• National Stationery Week announces first sponsor

        • National Stationery Week’s first official sponsor has been named as Marple Stationery Supplies, a company renewing its support for the annual campaign.

          The independent Cheshire retailer returns to champion ‘Stationery Shop Saturday’, the themed day which encourages retailers of all sizes to open their doors to consumers and promote their stationery ranges. 

          Alongside their role in the ‘Seven Days of Stationery’, Marple Stationery Supplies will be the first brand to play a key part in the tenth National Stationery Week and pushing the ‘Writing Matters’ message to stationery addicts worldwide.

          Sarah Laker, owner of Marple Stationery Supplies said, “I've been a supporter of National Stationery Week and its #WritingMatters message since the beginning. I believe it's the perfect time to shout about our love, and knowledge, of stationery and the importance of putting pen, or pencil, to paper. 

          “I'm proud to be the figurehead for #StationeryShopSaturday once again and hope to bring together more independent retails store to celebrate their individuality and love of stationery.

          “Last year I took on the challenge of leading #StationeryShopSaturday and it grew bigger than I ever expected, becoming a national hit with retailers of all sizes. It was great to see independent stationers around the country shouting about everything they have to offer - their uniqueness, knowledge, personal service and diversity of products. I can’t wait to do the same again – but bigger.”

          Marple Stationers has just celebrated 14 years as a stationery retailer and is keen to get as many independent retailers to get involved. 

          During, and in the run up to, last year’s National Stationery Week, Sarah saw an increase in footfall to her shop and a direct impact on sales – thanks largely to her involvement in the annual event.

          The 2020 National Stationery Week campaign will see the creation of a new POS pack that will be printed and supplied to all retailers who sign up, containing handy hints and tips on how to make the most of the campaign.
