Typo Stationery | National Stationery Week

April 29, 2019 in Blog - 19 Comments

This week celebrates one of my favourite obsessions which I have harboured from being a child….. stationery. The year I got a Pilot pen set was one of my favourite birthdays. Plus don’t get me started on shopping before a new school year, the WH Smith times table pencil case was a must have.

Well next week is National Stationery Week (insert an excited shriek) and I am going to show you one of my favourite shops to go for my stationery supplies…. the mothership that is known as Typo.

Shout out to fellow stationery hoarders, if you haven’t been to Typo yet…. then you will thank me when you do. If you love the pretty designs in Paperchase then you will certainly have the same gratitude for Typo. Don’t worry if you can’t get to a Typo store, they have a super cool website for you to buy much needed stationery…. we can all agree you can never have too much stationery (FACT).

Typo do much more than just stationery, there is a quirky home and tech range for you to purchase. In fact Typo is my one stop place for mugs, and these get so much attention in photos. Anyhow lets get back to the nitty gritty of their awesome stationery range. 

There was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationery

Typo Stationery Haul

Recently I purchased a mini stationery purchase as Typo had a fantastic sale on, and if ever I need a reason (I don’t really need a reason) then I had to purchase some stationery items. 

I brought more sets of the 3pk To Do Lists, they match the colours of my office. I am a list maker, wether digitally or paper. You can’t beat a paper list and the overwhelming enjoyment in crossing off a task. Also I am not afraid to admit I am that person that will complete a task and add it to my list after execution and cross off to mark my accomplishment. I brought a few of these as I will be taking a set to work. Plus Typo change their stock for fresh designs so I stocked up while they were still available. 

Typo notebooks are also fabulous designs and really good prices, there are normally offers for multi-buys. I normally buy the spiral notebooks in mixtures of A4 and A5 but this time I also brought some hidden spiral notebooks. I have a small dalmation print theme through my home office in places and thought the notebook I purchased matched perfectly. The other said ‘Exert Procrastinator’ and well if the title fits. The A5 size are my favourites as they are easy to carry around. Josie my daughter has an extensive set of Typo notebooks. 

Typo has an extensive range of pens, which like the mugs I own a fair amount. My favourites are the Mickey Mouse thin pens. I had the cold one already and it is my favourite pen to use at home, so I also brought the black and rose gold one. I love Disney and Typo has some fantastic bits in store, and currently they have a Friends range from the hit TV Show which I have my eye on a Pivot notebook as this was one of my favourite scenes. If you know what I am on about then I can guarantee you are shouting ‘PIVOT’ in your head this moment…. no need for thanks. 

One of my favourite Disney items that I brought a while ago (not in store now but there are other designs) is the desk-pad. This is perfect as it matches my office colours, fits under my monitor stand and is Disney related. I love the fact there is no dates and I can use this for days or projects. I love this as if it was a month to a sheet and then Antony or the kids doodle on it I don’t have to waste a whole sheet, or sit there twitching at the non aesthetic looking doodles facing me while I work.

I first came across the store when a new branch had opened at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol. Typo is certainly worth checking out if you want quirky, statement stationery which also is brilliant if you are in need of a gift. I love the fact the range is constantly changing so there is always something different, plus to suit all tastes. Not long ago was the tropical print which I adored, and also there was a dinosaur range. Currently there is Aladdin merchandise, ready for the film release in May.

I don’t think I will ever get fed up of stationery, and finally I am actually using all of my notebooks. Normally I would start a brand new book (honestly this beats ticking off a To Do List task) and then promptly make a mistake. Along comes my anxiety and the eye twitching would start and then I wouldn’t use it again. I am pleased to say I am working through this perfectionist problem and finally using them 🙂

I am looking forward to the fact that National Stationery Week falls over payday, as I am certain seeing so many stationery posts that they are going to influence me to need some new purchases.

If you check out my YouTube channel you will see Typo mentioned a fair few times in my haul videos, I told you I am a regular Typo shopper.

I would love to know if you are also a fellow stationery addict or hoarder? What is your favourite stationery purchase? Have you been to Typo before?

    Oh dear, I can see this costing me a small fortune. I have been obsessed with stationery since I was a little girl – I’m 48 now and still hoard stationery like it’s going out of fashion! I buy stationery because I want it, not because I need it – trust me I have loads already. Then I don’t want to use it because it looks so nice. 😀 lol

      Love it, I am the same that you don’t want to use it. Thanks so much for commenting x

    Uh oh… it’s pay day tomorrow as well… I’m in trouble! These look like some really great bits, I’m definitely going to be checking out their website and probably spending way too much money, but who can blame me, right? Thank you so much for the intro – even if my wallet doesn’t agree, aha!

      I am tempted to stay up until midnight for wages to hit the bank and go on a spree. Let me know what you get if you do x

    Great post! I love typo and only discovered it through another haul you did on your vlog so thanks! 😀 I try not to buy notebooks now as I have a million and need to use them up, but I am a sucker for different colouring pens/metallic markers etc! I enjoy novelty pens but don’t think they are practical I have kept my paperchase fluffy rainbow pen for the aesthetic 😆

    • Stacey Spruels April 29, 2019 at 9:20 pm

      Aww thanks lovely, I feel proud having helped a few find the treasure that is Typo. Know what you mean about the novelty ones. That why love these thin ones as can write with them. Josie has a punching llama pen that is pretty cool but impossible to write with lol xx

    I’ve never been to Typo! I’m definitely guilty of buying too much stationery, though I’m trying to get better! Notebooks tend to be my go-to, I have a few favourite sellers on Etsy that I can’t help buying from!

    I also have a strange obsession with stationary, I always seem to buy more of it and don’t always need it but I have the blogging excuse. I definitely will be checking out Typo their stuff looks lovely especially the to do sheets! X

    I want to snap one of each! I can’t believe I never knew about Typo! I love their disney collection and hope to visit my local Cotton On store as they have some Typo products there.

    Thank you for sharing these lovely products. These types of hauls are my favorite!

    I LOVED going back to school because it meant stationary shopping! I actually worked in a stationary shop when I was at University and the manager actually said to me “we can just pay you in products instead of money because you spend it all in here anyway” 🙂 – I love Typo though, I recently went in for the first time and I didn’t want to leave. I really like seeing what people get in their hauls, especially if it’s a stationary haul! 🙂

    • Stacey Spruels May 1, 2019 at 8:35 pm

      The going back to school stationery was the best wasn’t it. All shiny and new 🙂 I would happily be paid in stationery lol x

  • Nicola May 1, 2019 at 9:10 pm

    Oh wow, Typo sounds (and looks) amazing. As a writer I have a bit of a love affair with stationery, too. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous and showcase the products really well.

      Thanks so much Nicola xx

    Oooh, I didn’t know it’ll be national stationery week next week! TYPO HAS THE CUTEST STATIONERY!!! Cotton On did a great job by taking advantage of this market with this brand. They have so many cute Disney stationery and chic things. I always end up spending more than I should there, hehe. Glad you found some cute goodies to add to your collection!

    I’ve only recently discovered Typo (a store has just opened in Southampton) but I think I am going to be visiting every time I go into town. It is sooo cool, I love their stuff! I really love your stationery goodies you have picked, those list pads are gorgeous! Yay for to-do lists 🙂 I need to go check out their Aladdin range soon… Disney + stationery, what could be better than that! Thanks for sharing Stacey, fab post and beautiful photos too! <3 xx

    I love stationery but have never heard of Typo. I’m going to have to make a little trip to Cribbs Causeway and check it out. My sister would adore those Mickey Mouse pens!

    • Stacey Spruels July 2, 2019 at 9:27 pm

      You will love it, I have been to Cribbs today but didn’t go in there this time. Is a great shop xx
