National Stationery Week takes place in April from the 20th-26th. It is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery. The goal is to get more people putting pen to paper, writing by hand more often, and spelling stationery correctly with an ‘e’!
The truth is, technology has merely distracted us from the joy and importance of writing, but it hasn’t replaced it. In fact, according to YouGov research commissioned by National Stationery Week, 92% of adults think that writing by hand is important and 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.
There is still something special about stationery and receiving a handwritten letter or card and handwritten stationery is regaining its popularity, especially with the rise of hand lettering and calligraphy. On the 29th April, the UK will celebrate National Stationery Day, a day devoted to pens, pencils, rulers, rubbers, and everything else in between!
