Collins celebrates a bicentennial of diary making with its 200th Anniversary this year!
A brand steeped in Scottish heritage, and a rich history dating back to its humble beginnings in 1819 when founder William Collins set up his first printing press in the Candleriggs street of Glasgow, Scotland. Collins has since grown over the centuries to become a global stationery and lifestyle brand, touching lives across the globe with quality stationery that is a conduit for self-expression and authenticity.
Throughout the years, Collins has relentlessly pushed the boundaries of design and innovation by continually evolving and exploring new and creative ways to meet consumers’ needs. As a passionate stationery maker renowned for its quality, Collins not only creates fundamental tools, from diaries to notebooks, journals and other stationery, the brand also offers consumers in a wide variety of cover material, design and layout to cater to all lifestyle preferences.
Commenting on the milestone, Ms Connie Chan, Executive Chairlady and Chief Executive Officer said: “Looking back on our first 200 years, our passion has never wavered and we’ve been steadfast in creating quality stationery for authentic self-expressions. We have designed numerous organisational tools that improve the daily lives of our customers, and encourage them to let their creativity flow. As we write a new chapter for the next two centuries, we’ll continue to evolve to suit consumers’ preferences and attitudes while always staying true to our Scottish roots.
Be it a diary, notebook or desk planner, every Collins product inspires self-expression and is delightfully pragmatic. After all, Collins is the conduit of what flows from within.”
With presence across the world, in the UK, Australia, Singapore, Japan and more, Collins aims to introduce its quality stationeries and lifestyle products to more consumers, and expand further in Asia, Europe and Australasia.
