Pen and paper here to stay

Posted on 20th April, 2015

Websters fountainpentoppicksnotextDo you know anyone who doesn’t own a pen?  I don’t.   I have at least ten in my home tucked away in kitchen, bedroom and office drawers, and in my briefcase and handbag.  They range from various personalised corporate pens, to a Lamy Logo that my ten year old son uses and a beautiful Yard O Led silver pen that I take to meetings when I want to impress.   I think I can safely say I personally have a pen for pretty much every occasion!

I am not a technophobe – we also have three iPads, four laptops and two smartphones within my small family of three.   I am just a normal working mum, living a pretty average lifestyle.  So this tells me something.   It tells me that despite all the modern day digital paraphernalia that we all own, pen and paper is still a vital part of our lives.

When you need to take a phone message for your spouse or a colleague who’s away from their desk, do you reach for your tablet or pen and paper?   When the boss asks you to check out a few competitor websites, do you reach for your keyboard to make a note of the task?  It’s quite simple really, digital devices are unlikely to replace pen and paper, and thank goodness for that.

Now you may think I am being subjective here, but I have to let on that I have had the privilege of working in the stationery industry for 18 years so I do speak with some knowledge.   Every year, for the last 15 years, I have researched paper usage at a national level while working for the Filofax Group.   Every year my studies showed that over half the adult population in the UK use a notebook and pen.

I know many people, inside and out of the industry, who see their paper notebook and pen as a fashion accessory and replace them with the changing fashions and seasons.   So not only is there a demand, but there’s also the potential for frequency not just associated with replenishment.

I have recently had the pleasure of joining the team at Websters Pen Shop, working with pen retail stalwarts Len and Jacqui Webster (side note: for me Len and Jacqui are like industry royalty).  The breadth and depth of pen choice has surprised me and now I have a professional interest in new products coming to the market, I am also taken aback by the amount of development.  Just this month there’s more than a dozen new pen products due to be launched by the major brands and at least seven from Montblanc alone.

The pen industry is buoyant and I feel very lucky to be able to work in this exciting sector, marketing and selling some of the world’s best known brands on the Webster site www.websterspenshop.com

2015 Stationery Awards Attract Top Industry Judges

Posted on 21st April, 2015

With well over 200 entries to this year’s Stationery Show Awards, the judging panel are going to have to work hard to review all the products put forward by exhibitors.

“Exhibitors should be encouraged by the quality of our Stationery Award judges,” said show director Chris Leonard-Morgan.

“We have Pamela Cartwright, stationery buyer at Paperchase, Joanne Barber, of the Stationery & Gifts Boutique, Bedfordshire, Katy Golden, category manager for stationery & gifts, at WHSmith Direct and Jo Irons, buying director of Bureau Direct confirmed. They, along with independent retail advisor Henri Davis who will chair the judging panel, will review all this year’s Stationery Award entries – so it’s a great opportunity for our exhibitors to ensure their new products get in front of some very influential buyers.”

This year the show has added two categories; Novelty (Up to £10 RRP)) and Licensed Stationery, to reflect the burgeoning number of exhibitors with product in these areas, and amended its Fine Writing Instruments category to ‘Writing Products Over £25’.  The other categories are Everyday Writing Products, Diaries, Organisers and Calendars, Filing and Storage, Notebooks and Journals and Social (paper, envelopes, notecards, invitations).  In addition, the judges usually award their own overall winner for the year.

The entries will be judged on the first day of the London Stationery Show, Tuesday April 28, and the winners announced at the end of that day.

“The Stationery Awards highlight the year’s standout products and they also bring together the show’s new products into one key display – centre stage at the front of the hall.

“All our visitors entering the show can see what’s new in the show, easily review trends and, on the second day, see if they agree with our judges!” says Chris.

The London Stationery Show, which runs at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, on April 28 and 29, has well over 200 stationery brands and suppliers from around the world taking part this year, and is the only UK trade show dedicated to stationery and writing products.

“It’s a great show to visit, not just for our mainstream stationery buyers, but also those for whom stationery adds a colourful, eye-catching pick up line such as visitor attractions and bookshops, and those where a display of high-end writing instruments and gift stationery will complement their main offer, such as retail jewellers, boutique/lifestyle stores and gift shops.

Show essentials for visitors:

Venue:  Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, London N1 0QH

Show opening times:

9.30am – 5pm on Tuesday, April 28
9.30am – 4pm on Wednesday, April 29
