why Writing Matters to help spark ideas or challenges to run in their own stores, and the National Stationery Week team are available to help source expert opinion, graphologists and recommend stationery suppliers to help with competition prizes.
