Get ready for National Stationery Week 24th April- 30th April 2017

When was the last time you wrote a letter to a friend? Or scribbled down a short story for fun? In this world of tech, we believe that writing matters. 

Why not get involved in National Stationery Week. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Instead of status updates, write a letter to a friend or relative to tell them what you’ve been up too
  • If you’re out and about, buy a postcard and send it to a loved one
  • Rather than buying a birthday card, why not get crafty and make one
  • Challenge yourself and write a short story
  • Try your hand at some modern calligraphy
  • Treat yourself to a new pen or notebook and keep a diary


Each of our 150-plus UK stores carries a stock of everyday stationery items, beloved of our student, small business and personal customers, who know they can rely on us for the things they need.  

If it’s not already in-store, we can order just about any item of stationery or office supplies equipment for next day delivery in many cases.  So whatever you need, you know you can come to us to indulge your passion for stationery and equip your home or office with all the right gear.
