The cover story of this first Stationery Matters from new owners Max Publishing, is an exclusive interview with Ryman’s ceo, Theo Paphitis.

With Q1 now done and dusted (and most of us would say thank goodness!) we caught up with several retailers and suppliers to reflect on how business has been and what the rest of 2024 has in store for them.

Elsewhere in the issue, we catch up with the iconic German writing instrument brand, Lamy and learn more about its future plans under new owners Mitsubishi Pencil, as well as hearing more about new launches coming over summer. We shine the light on sustainability, highlighting several companies which are really raising the bar when it comes to doing business in a more sustainable way.
