An Ode to Stationery

Why we'll never be totally tech-dependent

There are few things in life as satisfying as a new stationery. On a par with freshly washed sheets and matching underwear that gives you that “I’ve got this” feeling, it’s little wonder picking out a new set is the one big bribe for returning schoolkids.

Here at maven46 HQ, we pride ourselves on our tech-savvy nature but if there’s one thing we won’t swap our screens for, it’s stationery. Give us bouquets of sharpened pencils any day over roses, as we are firm believers in writing things out by hand. The therapeutic action of off-loading on a diary, sketching on a clean white sheet can be just as rewarding as ticking off a long list. There’s no better way to get the creative juices flowing and reaffirm your memory all at once.

As the days get longer, aid your memory, creativity and productivity, and invest in some of this stand-out stationery…
