Manuscript Pen Company launch online campaign for calligraphy day.

Calligraphy brand, Manuscript Pen Company, is encouraging people across the UK to put pen to paper on August 11 for World Calligraphy Day and share their favourite words with others to spread joy and positivity.

Founded by Manuscript Pen Company in 2017, World Calligraphy Day brings experts and novices across the world together to discuss, practice, learn and celebrate the art of calligraphy and creative lettering.

Being held this year on Wednesday August 11, Manuscript is launching an online campaign to encourage people across the UK to write their favourite positive word and take photos of their handwritten creations and post to their social media channels using the hashtags #WorldCalligraphyDay and #SaySomethingSpecial, and tagging Manuscript Pen Company.

Following a challenging period in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and as the UK transitions out of lockdown, the campaign aims to build on this significant milestone and spread additional positivity and goodwill. Whether it’s ‘pride’ for the NHS, ‘love’ for others or ‘hope’ for the future, people can share their favourite handwritten words online with Manuscript. 

Charlie Stockbridge, managing director at Manuscript Pen Company, said, “We are incredibly proud to be the founders of World Calligraphy Day and to mark its fifth anniversary and build on the success of previous years. Following a challenging period for people across the globe due to the pandemic, it’s now more important than ever that we stay connected and spread positivity. Our latest campaign encourages people to do just that, and we’d like to see as many people as possible get on board. Whether it’s your favourite sounding word such as ‘serendipity’ or ‘nincompoop’ or something positive and particularly relevant to the pandemic, we hope to create positive memories as we continue to transition out of lockdown.”
