Last year I confessed something that probably made stationery addicts everywhere gasp in horror (dramatic, much?). 2016 was the first time I heard about National Stationery Week being a real thing. Maybe this is you right now!? ha But anyway, yes, it is ‘a thing’ and the 2017 stationery hype is in full swing as I post this – in fact TODAY is World Stationery Day. I hope you’ve been geeking out over pencils with no shame?...

It seems like forever ago now but back in July I was 1 of 10 bloggers that took part in a secret challenge involving printers, filming and HP. I’d signed myself up for it without really knowing what it was BUT I do love a challenge and printing so didn’t think it could go too badly wrong. Waiting with the other bloggers, we chatted through some ideas on what we might be doing – obviously it...

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Print Club London are looking for an apprentice! When I heard that the guys at PCL were looking for someone to take under their inky wing I was SO jealous. Honestly, if I didn’t have a job I would have applied myself! Although I regularly pop into the PCL exhibitions, it’s been a while since I’ve screen printed. With the aprinternship news, I thought I’d reminisce and share some of...

After receiving an invite in the post (of which I featured the stamp in week one of my #100daysoftriangles project) Jo & I headed to The Boiler Room at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for the Arjowiggins Pop Up 2015 exhibition. I really like the branding for the event – simple, bold and well considered across a lot of different platforms from flags to badges and bags. The exhibition is touring the world, having...

Happy Friday! Just wanted to share my new favourite tote bag with you guys – you all know that I’m definitely not a fashion blogger as I am SO awkward in front of the camera, but I couldn’t resist. I won this beaut at last week’s Printout print special talk after I asked a question in the Q&A and have been in love with it ever since. It looks good; bold and typographic, and is...

Last week I found myself at the Book Club once again for the second Printout of the year, this time a Print Special. Originally I was going with Sara but she had to work late(boo), so I persuaded Jo to come along and stop me from being a loner. Hosts Jeremy from MagCulture and Steve from Stack Magazines introduced the speakers and then we were ready to talk print: 1.People of Print 2. The Long Good...

Last night after work Soof (who has been interning just around the corner from gpstudio – I’m going to miss her when she goes off to Reading to start her MA!) & I headed to Covent Garden to attend the People of Print magazine launch: Print isn’t dead. Outside the London Graphic Centre things were looking a bit grey and gloomy, but inside… … it was a different story. And look, my nails matched the...
