National Stationery Week announces first sponsor

Ocean Media Group, organiser of National Stationery Week, is thrilled to announce that its first official sponsor is stationery manufacturer Maped Helix, who will start the week off colourfully with #CreativityDay on Monday May 15.

National Stationery Week takes place between May 15 and May 21 and celebrates stationery in all forms. Launched in 2011, the initiative engages the whole pencil case of the stationery industry, from stationery brands to retailers and the customers they serve.

Maped Helix Head of Marketing Lianne Fletcher said: “National Stationery Week is a fun but meaningful campaign that encourages the nation to put pen to paper. With Maped Helix known for the quality of its stationery products that have lasted the test of time, we were keen to be involved with this fantastic event and celebrate all things stationery!

“As well as traditional stationery, Maped Helix will be championing #CreativityDay and encouraging people of all ages to put down their screens and get creative. Maped Helix has a vast range of innovative colouring and craft products that inspire creativity, and we can’t wait to see everyone get involved.”
