Manuscript Pen Company is celebrating an historic seal of an approval, after receiving a Stationers’ Company warrant for the brand’s ML1856 pen.
The ML1856 Collection celebrates Manuscript’s 162-year history and combines modern design with traditional manufacturing techniques.
The company has remained in the hands of the same family since its inception, and is currently run by Charlie Stockbridge, the fifth generation to take charge of the historic brand since its inception.
The brand has been a key driver in a thriving stationery market which has risen to a value of around £2.06bn over the previous 12 months, up five per cent on the figures from 2017.
Receiving the Warrant continues Manuscript’s success of the last twelve months, including joining the Made in Britain Campaign and scooping a nomination in the Stationery Awards.
This is the first time Manuscript has won the Stationers’ Warrant, with the brand rewarded for its ‘traditional but modern [pens] that are hugely unique in our industry.’
Stockbridge, MD of Manuscript, collected the award from the St Paul’s venue. He said:
“It’s a real honour to receive this accolade and be recognised for our innovations.
“We’ve got a rich history and receiving this warrant adds another chapter to our past, as we look forward to the future.
“We’ve joined a select group of names who have received a Stationers’ Warrant and we’ll be celebrating this in our office.”
