Express yourself: why children will always love stationery

Posted on 25th September 2015 by Alex Miles


Four years ago I visited a remote part of Vietnam. At the time I was working for Paperchase and I took a selection of colourful pens and pencils with me to give to the village children. Within seconds I was surrounded by children of all ages all wanting their very own pen or pencil. It was only after the boys started to play fight with the pencils, that I realised that they had absolutely no idea what they were. You see we live in a country where we can buy 20 pens for £1 and every year over the Back to School promotional period retailers bombard us with marketing messages and promotions to try to make us buy more stationery. We completely take it for granted that we can write or that our children are being taught to write and use pens and pencils.

Our whole democracy is based on freedoms that date back to the Magna Carta and those freedoms are built on the rights of the individual. Drawing, colouring and writing are important ways that children express their individuality. Have you ever thought about the fact that your signature, your handwriting is unique to you?


I have just finished writing a report about the 2015 Back to School market in the UK. I researched 30 different retailers while writing this report; they all sell stationery.  As consumers we have more choice than ever before as to where to shop and what to buy. Back to School trends this year included neon/ brightly coloured stationery ranges, novelty erasers and bumper packs of colouring pens. A key point I have made in the report is that in the future we will all be omnichannel. As a stationery industry we need to engage with Generation I (post millennial) through different mediums whether that be e-commerce, m-commerce or social commerce. Children may be spending more time in front of phones, tablets and computers, however, let’s not forget that they are still children; still individuals, who want to express themselves with brightly coloured stationery, colouring pens and writing instruments.

What better way is there to show your individuality than by putting pen to paper?

Now in its fifth year, National Stationery Week is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery, and is organised by the London Stationery Show. This year’s event generated millions of pounds worth of media coverage and retail sales, and reached over 20 million consumers with the message that writing by hand is important and has a vital part to play in personal communications in an increasingly digital world.

The theme for 2016 will be “Writing matters”.

Chris Leonard- Morgan, founder of NSW said he was delighted to see sponsors committing early to the 2016 campaign. “To have buy in already from three previous sponsors from the 2015 campaign as well as a new one is hugely encouraging and gets the campaign off to a great start. Each year we embark on a new journey with National Stationery Week and for 2016 we will be focusing on why writing matters”Taxi

Companies interested in becoming a sponsor of National Stationery Week should contact Chris on clm@firstevents.com

This year’s campaign saw a record number of high street and online retailers seize the opportunity to increase footfall and sales with special promotions and activity.

National Stationery Week goes global

National Stationery Week has captured the imagination of stationery users and lovers not just in the UK, but the world over with many saying they wished they had such an event in their own country.

As a result, Wednesday 29 April 2015 – the second day of the London Stationery Show and Day 3  of National Stationery Week – was this year designated World Stationery Day for the first time. Next year it will be on Wednesday 27 April.

The message is the same, wherever you are in the world – writing matters.
