When you come across a stationery shop which carries a sea of colorful and sleek products, are you inclined to stop and browse? 

Owning stationery is a more emotional experience than one would have guessed. It makes us feel good about ourselves, and isn’t just about tools to scribble our notes down. Stationery promises individuality, a sense of control and, most strikingly, potential. If your stationery is amazing, it will seem like you are too.

In this digital age, beautiful stationery is a physical reminder of our attachment to the written word. It serves as a counterpoint to our digital lives, providing a textile, nostalgic element that is increasingly buried behind the facet of automated efficiency.

Stationery lends a feeling of organization and independence in our lives. Not only do you have the means for controlling your environment and getting your work done, there is something grown-up and professional about owning a serious piece of stationery.

Stationery also creates a sense of individuality and creativity by reflecting our varied style and personality in the choices that we make. It grants us the rather inexpensive means to express ourselves in diverse ways.

Mostly, stationery is potential. It is the beginning of something new, and the firm intention to improve your life, with pages of a journal that have yet to be written.

So, you don’t have to be a kid to go crazy over good stationery. These are some exciting stationery ideas to fill your pencil cases this school (or work) year! Find one that can herald a new start today!

With so many cool and unique offerings, why settle for your conventional pen and paper any longer?

Owning stunning stationery makes us feel like we stand out from the rest of the stationery-bearing crowd, and with all these exciting, new options, why wait? Now that you know why you love pretty stationery so much, why not go one further and up your stationery game with this easy, 5-minute DIY!
