It is almost time for every stationery addict’s and stationery company’s favourite week – the return of the annual National Stationery Week! Starting 16th May, we’re a few weeks out from everything kicking off.
With National Stationery Week coming and the country finally opening up, moving on from the pandemic, now is a perfect time for stationery companies to consider partnering up and sponsoring the event. It also happens to be the best time for me to return to actively blogging once more. Every year, the week has “7 Days of Stationery” with each day sponsored by a different company. A few of these days have already been sponsored. However, there are still plenty of choices. For stationery companies looking to sponsor the week, now is the time to act. For stationery addicts like myself, this is a great year to find new companies or products, meet like-minded people or just go shopping. Any excuse to buy new stationery, after all, is one that I appreciate!
National Stationery Week
As the name suggests, the purpose of the week is to celebrate stationery and the act of using it. In particular, writing by hand – which in turn gives you the opportunity to send people more handwritten letters or cards.
This year, National Stationery Week runs from 16th May to 22nd May 2022. As always, there are seven days of stationery – a theme for each day of the week. These tend to be similar each year but with different sponsors taking up the mantle, it’s nice to see what they do differently each time.

I am particularly looking forward to seeing what the plans are for ‘Work Happy’, as I think that’s a really important theme – especially in the past couple of years. A lot of us have spent the majority of our time indoors and isolated. Self-care and creating a happy working environment – especially if you’re working from home has become even more important to people. I’m very keen to see what Snopake have planned for this theme.
Ryman has always been one of my favourite stationery stores since I was young. It has a good range of stationery that is both high in quality and affordable. And Silvine is a perfect sponsor for this national week with its British made products. So far, the sponsors have been incredible and I cannot wait to see who the remaining sponsors end up being.
If you’re a stationery addict, there will likely be a bunch of competitions and activities throughout the week for you. There is always something to be involved in! I hope you enjoy the week too.
