Whatever your age or occupation, you'll probably encounter the world of stationery on an almost daily basis. From the simple pen kept by the telephone, to the detailed world of 'save the date' cards and wedding invitations, stationery plays a huge part in almost everybody's lives. Stationery styles can vary greatly; if you're looking for something as simple as a notebook, you might find yourself trying to choose between those with covers decorated with modern geometric designs and any that might be made from recycled paper and card 'ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ whatever your criteria, it's never been easier to find stationery that suits you and your life.
While children as young as five might be using pens and pencils on a daily basis, it won't be until junior school that they're expected to provide their own 'ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ which is when you'll be faced with the world of children's stationery. Helping your child to choose between characters, bands and football teams can seem daunting; after all, there are pens, pencils and rulers adorned with everyone from Angry Birds to One Direction, and everything in between. If characters aren't quite what your child is looking for, choose from vintage style patterns and bright colours.
A completely different type of stationery, 'save the date' cards and wedding invitations can cause a great deal of indecision; from the style and colour of the card, to the way the invitation opens, there's a lot to choose from. Personalised invitations with loose inserts, paper-cut invitations and those decorated with ribbons and beads are all popular, and can be easily customised to fit in with your personal colour scheme.
