by | Aug 9, 2018 | Lifestyle | 0 comments

If you love stationery as much as I do, you will love these fancy stationery brands that will brighten up your day. Investing in high quality stationery can catapult your productivity, improve your work output and refine your image with your employer and colleagues.

Stationery doesn’t have to be the drab plain notepads and cracked biros, it can express your personality, brighten your mood and make even the most boring office task entertaining.

Maybe you are someone who likes a motivational Monday morning quote on your diary, a nostalgic glittery pen to perk up the paperwork or a kitschy printed notepad to put a smile on your face.

Having a happy desk space makes that end of week deadline a little less daunting and that Monday morning commute a little more endurable.

Having a  little piece of your personality in a workspace can make you feel less like a cog in a corporate machine and will improve your productivity.

Sometimes splashing out on little things like stationery can improve your mood and almost make you excited to return to the office. Whilst the days of shopping for school supplies is over it doesn’t mean we can’t still splurge on ourselves.

Whether you’re a creative who works at home or someone who wants to update their office space, someone who’s into girly stationery or one who likes everything as minimal as possible, here are the best fancy stationery brands that will elevate your workflow.
