With nearly 40 entries to review this year, the LaunchPad judges identified eight winners to receive a free exhibition stand at Stationery Show London 2019.
Entries came in from Australia, Poland, India and the UK from designers and established companies outside the stationery sector, all keen to see if they could break into the UK stationery market. The judges were looking for well-thought out product ideas, that were realistically priced which would benefit from the exposure a trade show can offer – either immediate orders, or the offer of support and development.

Bloom your message
Vent for Change
All the LaunchPad winners have been awarded a free stand at this year’s Stationery Show London at which to showcase their products and ideas. They will also be eligible to enter the Supplier Stationery Awards.
Event manager, Hazel Fieldwic, said: “We must say a huge thank you to our LaunchPad judges who took the time to review and discuss each of the entries last week. We’re very grateful for their time and feedback – it has been very useful for all our entrants to hear back from them.
“The LaunchPad stands always draw visitors keen to see new ideas coming into the market – and often it only takes one order, or one recommendation to make a huge difference to one of the winners!”
Stationery Show London will run on Tuesday, 30 April and Wednesday, 1 May at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.
