Don’t write handwriting off yet!
Posted on 28th March, 2014
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.
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!
New writing pencils designed for children
Posted on 2nd March, 2015
Write Size is launching a revolutionary new product at next month’s Stationery Show to help children learn and develop writing skills.
The company is challenging the convention that all pencils and pens are approximately the same size and that children are given adult size products with which to learn to write from an early age.
The Write Size range of pencils has been developed through personal experience of watching children struggle to learn to write with tools which are too big for them and are made to the scale of children’s hands resulting in a better grip and more control for the child.
Write Size pencils are designed to encourage good handwriting habits and skills from the beginning.
