National Stationery Week reaches almost 75 million people in 90 countries, celebrating the importance of handwriting and providing an opportunity for stationery fans to share their favourite products.
Maped Helix marketing manager Lianne Fletcher commented: “Get Crafty Day is all about getting hands on with stationery so it’s a natural fit for Maped Helix and our more creative product ranges. In this digital age it’s hard to overestimate the importance of spending quality time away from screens and National Stationery Week is a wonderful celebration of why we should all keep putting pen to paper, so we are proud to be supporting it.”
