Last week was National Stationery Week , three words that set our paper-obsessed hearts all aflutter!

With new boxes and ideas in mind, we took ourselves and a giant rubber duck up to London for two days. Incidentally, the duck is shortly to have some kind of green accent. We want to signify the joint heritage of Ink Drops – Ducking Fabulous and Midorigreen.

It was heaven. Actual stationery heaven. The Business Design Centre in Islington is a lovely building anyway. Fill it with two floors of stationery companies and we didn’t know where to look first!

All our careful plans went out of the window. We gave ourselves over to the event. It was so inspiring to meet so many like-minded people in such a short period of time. Talk about wonderful.

Consequently, we’re still deciding exactly which delights we’ll be ordering for new boxes, and planning some competitions and giveaways. Meanwhile, let me leave you with some of the Ink Drops Duck’s adventures…

We had a wonderful, inspirational two days and have come back fizzing with excitement, plans and ideas. Watch this space!
