SM Stationery Art Fest 2017

Sunday, April 23, 2017

     Remember my post last year on SM Stationery ArtFest? This year, they made the event more exciting and invited a new roster of talented individuals to showcase their skills and share them to to all arts and crafts enthusiasts.

     I was once again invited to this year's launching leg of  SM Stationery ArtFest last April 19, 2017 at SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall. The conference was the official opening of the event to public and as one of the invited bloggers, I got the first dibs on what this 5-day event has to offer to aspiring and budding artists and to all individuals who love paper, pen, and art materials. Sharing with you below highlights of the launching and feature of SM Stationery products like Sharpie, Faber Castell, Elmer's, Simbalion, Pilot, M&G and Ifex.

     #SMStationeryArtFest is back at SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall and this year’s Art Fest highlights some of the popular art-ivities we’ve grown up to loving! What are your favorite arts and crafts activities when you're still young? I presume that some of these crafts include Calligraphy, Painting, Doodling, and Slime Making. This year, these activities will be more exciting because the invited young artists will give them a fresh spin.

     Like last year, the first thing I did when I arrived at the venue was to check the participating brand's booth. These co-presenters and event partners are the brands that we've laid our trust for years in giving us quality arts and craft materials. I'm sure that you're already familiar with them. So without further ado, let me present them to you one by one :)

1. Elmer's Glue

     The brand of glue that we all using since time immemorial. It's the first brand of glue and adhesives that my mom bought me when I was in elementary. As time passes by, this brand has inspired a lot of people to create, build and learn. Did you know that they're here for more than 65 years? Yes, Elmer's Products, Inc. has been providing creative adhesive solutions that support success and turn ideas into reality.

     Those glitter glues caught my attention. I love that they're available in different colors. Perfect for school projects that require glittery effect. No more messy glitters on hands and eyes!

2. Sharpie

     If you love colorful pens, Sharpie is the brand that caters to all the colors you need. The Sharpie permanent marker was the first pen-style permanent marker. Today it is the preferred autograph marker of athletes, celebrities, politicians and more. A high quality tip and superior ink allows users to write on virtually any surface – from wood and stone to plastic and metal and, of course, paper. Cool beans!

3. Faber Castell

     Let's talk about pencil and color or color and pencil. Whatever way you want it, there's always Faber Castell. Another brand that I'm sure you've been buying since childhood if you're into drawing and coloring is Faber Castell. This brand is making waves in the colored pencil industry. They are producing beautiful colored pencils in sleek attractive tin pencil cases.

4. Pilot

     This brand of ballpen will always be my first love. When I was in college, my favorite writing buddy was the Pilot G-Tech Sign Pen 0.3mm :) Pilot is one of the trusted ball pen brands and was also there to introduce new writing products that will take writing further. Introducing Pilot Frixion.

     When the SA handed me this gel ink pen and told me that it's erasable, I was like "ohhh" then wrote my website in a piece of paper. In a back and forth stroke, you'll see a part of what I've written and erased. Fantastic!

5. M&G Stationery

     First time I heard this brand and from what I saw in their booth, they are carrying erasable gel pens too but in fun and exciting designs. They are also offering school and office supplies plus other writing and art materials.

6. IFEX Fine Papers

     Last but not the least- IFEX Paper or International Fine Exchange Paper. Drawing, coloring, doodling, and calligraphy will not be complete without a canvass which mostly are made of paper. All drawing starts in a piece of paper right? IFEX aims to improve product offering to suit all your specialty paper needs, to be a reliable paper consultant and to give better customer service.

     Aside from the brands above, other arts and crafts stuff were also on display during the launch. There were so many cute writing pens, pencil cases, pouches, envelops, journals, notebooks, stickers, and materials used in making scrap books, to-do list, diaries, and a whole lot more!
