A curious pen…

Last month’s Moustache Stationery box was on the theme of sustainability, and within it was one really interesting item: a bamboo calligraphy pen, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. Apologies, these photos aren’t up to my normal standards but this was un unplanned shoot! I was just sitting at my desk looking through… Read more »

Diamine Beethoven Ink Review

What better way to end National Stationery Week than with an ink review. The guys at Wick & Hide got in touch with me recently to tell me about their ink sampling service. You can either buy a set of samples from a certain brand, e.g. Diamine, J.Herbin or they have a monthly ink sampling… Read more »

London Stationery Show 2016

Reader, I failed! On Monday I said I’d blog every day this week and I only got as far as Wednesday. This week (like all my weeks it seems) ended up being super busy and I’m writing this from a hotel room in Scotland before going to a wedding. I may not have blogged very… Read more »

Stationery “staples”: Bic & Staedtler

The folks at National Stationery Week sent me a bag of goodies, including brands like Bic and Staedtler, which I consider to be office supply/stationery cupboard staples (no pun intended). These aren’t my normal bag – I’m a bit picky about my stationery choices, I like items that have been thoughtfully designed and aren’t necessarily… Read more »

Stationery Stop Motion

Just wanted to share this super cute stationery-themed stop motion animation today which I found on It’s Nice That. Called A Small Escape, the short film is about a pair of scissors that comes alive and together with its stationery comrades makes a bid for freedom. It’s by David Sandell and won the best animated… Read more »

How Marbled Paper Is Made

Guys, I cannot recommend enough taking 12 minutes and 52 seconds to watch this video! It’s a mini documentary about Cockerell Marbling and was made in 1970 by Bedfordshire County Council. I love everything about it, from the clipped voice of the narrator, to the music – even the Bedfordshire County Council logo is spot… Read more »

Typo Launches in the UK!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that a couple of weeks ago I was invited to an event for Australian brand Typo, who have just launched in the UK. There was a pretty serious amount of desk inspiration as well as cute and cool products on show. It was a really fun… Read more »
