Stationery Matters is very excited to reveal the Stationery Awards 2020 winners!


The awards are organised by Stationery Matters and London Stationery Show, recognising good practice and innovation in the stationery sector. 2020 saw the introduction of new regional Retailer Awards and a Rising Star Award to run alongside the Product Awards, and over 350 entries were received.


The awards were judged by a host of industry experts including senior stationery buyers from WH Smith, John Lewis & Partners and the National Trust to name just a few. Award sponsors Craft Business and The Giftware Association, as well as leading suppliers, were also invited to judge.

The Product Awards were open to all manufacturers and suppliers and as always attracted a large number of entries.

Cult Pens


The judges said of the winners…


“The family orientated approach towards how Scriptum operates is plain to see and their charity involvements are commendable.”

“We particularly love the support given to the lesser known artists, designers and makers by offering them a space to shine and for keeping the more traditional stationery offerings alive. All the products are thoughtfully sourced with quality and the environment in mind too.”

Sarah Laker, Stationery Supplies
“Sarah demonstrates a real passion for the industry and her drive to promote both local community and indie stationer initiatives, as well as ecological sound products is admirable. Her work behind schemes such as Stationery Shop Saturday are fantastic.”

Cult Pens
The team at Cult Pens continue to drive success through many pioneering initiatives, such as ’Inktober’ and ’Mechanical Pencil Day’. In addition, their dedication to produce high quality online content and customer service should be admired greatly.”





A new Rising Star Award was introduced to the Stationery Awards 2020 to recognise someone for their work in the stationery industry. The award is for an individual who demonstrates their passion for their business and products, as well as showing creativity, innovation and commitment to their role.





Rising Star

Marc Sach



The winner, Marc Sach, received high praise from all the judges for his dedication and hard work in single-handedly making his brand Fuzzballs, which started life as a web comic in 2013, a success.


The judges said of Marc:

“Dedication, determination and hard work have paid off for Marc and his brand is obviously loved by many! A worthy winner - well done!”
