The what

Stationery Wednesday was set up in 2012 as the social media side to Bureau Direct, an award-winning family-owned stationery website. Initially just ('just'!) a weekly email newsletter, in early 2015 it had grown enough to see a website launched in its own right. This website.

The who

Bureau Direct is a family-run stationery business owned and run by brother-&-sister Dominic & Jo Irons. It's aim is to source and present the best stationery available.

The why

If you're wondering why we don't just have a 'Bureau Direct' blog, well here goes. We realised soon after launching our Stationery Wednesday weekly email that we had quite a loyal following. Somewhere between finding people using the #stationerywednesday hashtag and World Stationery Day being declared on a Wednesday, of all days, it was felt that the time had come to give Stationery Wednesday its own wings. Where it goes next is a matter for discussion but this website is a big step towards giving Stationery Wednesday a life outside of Bureau Direct.
