Remarkable: Paperchase listing

Paperchase is stocking a new back to school stationery range from the eco supplier, Remarkable, in 70 UK stores; including its flagship on Tottenham Court Road, London.

The back to school range is exclusive to Paperchase and comprises four lines: a pack of 10 colouring pencils, made from FSC timber; three HB pencils, made from recycled CD cases; one 30cm ruler, made from recycled packaging; and a geometry set, made from biodegradable corn starch.

There are over 100 Paperchase outlets in the UK plus concessions in stores including House of Fraser, Waterstones, Selfridges and Harrods; and branches in Ireland, Holland and the Middle East. Remarkable said it hoped the range will be rolled out across the network in time for the next school year.

“We have been very happy with the way the Remarkable range has been received,” said Zeta Guest, stationery buyer for Paperchase. “Customers seem to be drawn to the bright, striking designs and the great prices, with the back to school promotion selling particularly well since we first began stocking the products in July.”

Remarkable managing director, Ed Douglas Miller, is taking part in the Bupa Great North Run on 18 September 2011 to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
