Today it’s National Handwriting Day, a day to celebrate all things hand writing or hand written if you must! I love nothing more than to pick up a pen or pencil and writing in one of my hundreds of notebooks. There is something special about handwriting and maybe nowadays we just don’t do it often enough. With my daughter starting preschool in April, we have been getting to grips with writing and drawing.
Typing has become the most common way of writing, so it is important to put pen (or pencil) to paper and ensure that handwritten memoirs don’t become a thing of the past. STABILO is committed to keeping penmanship alive and with their range of products, there is something to suit everyone, whatever writing style; children and adults alike.
So what is National Handwriting Day and how did it come about?
The history behind National Handwriting Day
So National Handwriting Day was created by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977. Their motive is to promote the use of pens, pencils and writing paper. The 23rd January was chosen as this is the birthday of John Hancock. He was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence, and known for his big and bold signature.View Post
