National Stationery Week 2018
HAPPY NATIONAL STATIONERY WEEK
As well as National Stationery Week it's also Letter-Writing Month so celebrate with us! We really want to encourage you to pick up a pen and get writing some snail mail this week. Tell someone you're thinking of them, or perhaps it's an overdue thank you, a letter of encouragement or even just to say hi to a friend. There are so many reasons to make a meaningful connection with someone. We’ve collated a list of letter writing ideas to give you inspiration. And if that doesn’t help you think of someone to write to, write to us and we'll mail you a letter back including a little gift! (For all letters received by Friday 4th May).
37 Amwell Street
We did this last year and received some amazing letters - so pick up those pens!

LETTERS WE LOVE
We’ve started a new feature on our journal called Letters We Love. So far we’ve looked at the endearing letter sent from John Steinbeck to his eldest son, Thom. We’ve also put together some memos and letters from Diana Vreeland’s time at Vogue for some amusement and insight. There are also a collection of letters exchanged between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera through their at-times turbulent marriage. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come over the coming weeks.
If you’d like to add to your letter writing kit or stationery collection, we have a few stationery bits in the shop that will make it a little more personal – and stylish.
This tool is one of our favourites to help us write envelopes. It gives you the perfect spacing guide where you can either write inside the gaps or draw pencil lines which you can erase after.
Wax Seal Stamp, £32
What better way to seal your envelopes than with a wax seal stamp? We've got a few different motifs, alternatively we can design a bespoke monogram stamp for you.
Fountain Pen, £21.50
Kaweco's designs haven't changed since 1911 which provides the writer with a uniquely vintage writing experience. It's the perfect pen with its compact on-the-go design smooth to write nib and variety of nib widths and colours of casing. Also comes in Mint and Macchiato.
