National Stationery Week: The Dodo Jotter #lovestationery #getbritainwriting

Here’s another lovely ‘guest’ blog post from National Stationery Week,  Becky Harding who blogs at busybeemummybex.blogspot.co.uk and loves our Desk Jotter Pad – check out her brilliant doodles and how she has personalised it 🙂

National Stationery week is upon us & I want to share this absolutely perfect Dodo Jotter Pad with you.
I’m probably in the minority these days as we own iPads, iPhones & a mac book however I still use a pen & paper most days. I own a diary & simply love the ‘realness’ of writing.
I panic that I’ll put a note in my phone & shortly forget it.
My life is hectic. So crazy that I need a real diary to write everything down at short notice. It probably makes no sense to you if you use your smart phone for everything.
I just can’t get my head around it, I suppose I’m still quite old fashioned.
Nothing beats a pen & paper…. in my eyes.
Why do I love the Dodo Jotter so much?
Well it has different sections to it.
The blank calendar in the corner is perfect.
Then the doodle area is totally me specially if I’m on the phone I quite like a doodle.
The To DoDo today area – I love a good to do list.
I added the meal planner bit for my own use, the blank space is perfect.
Being able to jot my blog ideas down… Perfect.
The Dodo jotter is available in two sizes; the A3 desk jotter (this one) & then the B5 size perfectly portable.
They’re designed to alleviate boredom & keep even the scattiest desk-dweller on the straight & narrow.
They’re made with 50 sheets of high quality 100gsm paper. No pen will be able to get through it.
My favourite bit is designated biscuits & coffee zones.
I also love that the bottom edge is glued on rather than the traditional top, this saves the corners from rolling up & becoming crinkled & unsightly. PERFECT.
I’m delighted to tell you that this product was made locally in Cornwall, England where Dodo Pad is based.

Desk delight for wilting workstations

Dodo doodlers, splendid scribblers, joyful jotters and noble note-takers behold! The Dodo Jotter has landed!

Our brand-spanking new, generously sized A3 desk pad has been lovingly designed to alleviate boredom and keep even the scattiest desk-dweller on the straight and narrow.

Dodo Pad Jotter

The dodelightful Dodo Jotter!

The Jotter has all of the charm (if we may humbly say so) of our much-loved Dodo Pad diary paired with the functionality that fans of the Dodo Pad have come to rely upon over the last *ahem* almost 50 years. With a segregated doodle area for scribbling on whilst on the phone, to a three-month planner and even special zones for biscuits and coffee, the Dodo Jotter is the perfect adornment and ideal distraction for any desk.

In the 'biscuit' zone

A perfectly sized spot for a choc chip cookie or biscuit of your choice!

It also doubles, triples and quadruples up as a saucer, hangman display board and somewhere to rest your head when it’s been ‘one of those days’. (The paper smells nice too – we tested it! 😀 )

Are you looking at your own dog-eared desk jotter right now? Do you see those crinkly corners? Well, on Lord Dodo’s Dodo Jotter, it’s the bottom edge that’s glued rather than the traditional top, saving corners from rolling up and becoming unsightly. Sorry, other jotters, it’s nothing personal.

With every crook and corner of our own Dodo Pads covered with doodles, notes, telephone messages and more, we decided the time was right to create a large Dodo Jotter to free up space to be creative and expressive as well as note any critical daily ‘To Do’s –or ‘To Do-Do’s as we say on this particular product!

There’s lots of space for thoughts, ideas, doodles and dates. As you will know, there’s little more frustrating than finding you’ve scribbled smiley faces all over the back of a very important document. Having a Dodo Jotter on the desk will alleviate such problems, and that’s why you can grab one now from our online store.

And don’t forget to keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages as there will be a chance to win one in the not too distant future and there’s even a baby-sized version on the cards – it’s a fast developing twinkle in Lord Dodo’s eye!

Happy Easter weekend!

That was the National Stationery Week that was!

Sorry we didn’t blog last week, we were on tour… No, not with Lord Dodo’s heavy metal band the Wailing Dodo’s (one for another blog, I’m sure *hemhem*), but to celebrate National Stationery Week at the London Stationery Show! Like Nelly the Elephant before him, Lord Dodo proudly packed his trunk (and we packed ours) and we transported our wares up to the big smoke to showcase the best of Dodo Pad at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington. Though we did request from HRH Queen Elizabeth II Dodo Herethat The Royal Train be used to ferry His Lordship to the city, unfortunately the locomotive was in for a service on the 1 – 2 April and therefore we had to find an alternative mode of transport . The drive from Cornwall meant several pit stops to stretch wings and legs, but we made it to the capital in one piece and boy, was it worth the journey! From pens and sticky notes to little folding contraptions and staple-less staplers that – if it wasn’t down to the little perspex window that shows you exactly how it works, you’d surely mark down as witchcraft – the show was a feast for the senses; a true stationery lovers’ paradise. Taking place during National Stationery Week (a fantastic campaign to ‘Get Britain Writing’ – you can read more here) some of the nicest little companies – including us *blush* – showcased the latest and best products on their stands. We proudly displayed next year’s diary (it’s the one before the big 50th edition – hold on to your hats!), the new, blue and just for you Acad-Pad 2014/15 and our new Dodo Mini Blank Book along with our range of greetings cards and even our very special (and freshly hatched) Dodo Jotter! The London Stationery Show is a very special place, with the best of the best stationery on display for all to see, touch, sniff and peck at. We went, we saw, we made new friends and showed the stationery world what Dodo Pad is all about. We only wish you could have all been there to have a good laugh with us on our stand. You’ll have to save your giggles for Lord Dodo’s 50th birthday bash and bonanza, which you’re all invited to! Details to follow in due course, stay in touch with us here, on Twitter or on Facebook! Or if you’d  like to be ‘Kept Posted’ on the #DodoJubilee celebrations sign up here.
