Plans for National Stationery Week 2024 are off to a fabulous start, with seven leading brands already having pledged their support as sponsors for the weeklong event.

National Stationery Week runs from Monday May 13 to Sunday May 19 and encompasses the London Stationery Show on Tuesday May 14 and Wednesday May 15 at the Business Design Centre in Islington.

Maped Helix, Pentel, Staedtler and Zebra Pen are on board as headline sponsors for National Stationery Week (each sponsoring a day), while Sinclairs has signed up as sponsor of the #Shelfie Competition to kickstart the build-up and joins Exaclair and The Art File as a countdown week sponsor.

For the second year running, independent stationery retailer Sarah Laker, owner of Stationery Supplies in Marple and Wilmslow, is heading up the campaign for National Stationery Week, working closely with the Max Publishing team (which acquired London Stationery Show and National Stationery Week at the end of 2023), as well as event manager Chantelle White and founder Chris Leonard-Morgan, who is on board as a special advisor.

Sarah said: “I’m delighted that we have four great headline sponsors already signed up, all of whom have repledged their support after being sponsors last year – which shows how well last year’s campaign went, something we will be building on this year. National Stationery Week is my favourite week of the year, I’ve taken part in it since the beginning in 2011, so I was beyond excited to be asked to spearhead the National Stationery Week campaign again this year.”
