National Stationery Week – #1
National stationery week this year runs from 23rd – 29th April.
The aim of the campaign and Writing Matters is to encourage people to celebrate writing by hand and in doing so interact with stationers to find out what the latest products are. Last year was a great success with 74.5 million people hearing about it from all different sorts of mediums.
So in this day and age of hi tech gadgets, why would you want to pick up your pen, pencil or even crayon? Over the next couple of weeks we are going to explore the benefits.
1 – writing by hand gives you a feel of joy and creativity. When you get a new pen what do you do? You pick it up and give it a test run – writing notes, doodling and even playing with your own handwriting.
2 –writing by hand can calm the brain. Think of the benefit of sitting down pen and paper in hand to transfer your thoughts – without the distraction of social media, iphone or other mobile devices.
