Clare Finney, a 26 year old teacher in Newcastle, won a £250 stationery hamper in a prize draw on Twitter and Facebook on National Stationery Day in April.Clare is a great letter writer and a real stationery devotee who has recently started her own online stationery business, Pink Box Crafts that supplies handmade envelopes.
Clare was presented with her hamper which included products from Paperchase as well as many exhibitors at the Stationery Show, by Chris Leonard-Morgan, organiser of National Stationery Day and the London Stationery Show and Emma Tilley, assistant manager of Paperchase’s Newcastle upon Tyne store where Clare buys her stationery.
“It’s hard to choose my favourite piece of stationery. I don’t know what I would do without my Stabilo highlighter and Post-it notes,” says Clare. “The best place to buy is Paperchase – I don’t think I ever leave without buying something, especially paper to make envelopes for Pink Box Crafts.”
National Stationery Day is to become National Stationery Week in 2013, following this year’s runaway success that resulted in massive exposure in national, consumer and trade press and on radio, Twitter, Facebook, blogs and websites worldwide.
