Don’t write handwriting off yet!

Posted on 28th March, 2014

GetBritainWriting_2lineWriting by hand is becoming fashionable, and stationery and pens have never looked so good.

A coincidence? I don’t think so.

You don’t need to look any further than next week’s London Stationery Show which is the biggest so far, to see just how visual and tempting stationery has become.  It’s no wonder so many people say they love it.DGP_Stationery_103

The stationery market today is driven as much by colour and fashion as it is by need and function.  National Stationery Week’s Get Britain Writing and Get Kids Writing campaigns and a long list of retailers as well as the Post Office – not to mention branded London taxis – will be driving the message home next week to consumers and the media that writing and being able to write matters, if anything more than ever in a digital age.  And of course that you can never have too much stationery!
