To celebrate National Stationery Week starting 25th April, we are on a nationwide hunt to find Britain's biggest stationery obsessive. With comedian Sarah Millican and author Jill Mansell confessing to their love of stationery, and Peter Jones carrying his trusty Yard O Led Viceroy wherever he goes, it appears many of us Brits share this common admiration, with hardcore fans flocking to National Stationery Week in their droves every year.
If you think you’re love for stationery “knows-no-bounds”, you could be in with a chance to win a £150 hamper from Pen Heaven. We want to know why you can’t walk pass a stationery shop without a compulsion to enter, why your stationery collection is your prized possession or perhaps why you adore your library of fastidiously organised journals and notebooks.
One winner will be selected based on the extravagance of their stationery addiction. They will receive a £150 gift voucher to spend on Pen Heaven.
To enter, complete this sentence “‘I love stationery because…….’. Images of stationery collections in all their glory are highly encouraged, and will be taken into account by the judges. The competition starts on the 9th March and closes on 1st May 2016. Email your entry to info@ or tweet @pen_heaven using the hashtag #ILoveStationery. “Many years ago…before people obsessed over computers, tablets and mobile phones, it was popular to have the best of the best in stationery. We reveled in the extensive choice of colourful, quirky and downright amazing pens, rubbers, pencil cases, books and diaries. Although technology is a brilliant invention, these retro items bring back memories in a way a laptop could never do – they were silly, fun and personalised. My personal favourite? The wind-up sharpener.” – David Cole, Pen Heaven
