Trustmark Stationery Stores Blog

15th July 2017 - It's been a while

Well, that was an incredibly long time to be away from the blog! Apologies! But we have been busy busy busy trying and testing products to get you all exactly the things you want. We're always here though - if you can't reach the store during opening hours you can also get us on FaceBook or Twitter :) 

9th January 2016 - New Year, New Catalogues, New Challenges

Wow, what a fantastic 2015 we had here at Trustmark Stationery Stores! With the support of some lovely customers we raised a lot of money for Wear it Pink Breast Cancer campaign, Children in Need, Save the Children Christmas Jumper day, WellChild and 2 Wish Upon a Star. And our fabulous charity cyclist Vicky did some of the most toughest challenges ever! If you look closely enough, you'll be able to see the little cycling icon we've created for Vicky on the front of our 2016 Business Supplies catalogue!

However, there's always room for improvement and 2016 will be even better, with more charities to support and activities to tackle.

Still haven't got yours? You can order a set of our catalogues and brochures here! Or simply click on the images below to order the catalogue you would like.

Don't forget our new Janitorial Supplement too!

Happy New Year everyone!! :)

Being left handed can be a struggle.

Endless ink smudges from right handed pens.

Your art work is guaranteed to be messed up if it includes paint, chalk, oil pastels etc.

And in primary school, the fight to be one of the lucky few to get their hands on the special left handed scissors seems almost like being in The Hunger Games.

Luckily, we have some stationary essentials for left handers to rid you of your suffering.

Don't miss out! Check them online or visit our store.

13th June 2015 - Trustmark's Summertime Kids Activities!!

Summertime is the best time of year for children. There's sun, trips to the beach, they're able to eat ice lollies every single day, regularly visiting the ice cream man AND they get to nag their parents about being bored until mum or dad take them somewhere fun!

However, in Britain, summer also means a few rainy days here and there, interrupting any form of summer fun.

At least thats what the children think!

It is a well-known fact that young children love arts and crafts, make and dos etc. And rainy days are reserved for such activities.

After some research, we have found ways that you can still have fun and maybe even spread some summer cheer even though it seems like winter outside of your window.

Two words: Fish Canvas.

The Fish Canvas is a fun, messy but simple activity. Keeping to the theme of summer by being ocean based, it is a great substitute for the rainy beach. And the best thing is that it has no age limits! So for a great activity for all the family, all you need is paper/card, paints and your hands!!

Here's an example of some great ocean artwork:

Here at Trustmark, we have a wonderful range of art supplies ranging from different types of paint brushes to big bottles of ready mixed paints to help with all of your art projects, whether it's fun projects with the little ones or a personal professional session, we can help!

 

30th May 2015 - Stupid Staplers!! (or not so stupid?)

Have you ever changed the setting on your stapler with no idea how to change it back?

Or do you just wonder why the stapler can do weird 'outward' stapling? 

Fun Fact: The rotatable section of a stapler which changes the settings is called an anvil.

Did you know? Back in the 1960's, members of the Civil Service were taught to use the anvil for its second purpose for presentations which were to be separated at some stage.

Using the outward staple setting is actually called pinning instead of stapling.

Its purpose is to pin papers/documents/presentations together only to be removed later on.

The outwardness makes the staples easier to remove unlike 'normal' staples which require a staple remover and are likely to rip the corners of the paper.

Check out our range of 'Not So Stupid' staplers here.
