What is National Stationery Week?

What is National Stationery Week? This week of extra appreciation happens for one week every single year. It brings stationery lovers together, up and down the country. Here at Stamps Direct, it’s very close to our hearts. We of course are big fans and always take part!

National Stationery Week celebrates all things stationery related!


Stamping, and being able to stamp matters. It is as important as ever; even in an increasingly digital world. It isn’t a question of just using one or the other.

According to YouGov research commissioned by National Stationery Week; 92% of adults think that writing by hand is important. 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.

National Stationery Week celebrates the written (and stamped) word and all things stationery – the products which make it all possible and give pleasure to so many people. You can never have too much stationery!

Its aim is to get people all over the world talking; writing, and stamping about stationery, and why stamping by hand is important. We need to send more letters and cards; and not just text or email.

2015 marked the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta and is a reminder of how handwriting has stood the test of time. It also saw the launch of the first #WorldStationeryDay in April, as part of National Stationery Week.

Let’s get more people putting pen to paper and stamp to pad more often; especially children, and send more letters and cards; especially to those we care for, rather than just text or email. It’s much more personal.

National Stationery Week is organised by the London Stationery Show; the leading UK event for writing and paper products.

Keep stamping!
