Rediscovering Scribe: Bringing back the passion for writing

Rediscovering Scribe: Bringing back the passion for writing

I discovered I had the knack for writing back in my grade school years where our teacher wanted to have someone join the Filipino Feature Writing Contest (Filipino was also my favorite subject back then). So she asked all of us to write something about a certain topic (which I forgot) and when we passed all our work and she read them one by one, she approached me and said that I can write. I was astounded because among twenty students, she chose me. She made me write tons of feature articles, polished them, and prepared me for the contest. That was then I realized that I loved to write. Fast forward today, I still write, but in the form of blogs. When I was invited to the Scribe Media Launch, I got excited knowing that they specialize in writing essentials. I really do miss the traditional form of writing and I fully support Scribe's passion in bringing us back to the times when we only had pen and paper.

Today, we live in a world where the digital age is already part of our daily lives, and what once was the primary means of communication, writing, is slowly becoming a forgotten tool. People are now able to share their thoughts instantaneously on their smartphones, tablets, and laptops with a single swipe of their fingers. Now, people have gotten used to writing their thoughts through chats, statuses, tweets, and blogs.

Scribe, which was formerly known as Scribe Writing Essentials desires to shift this trend and revive writing with pen and paper through their carefully curated products. They started as a specialty store offering a wide range of products showcasing classic and premium quality pens, stationery, journals, and notebooks. Scribe became known for its wide range of internationally well-known fountain pen selection such as Pelikan, Sailor Japan, Platinum Japan, TWSBI, Kaweco, J. Herbin, and Noodler’s among others. It has taken pleasure in sourcing new and exciting premium writing products and accessories that continues to capture the interest of its discerning customers.

And now writing has taken yet another path here in the Philippines with the resurgence of calligraphy and other handwritten artforms. Artists and enthusiasts are now indulging in doodling, sketching, using a brush and dipping pens to create impressive works of art.

With Scribe's relaunching, they still offer writing instruments but is adding more accessories to enhance the whole writing experience. They recently introduced niche brands such as Tools to Live By, Hightide, Penco and Nahe. Scribe also aims to reach out to the younger market, specifically the millennials, and encourage them to start enjoying the art of writing.

With this in mind, Scribe has adapted a new look which reflects a younger feel and more welcoming ambiance but still aims to bring back the passion in the traditional form of writing. Scribe wants to bring us back to the time when there was only pen and paper.
