At www.pen2paper.co.uk we sell all office supplies and stationery with over 20,000 in stock available for next day delivery throughout the UK. This is not to be confused with a Stationary Man who has no office supplies but is just standing very still!!

It's suprising to know that people often miss spell stationery when looking for office supplies by typing stationary as in standing still. As one of the most established office supplies families with over 88 years in the business, I've sought to put this right by writing this guide!
