JPS Stationers’ Creative Customer Wins Pentel Merch For The Shop

JPS Stationers in Chesham, Buckinghamshire is the winner of the trade competition associated with Pentel’s #PassionForPens campaign, which launched during National Stationery Week.

In the campaign, independent retailers could apply for special sample packs containing Pentel’s new Mattehop gel pens, a quick-drying EnerGel pen, a photo and a piece of blank paper. They were required to announce the availability of the free packs on social media and encourage their customers to come into store and request a set – which also gave them the opportunity to enter a competition to win a bundle of Pentel products worth £100. The winner of the consumer competition also won for their retailer a Pentel merchandising package featuring an EnerGel floor-standing display unit and a Mattehop counter display.

The consumer competition required entrants to use their award-winning Mattehop gel pen to deface the photo in the sample pack in an amusing and entertaining way and write a caption for it on paper using their EnerGel pen. Thanks to the creativity of his customer Lauren Crick – whose winning entry entitled ‘The King and his Jester’ delighted the independent judge – owner of JPS Stationers, Ray Williams won the Pentel trade prize package.

Receiving his prize from his Pentel representative, territory manager John Cotterell, Ray commented, “I’m thrilled to win the Pentel EnerGel and Mattehop merchandising units, containing products which are sure to be popular with my customers. We had a fantastic response to Pentel’s #PassionForPens campaign, and I’m really pleased that Lauren’s entry was considered the most creative by the judges.”
