In an attempt to underline its status as a massive name in the stationery industry, Nuco is aiming to prove that size does indeed matter when it unveils a giant 4ft notepad, 300% larger than a standard A4 pad, which will be produced in the UK using Nuco International’s network of printers and finishers.
The official Guinness World Records adjudication will take place on April 26th at the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Center in Islington. The giant book will then take to the road, where it will travel from one end of the country to the other, with people invited to pen why #WritingMatters’ to them.
Nuco has been producing notebooks since 2008 – selling millions worldwide in the process – and was keen to create something unique to coincide with National Stationery Week from April 25 to May 1 2016.
Keith Matthews, Managing Director of Nuco said: “This is our second year as sponsors of National Stationery Week and we wanted to produce something that would capture imaginations and also demonstrate our ability to produce quality products no matter the parameters.
“We honestly thought that the manufacturing processes necessary for a 4ft pad would cause too many headaches for us to overcome. But we have negotiated one or two stumbling blocks to create this huge, bespoke product which we hope will live long in the memory and join the family of Guinness World Records title holders as a result.”
The record attempt will be the first of its kind made by a British company.
