I’ve been pondering what to share for today’s post because as well as National Stationery Week, it’s also World Stationery Day! Even though there are a ton of amazing stationery brands all around the world, I really want to celebrate 5 of the best British stationery companies because we do stationery really really well here!
One of my first ever planners as a teen (besides the FunFax) was a pink Filofax pocket with a matching pen. Many people may remember Filofax as a traditional brand with classic leather colours and styles. However, their latest collections and notebooks draw on beautiful pastel tones and on-trend metallics. In short, they’ve nailed it! Check out the Filofax website here.
I’ve spoken about Hello Day many a time here on the blog, but Kirsten works incredibly hard to bring the most stylish planners to her customers every year. Can you spot my Planner Junkie pin below too?
Martha Brook is an award winning London based stationer, who specialise in foiled and personalised notebooks, planners, calendars and more. It’s all SO pretty, so well worth checking out.
If you’re ever looking for tongue-in-check pencils (Don’t be a knobhead is one!), personalised pencil cases and a fantastic range of handmade greetings cards, Oh Squirrel has to be a first stop. Katie has such a passion for what she does and a great eye for print, colour and sometimes glitter. Plus she’s an absolute sweetheart and always up for a chat at markets.
And my final pick for the best of British is the Old English Company. They are typography experts and have just created a line of planners that look so classy! They are also running a competition to win a set of planners right here so I agreed to share it with you – my fellow stationery addicts!
