|We've been so busy gearing up for the National Stationery Show that we nearly missed today's exciting new holiday, National Stationery Day! The 2012 London Stationery Show launched today's event to promote beautiful stationery to consumers and press. |
We're in full support of this new celebration of the written word, and we agree that this is the perfect day to stock up on cards for your emergency stationery arsenal. You know what I'm talking about; Facebook tells you it's your cubicle-mate's birthday today, and you're leaving for work completely unprepared. Start buying cards that you like whenever you see them! Organize them in a box or folder so you're ready for any card-giving occasion. You can buy greeting card organizers ready-made or make your own. Sort cards with folder tabs for every celebration, be it "Happy Birthday," "Congrats on the Pregnancy," or "Oh Sorry, I Could Have Sworn You Were Pregnant."
My mom had a stationery arsenal when I was a kid, and it was awesome for last-minute card needs. I have fond memories of digging through the box and finding the right card for whoever's birthday it was. The best part was that we bought them all throughout the years, so each card brought back a memory of when it was purchased. This also reminds me that I need to pick out a Mother's Day card...
