Why stationery matters

We need stationery

I made this short video (very short!) with Instagram in mind, hence the speed and 14 second nature of it. The idea was simply to highlight what a poor world we would live in without stationery. Be careful what you wish for, although I guess any reader of Stationery Wednesday is unlikely to be wishing for an analogue-free world.

The running order is:

Lamy Al-Star FP; Moleskine pocket notebook; Caran d’Ache Chromatic ink; Field Notes Cherry Wood notebooks; Rhodia magazine file; Spiral paperclips; Crown Mill card & envelope set; Biella lever arch file; Ohto Horizon lacquer pen; Crown Mill cube; Clairefontaine music book; Field Notes Two Rivers edition; Griffix FP; Nuuna notebook; Herbin scented ink set; Rhodia R A5 pad; Pink paperclips; Neocritz pencil case; Mark’s Jigsaw notebook; Harinacs staple-less stapler; Moleskine Simpsons edition; Lamy brushed steel Econ pen; Papelote notebook strap; Papelote fabric notebook; Paperways city memo notes; Platignum ballpoint pen; Semi Kolon magazine file; Coccoina glue; Tombow glue roller; Lamy Safari FP.

  1. Love the Why Stationery Matters, but really want to know what all the pens are… Can you list them. I must have missed a couple of these at least, and need to add them to the Grand Collection of inking implements, at ONCE!

    1. Hi Rosi – good idea. I have now put a list up in (hopefully the correct) order with links where possible. You’ll still need to work out where in the running order but maybe that’s half the fun?!

  2. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be
    bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  3. My brother recommended I would possibly like this website.
    He used to be entirely right. This post truly made my day.
    You cann’t consider just how much time I had spent for this info!
    Thank you!
