STATIONERY DOESN’T ASK QUESTIONS; STATIONERY UNDERSTANDS

Remember the start of a new academic year? The excitement of a crisp notebook, a clean pencil case, a fresh pack of highlighters. You can practically smell it, can’t you?  As we’ve mentioned before, no matter how many years since you were last at school, those back-to-school vibes never leave. Which means it’s the perfect excuse for new stationery. But, how much of a stationery lover are you really? How deep does that love go? 

Here at TreatBox, we believe there are two types of people in this world, those who will grab any old notebook and pen to get the job done and those who have to consider such things carefully. 

So, if nothing quite sets your heart alight, like the feel of a new pen or the crisp, blank sheet of a fresh page, this is for you. We’re sharing our ten things you’ll only understand IF you are a true stationery geek.

1. IT TAKES YOU LONGER TO CHOOSE A NOTEBOOK OR PLANNER THAN IT DOES TO CHOOSE ANYTHING ELSE!

Is it all too easy to lose yourself down the notebook aisle? Do you have specific notebooks for different things, one for journaling, one for list making, one for random thoughts? Don’t worry; you are absolutely not alone! 

2. THE FEAR OF A FRESH PAGE IS REAL

And, if you love a new notebook or diary, do you get the fear when you turn over that blank, fresh page? Best handwriting only! 

3. You own notebooks you will never write on

Do you even have some notebooks that are purely for decoration? Ones you can never quite bring yourself to mark with a spot of ink! 

4. BUT ALSO, THE POSSIBILITIES INSIDE A NEW NOTEBOOK!

A brand new notebook conjures up all those feelings of endless possibilities. The notes you’ll write, the thought’s you’ll keep, the lists you’ll make. 

5. YOU'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT LINE WIDTH, PAPER QUALITY...

...and whether it’s a softcover, hardcover or bound, dotted, lined, or blank!

6. YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE PEN 

From fineliners and biros to fountain pens, what’s your scribe vibe? It’s all about the feeling of how smoothly a new pen glides across a blank page. 

7. YOU'RE A FULLY GROWN ADULT BUT...

...you still get just as excited by organisers, coloured post-it notes, and highlighters (although you’re more pastel than fluorescent these days), and your planner is more filofax than funfax (remember those?!).

8. YOU LOVE THE SNIFF OF A NEW NOTEBOOK

Did it pass the stationery sniff test? There’s nothing quite like that smell of a brand-new book, right?

9. You live for a list

You believe that life only goes to plan if you have a list. You love a list - and it's not getting done if it’s not on the list! 

Note! You’re not alone if you add things to your list that you’ve already done so that you can enjoy the satisfaction of crossing them off!

10. SEPTEMBER IS ALWAYS THE TIME TO STASH NEW STATIONERY 

It makes the perfect gift for that back to school, off to uni, a new day on the job moment. But, also, no fulfilling September ever got off to a good start without new pads and pens, so… treat your stationery-loving-self to some beautiful stationery! 

And, with that in mind, why not order your very own stationery stash with our stationery letterbox gift? Our stationery lovers TreatBox, makes the ideal gift for that friend or loved one embarking on new ventures or who simply loves stationery as much as you!
