The Far East
The majority of novelty stationery products now come from The Far East and we have been visiting the many countries making the lines for over 50 years.
Top quality companies from Japan and Taiwan have now set up factories in China to take advantage of the cost of a huge skilled labour force. The quality and precision which these companies have produced for many years is essential for their produce to be viable in the World market.
Other companies are shipping from Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore, and Indonesia. All specialising in their own products.
Taiwan, itself, still supplies some items at great value, particularly the intricate printing needed for some memos and notebooks.
We buy direct from these factories and introduce new exclusive ranges on a regular basis.
The Far East will continue to be the major supplier of novelty stationery for the foreseeable future and we will continue to be there in the midst of it!
