If the dizzying collections of stationery supplied by Hong Kong’s megastores prove too much to handle, then Muji may offer a bit of calm for you. Known for its minimalist designs, this Japanese brand does not mess around when it comes to its stationery. Many of its products, such as its planners and notebooks, are made of recycled materials too, so you can shop without feeling like you’ve destroyed a whole forest in the process.

With locations at almost every major mall in Hong Kong, you’ve probably found yourself pulled in by Log-on’s cheery decor before. Packed to the brim with stationery, toys, lifestyle products, beauty supplies and travel accessories, Log-on is nothing but a joy to walk through. You’ll find things you didn’t even know you needed, like washi tapes, polaroid cameras, air fresheners and our personal favourite, SMISKI figurines (glowing human-shaped creatures that you can place around your room, for no reason other than that they look cute).

Log-on, multiple locations including Basement 1, Times Square, 1 Matheson Street, Causeway Bay, 2736 3866

For all things K-pop, look no further than Cool Point. Located at Mira Place in Tsim Sha Tsui, this lifestyle and stationery store stocks a wide range of well-known Korean brands, including Artbox, Indigo, Flying Whales and Knock Your Life.

Toolss, Shop 2, G/F, Fook Tin Building, 38 Wai Lun Street, Shek Kip Mei, 3954 5135

Kikki K

You’d think the novelty would’ve worn off by now, but years after Kikki K’s arrival in Hong Kong, we’re still digging its Scandi-chic vibes. Instantly recognisable by its pastel aesthetic, the brand provides minimalist calendars, yearly planners and a unique offering of happiness and gratitude journals. Make sure to pay the store a visit come Christmas time, as it releases a stunning festive collection every year.

Kikki K, multiple locations including HOK43-44, Hong Kong Station, Central, 2812 1900

Back to School: Top 10 Stationery Shops in Hong Kong

It’s that time of year again. Wipe your tears of sadness (or perhaps joy?) and kiss your kids goodbye as they once again embark on an adventurous academic year. With new friends, new teachers, and new knowledge on the horizon, it’s only fair that your little ones are geared up with new stationery too, right? Well, you’re in luck, because we’ve rounded up the best stationery shops in Hong Kong to fill up those pencil cases and backpacks with all the goodies your kids will need. We promise we won’t tell if you sneak in a few items for yourself too!

There is no messing about when it comes to Muji. If keeping things to a minimal is what you’re after, their simple and straightforward stationery is the perfect solution amongst what’s available in Hong Kong.

Perhaps Journalize can help with that. Conveniently located near Victoria Park in Causeway Bay, this is a small and independent shop that has a variety of rare stationery products imported from all over the world, with a large focus on handwriting tools and materials.

Slow Hong Kong: Stationery Shops

Whatever the country, whatever the neighbourhood, there is one spot I always seek out: stationery stores. I know I’ll find everything I need to write, scribble, record or erase, everything I need to cut and paste. Whether you’re a school kid or an office worker, shopkeeper or start-up entrepreneur, student, retired, you’ll find something to note your projects and memories, to stop time in order to save something, start something, dream about something. The stationery store is a promise.

Stationery stores are starting to resemble each other from one country to the next –  globalisation has not spared this particular sector. When local touches manage to survive, they are all the more touching for it: a funny format, strange paper, odd colour. This particular Frenchwoman marvels at the discovery that no, not all paper is A4, not all pencils are HB, not all envelopes have the same acrid taste of glue.

Here, in the country that invented paper, in the face of inexorable digitalisation, you can still find neighbourhood stationery stores in Central, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei. Take a minute to wander into one of these boutiques with shelves packed with local curiosities from floor to ceiling. These local products are often hidden behind newcomers from Japan — the standard for quality and innovation — or South Korea, another great country for dreamers. Look beyond these first colourful shelves to find treasures that take you back to the everyday life of the Fragrant Harbour, past and present.

First are those notebooks that allow you to imagine the endless hours dedicated by schoolchildren to learning the vast number of traditional Chinese characters, which unlike those in mainland China, have not been simplified. Then there are the books devoted to learning the Roman alphabet, lower and upper cases, block letters and cursive, which you can find for less than HK$2 in the markets of Sham Shui Po. The pastel hues of these notebook covers can be found on books filled with space for music, too.

Some pencils proudly declare their origins, such as Chung Hwa, a brand made by the China First Pencil Company in Shanghai. Their Hong Kong counterparts are particularly seductive, with ancient Chinese proverbs etched in golden characters on a black background.

Next to them are pretty brushes destined for calligraphy, with bamboo stems and tips made from horse or rabbit hair (if they aren’t synthetic and made of plastic) which brings to mind the traditional way of writing in this region.

I have a weakness for envelopes made from thick paper and sealed with twine, an alternative to less poetic glue, or the sad stickers that seal the white envelopes we have in France. Do you close them with one round of twine, two rounds, a figure-eight or a double figure eight? It depends on the recipient!

When Chinese New Year is drawing near, red lai see packets take the forefront, offered in different formats representing all the different types of bamboo and Double Happiness symbols. This is the stationery shop’s moment in the spotlight, an annual occurrence that reminds us that, yes, we really are in Hong Kong.

Take a look at the shelves where professional materials are stocked: different log books, bill books and receipt books take you back to an era when handwritten material had no alternative. To a Westerner, a Hong Kong-style bill is an astonishingly poetic thing when you see a merchant opening his book, hastily scribbling a price beneath elegantly-drawn Chinese characters and stamping it before handing you this sheet of paper that is almost worthy of being framed. You can imagine this artisan conscientiously filling out his sober black-covered log book at the end of every day.

The shelf of stamps, by contrast, gives you pause. Every possible message seems to be accounted for: Urgent, Unpaid, Overpayment, Top Secret – written in Chinese or Roman characters, they absolve you have any need for handwriting.

The recent move of Stanley’s most comprehensive stationery store to Sai Wan Ho is a sign of just how difficult it is to run this kind of business. Like all traditional enterprises, they are struggling to survive in the face of high rents and online shopping. In 2000, there were 2,360 stationery shops in Hong Kong, employing 7,320 people, whereas today there are just 4,490 people working in 1,460 shops.

That said, the efforts of a new wave of designers, like the founders of Ditto Ditto’s letterpress studio or the architects behind Blank, a contemporary stationery store in Shek Tong Tsui, offer hope that the paper civilisation has not yet written its last word, and is not destined to serve only nostalgic purposes. Notebooks, pencils, envelopes – the vitality of these everyday objects offer a social and poetic connection to one another that digital communication can never replace. At once functional and aesthetic, they facilitate Hong Kong’s economic hyperactivity and brighten up the city’s daily life.

Here are some of the stationery shops I visited while researching this column:

Craft supplies: 10 Shopping Places Every Craft Lover in Hong Kong Should Know!


If you don’t know where to buy craft supplies in Hong Kong, I hope the list below will help you find what you need.
In most of my posts I try to give you shops recommendations, but I have realized it would be great to summarize all these shopping places in one post. So here we are: I have gathered below my top 10 places to buy craft supplies in Hong Kong!


1. Sham Shui Po



This is my number one place for craft supplies shopping. I must say I am a bit obsessed about this place, as going to SSP for a craft lover is a bit like entering the Willy Wonka chocolate factory! This place sells so many different kinds of items: beads, leather, fabric, ribbons, buttons, and all the corresponding DIY accessories & tools … I still manage to discover new stores every time I go there!
So if there is one place you should visit for craft supplies during your stay in Hong Kong, go to Sham Shui Po.
Here are a few DIY posts made from supplies found in SSP with some shops address:

Actually most of the craft supplies used in my posts are coming from there!

2. CN Square

503 Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon
It is one of the largest stationery store in Hong Kong with 5 floors full of arts and crafts items.
You can find pretty much everything you need there for paper related crafts: from origami paper, any kind of paint, paper, boards, punches and some craft supplies as well.


3.  The Artland

3/F, Lockhart Center, 301 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Similar to CN square but with maybe a slightly smaller selection of art supplies: paper, pens, paint, brushes and so on.


4. Living Plaza

There are many living plaza shops in Hong Kong. They belong to the brand AEON.
The particularity of these shops is to sell everything at 12HKD (or almost everything – some items are sold at a higher price which is usually indicated in big). These shops used to be known as “Jusco 10$ stores.”
The two shops I know are quite big:

  • 2/F Tai Hing Gardens Phase II, Tuen Mun, New Territories
  • 3/F Chong Hing Square, 601 Nathan Road, Mong Kok, Kowloon.

You can find the full list of living plaza shops & opening hours here. I am sure you will find one near your place.
I guess the variety of items you can find in these shops depends on the shop’s size.
I have found some great deals there on crochet hooks, paint, yarn, needles, buttons, origami paper…




They have also a large selection of tools & accessories: hammer, pliers, sanding paper…


You can find also cheap glasses, tableware, jars, home decoration…


5. Log On


There are also a few shops in Hong Kong. They belong to City Super. This store sells mainly a collection of trendy and fun products that some would consider gadgets but they also have a selection of craft supplies and stationery that is worth a look.
In particular, they have a great selection of washi tape.


They also sell some cotton fat quarters, gift boxes, and fabric stickers from the Korean brand Dailylike which are so cute! I have used some in my DIY square envelope leather pouch.


I have been to these two shops so far:

  • Tuen Mun Town Plaza, Phase 1 Level 2, Shop 2251, Tuen Mun, New Territories
  • Gateway Arcade level 3, Shop 3202, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

You can find the complete list of shops & opening hours here.

6. Popular Bookstore

There is always a nice corner in Popular Bookstores with a good selection of stationery but also some art & craft supplies.
I know these two shops:

  • Tuen Mun Town Plaza, Phase 1 Level 2, Shop 2192, Tuen Mun, New Territories
  • Olympian City 3, UG88, Upper Ground Floor, Kowloon

You can find the complete list of Popular Bookstore shops & opening hours here.


7. The Commercial Press

This book and stationery store is located 9 Yee Wo Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.
They sell many Chinese and English books. At the basement, you will find a selection of stationery, art supplies and creative handicraft products such as beautiful origami paper.
You can find the complete list of shops & opening hours here.


8. The Crafties

The crafties is a creative workspace that I have found on the web. I have never been there myself but the experience of the Sassy reporter from this post seems very pleasant.
They propose some interesting workshops such as teddy making, crochet, etc.
And they also have a craft supplies store. I do not know the extent of the selection provided there so feel free to leave your feedback below.
This workspace and retail space is located 1/F Sing Kui Commercial Building, 27 Des Voeux Road West, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

9. Artsman

Flat A, 2/F Kiu Hong Mansion, 3 Tin Lok Lane, Wanchai, Hong Kong

Another stationery and art supplies shop with a selection of DIY craft supplies. I have never been there myself but it is widely recommended on the web. Let me know what you think about it!

10. Your local stationery shop

There are many small stationery shops in Hong Kong. I am sure you will find one of those small shops next to your place. The prices may be more on the higher side but it is always useful if you do not have time to go to other bigger shops. The range of products varies a lot from one shop to another.

Travel to Zhuhai, Macau and Hong Kong with CACTUS

The key partners of the company had the opportunity to extend the summer and enjoy an unforgettable journey.Several wonderful days from October 9 to 12 allowed vacationers to visit the factory, enjoy the views of Macau and the ancient architecture, catch their luck at the casino, visit the colorful fishing village, stroll through the night Hong Kong and enjoy exotic local cuisine.

The city of Zhuhai – translated from Chinese as “Pearl Sea”, received guests from distant Russia with its usual cordiality. On the first day of the trip, the group went on an excursion to the largest industrial park of the Ninestar company, and was able not only to see how our products are assembled, but also to assemble the CACTUS cartridge with their own hands.Industrial Park is the largest high-tech complex in Southeast Asia. On the territory of more than 250,000 square meters, 400,000 square meters of production space, office buildings have been erected, and the company has more than 20,000 employees.

The complex unites under one roof the production of all types of compatible consumables for various printing devices, inks and chips for cartridges, as well as printers and MFPs of the Pantum trademark.

The factory did not leave anyone indifferent: advanced technologies, highly qualified personnel, a high level of management – these are the main aspects of the production of our products.

The next day, the participants of the trip went to Macau – an autonomous territory within the PRC, a former Portuguese colony. This was a great opportunity to enjoy the views of the city, the architecture of the ancient temple complex of Macau, and visit the ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral. The picturesque center of Macau during the Portuguese era reflects the clash of European and Chinese cultures and values. After the walk, the travelers visited the famous restaurant of national cuisine, where they could enjoy Portuguese and Chinese cuisine.

In the evening, all vacationers could try their luck in the legendary Venice casino.

On the third day of the trip, the participants of the trip went to Hong Kong – the financial heart of Southeast Asia. There they were waiting for an unusual excursion to the fishing village of Aberdeen, the opportunity to observe the life of fishermen and residents with their own eyes, to taste dishes of Cantonese cuisine. Such a concentration of oriental flavor nowadays is not found anywhere else in Hong Kong.

In the evening, travelers plunged into the nightlife of Hong Kong, with its lights, laser shows, promenade walks and the opportunity to vividly discuss and share the accumulated emotions.

This was not only an educational trip, but also an opportunity to plunge into the mysterious world of such a different oriental culture. The travelers were charged with positive emotions, which, we hope, will be enough to conquer new peaks and participate in future projects.

magazine “Secret of the firm” No. 11 (194) 03/26/2007

Dmitry Beloglazov created the most recognizable brand in the faceless sea of ​​Russian chancellery – Erich Krause.But over time, it lagged behind the market leaders. To catch up, he must move global companies.

“Which archive folders do you use? What are your paper clips called? And the stapler? What, do not even remember the name of your marker? ” – Dmitry Beloglazov, president of Erich Krause , tortures me. I honestly try to remember, but it doesn’t work.

More than 15 thousand items of various office supplies are sold in Russia – it is very difficult to choose a “favorite” brand from this mass.And there are very few promoted brands here. As Sergey Bobrikov, general director of the leader of the stationery market, Komus, explains, the specifics are such that buyers choose, first of all, a store, and not a stationery manufacturer. Therefore, it is not necessary to promote brands of specific goods.

Beloglazov at one time did not agree with this – and managed to make a real breakthrough on the Russian stationery market with his own, as he jokingly says, Erich Krause brand.He combined office small things under one brand and achieved widespread fame. In March this year, the Association of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Stationery and Office Products of Russia conducted a survey among the leading players in this industry – and they recognized Erich Krause as the most popular stationery brand in Russia (more than half of the 55 companies surveyed consider the brand the leader in consumer recognition).

Beloglazov started as a wholesale supplier of stationery from Southeast Asia, but gradually turned into a manufacturer – since last year his company Office Premier (which is formally considered a dealer of Erich Krause, but in fact owns this brand) makes 90% of its turnover at Erich Krause (the rest falls on the school office, which is produced by the “Premier Office” under the “cartoon” brands).These are folders, archive files, paper clips, notepads, staplers, hole punches and much more. The promoted brand is sold on average 10-15% more expensive than its no-name competitors, although it is 20-30% cheaper than Western brands – Esselte, Legamaster, Leitz, etc. “Erich Krause is a real phenomenon,” admits the director of the Russian representative office the world’s largest stationery manufacturer, Esselte Sergey Krymov. – A local player has managed to achieve higher recognition than global brands. “

Now Beloglazov is planning to repeat his success in the most prestigious segment of the market – he is going to squeeze out transnational players in the niche of writing utensils. Over the past year, pens and markers have already brought him $ 10 million, now he is going to double his turnover. The task is not easy.

Office Premier was founded by Dmitry Beloglazov in 1994. Initially, she specialized in the wholesale supply of office supplies from Southeast Asia. However, in 1997 the company launched its own production of paper products “Polygraphics” in Moscow, and in 1999 opened a factory of stationery made of plastic “Premier Plast” in Yoshkar-Ola.Since 1998 Dmitry Beloglazov began to place orders at Asian factories and sell this stationery under the Erich Krause brand in Russia and abroad; by 2006, production under his own brand took about 90% of Office Premier’s turnover (all revenue – $ 100 million last year ). The remaining 10% is school stationery, which the company produces under licenses from Western animation studios.

Eastern Course
Dmitry Beloglazov, a graduate of the Physics Department of Moscow State University, made his initial capital in the early 1990s, trading in commercial real estate.But the real estate business became more and more criminalized, and the entrepreneur decided to do something else. The search for a new niche led him to the stationery market. “It was a chaotic world – many small players trading the same product. Why not try to put things in order here? ” – he recalls.

In 1994, Beloglazov registered the Office of Premier company, which was engaged in the wholesale of stationery. Most of the clerks in the mid-1990s worked with European suppliers.“On the boxes of European brands, we saw the inscription ‘Made in China.’ But there were no recognizable stationery brands on the market at that time. So why overpay European companies if no one knows them in Russia anyway? ” – Beloglazov explains the actions of that time. The Premier Office began supplying goods from Asia at prices 30-50% lower than those of companies that worked with Europe. Subsequently, competitors also switched to Asian manufacturers, and the prices of “Premier Office” caught up with other players.Now about 70% of all office supplies to the Russian market are supplied from Asia.

Beloglazov was the first supplier to decide to acquire his own production. The fact is that, unlike pens, staplers, paper clips and similar “little things”, it is unprofitable to import some goods of relatively large dimensions. “Take, for example, an archive folder,” says Beloglazov. “It costs a dollar, and it will cost another dollar to transport it more than 1000 km. It is logical to locate production closer to consumers ”.

In 1997, Office Premier bought a site in Moscow and invested about $ 7 million in launching the Polygraphic factory for the production of archival folders, notebooks, notebooks, etc. Two years later, the company spent another $ 5 million on the construction of a second plant. The choice fell on Yoshkar-Ola – not very far from the capital, and real estate prices are much lower. The Premier Plast factory was opened there, specializing in plastic products: paper trays, trash cans and so on. Production experiments allowed Office Premier to offer the market cheaper products.For example, archive folders then cost 50-60% less than the market average.

The company now occupies about 20% of this market, selling folders for $ 7-8 million a year. But even here Beloglazov was not alone – in 2000, Esselte launched a similar production in Russia.

German with Russian roots
For production projects “Office Premier” needed his own brand. Beloglazov did not become original – by that time, pseudo-European brands had already appeared on the market, created by Russian enterprises for the Russian market (for example, household appliances Binaton and Scarlett).The head of the Premier’s Office went the same way. By order of the company, the Megapro marketing agency has developed the “German” brand Erich Krause. “This choice was based on our observations that the German office is considered the most reliable among consumers,” explains Beloglazov.

Some clients are still convinced that they are dealing with an international corporation, whose interests in Russia are represented by the Premier Office. Although the company does not make secrets of its origin (unlike, for example, Bork, which is also positioned as a German brand – see. SF No. 04/2007), does not advertise this information unnecessarily. “When we started working in the regions, many retail representatives told us: what is Esselte – another China, but Erich Krause is a real German brand,” says Sergey Krymov.

Erich Krause initially accounted for only about 20% of the company’s sales; Beloglazov continued to import the rest of the products from Asia. Until the 1998 crisis struck – in the midst of the season, in August, when vacations end and offices start ordering new consignments of stationery, sales fell tenfold.The problems forced the businessman to look for new growth points. Beloglazov decided to conceptually change the business – to gradually curtail trade in foreign brands, and on the basis of Erich Krause to create a wide range of stationery. “It was bold,” recalls Irina Petrukhina, an analyst with the OfficeMart Internet project. – When a consumer walks into a stationery store, he finds himself in a world of many unfamiliar brands. And Erich Krause offered a turnkey solution – one brand for all office small things. ”

Beloglazov decided to place orders at the same enterprises in Southeast Asia, where he used to just buy goods.The production of “small things” on their own sites, according to his calculations, did not pay off. He reasoned that the promoted brand in the office “trifle” market would allow him to occupy a relatively free niche in the middle price range between cheap unbranded Asian office supplies and expensive European brands. According to Maxim Seleznev, General Director of Proburo , the mid-price niche is still the most demanded on the market.

Office Premier Company:
– was the first in the Russian stationery market to create its own trademark Erich Krause;
– began to actively advertise it in intellectual programs on television;
– entered the promising segments of office hardware and writing utensils.

TV Amateur
Unlike Proburo, Regent and other competitors, Premier Office did not open branches and representative offices in different cities, but relied on an independent network of dealers. “We do not want to compete with our partners in the regions,” Beloglazov explains this step. As a result, the company now has about a thousand dealers, some of which sell only the Erich Krause brand.

Simultaneously with the development of the distribution system since 2000, Office Premier began to actively advertise its brand.”They were the first clerks to appear on television,” says Irina Petrukhina. “They participate more in exhibitions and actively supply large stores with BTL materials.”

Dmitry Beloglazov judged that the company’s advertising budget is not so large (about $ 1-2 million in the early 2000s) and decided to focus on intelligent television broadcasts. In his opinion, the target audience of these programs is made up of people with higher education. The company sponsored several programs (for example, “100 to 1” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”), but in the end settled on “Svoi Game”, the host of which Petr Kuleshov became the face of the brand.Other advertising media are used by Erich Krause only occasionally and, as a rule, in specific regions together with dealers.

But in any case, Office Premier is now the largest advertiser in this market. For example, in July-December 2006 TNS Gallup AdFact counted 60 advertising outlets for Erich Krause on television, while Proburo had only 22, and Komus had 17 (these two companies were also advertised in outdoor advertising and print media). Of the foreign players on the Russian advertising field, only the Waterman brand was visible with 18 outdoor exits during the same period.According to Beloglazov, now he spends 3-4% of his turnover on advertising. This is one and a half to two times more than the market average, – as Sergey Krymov says, advertising budgets of large players make up no more than 2% of their turnover.

The “bad” example turned out to be contagious – after the “Office Prime Minister” competitors began to develop their own brands. For example, Proburo launched in 2000 the Proff (office assortment) and Boom (children’s stationery) brands, which now account for 40% of the company’s sales.And “Komus” began to produce writing accessories “Attache”, paper products “M-factory” and other goods. But at the same time, no one stopped selling other people’s brands, which means that part of the marketing budget is directed to promoting the brand of the company itself. “Beloglazov does not need to invest in the Office Premier brand, it is enough to achieve recognition of Erich Krause, while we need to advertise both Proburo and Proff,” explains Maxim Seleznev. In general, Komus advertises only the parent brand, promoting its retail network, not its products.

The volume of the Russian market of stationery in 2006 amounted to $ 1.2-1.5 billion. On average, it is growing by 15-20% per year. The main sales are for paper and paper products (about 60%), writing utensils (17%), folders (14%). The rest of the segments are numerous, but individually small – sales of buttons and paper clips, paper holders, hole punches, staplers, etc. do not exceed 1-2% of the market.
For the office, there are three main distribution channels – specialized retail outlets, direct orders from offices and non-specialized retail (children’s, bookstores, newsagents, food hyper and supermarkets).The main players in this market often combine wholesale and retail trade, corporate supply to offices and production of goods under their own brands. Many players work in related markets – for example, Komus produces packaging for food products, Ekort – receipt tape, Regent – scratch tape. Only the Premier Office, which has concentrated all its efforts on promoting the Erich Krause stationery brand, is notable for its constancy.

Brand a burden
Beloglazov’s marketing efforts led to mixed results.The fact that his company managed to create a well-known and popular brand is unconditionally recognized in the market. But, having refused to sell other people’s brands, Dmitry Beloglazov could not offer the same wide range as that of other players. As a result, the Premier Office is developing more slowly than its competitors. For example, Komus’s revenue increased from $ 267 million in 2003 to $ 591 million in 2006, while Office Premier’s turnover grew over the same period from $ 70 million to $ 100 million. four and a half times, but also ahead of the Premier Office.In 2003, Proburo’s turnover was $ 25 million, and in the past it was $ 113 million. According to Komus, the Premier Office in 2006 is in fifth place in terms of revenue – after Komus, Ekort, Regent “And” Proburo “.

The company could get ahead of the foreign expansion that Beloglazov has been trying to carry out for the past three years. He opened Erich Krause’s sales divisions in Latvia, Germany, Spain and Hong Kong, and in 2004 surprised all Russian players by purchasing a Norcar archive cardboard folder factory in Spain for the local market.The Spaniards hoped to gain 3 million euros for a production with a turnover of 10 million euros, but Beloglazov managed to save money on the purchase in a very original way, for which the Spaniards hardly liked him much. “We found so many violations, ‘gray’ schemes and the like in production that we offered the owner of the company two options. We pass all these documents to the local prosecutor’s office, or he makes concessions, and we clean out these Augean stables, ”says Beloglazov. The concessions turned out to be more than impressive: the Premier Office paid an anecdotal sum of 1 euro for Norcar.

However, the purchase still did not benefit Beloglazov’s company. Now he is preparing to close the factory, explaining this by the high cost of labor in Spain. So so far, the expansion to the West can hardly be called successful. Now Dmitry Beloglazov claims that sales abroad are stable and amount to about $ 10 million annually, but last year in an interview with SF he estimated the company’s export turnover at $ 30 million (see SF No. 09/2006). “In Europe, we got into a cold shower.Strong stationery brands have already formed there, ”says President Erich Krause.

Beloglazov connects his further plans mainly with the Russian market, where he is actively capturing new segments. For example, back in 2000, Beloglazov bought licenses for the most popular cartoon characters from Western studios and actually monopolized this segment of the school office market. Periodically, additional funds have to be invested in the project: the rights to use images from new hits are bought (among the latter – “Season of the Hunt”).The businessman estimates his costs as a whole at “several million dollars”, and the turnover of the “Premier’s Office” direction is $ 10 million annually.

Another promising area is the “iron” project. In 2006, Office Premier was the first Russian player to launch the production of a line of punchers and staplers (now their sales are reaching $ 5-7 million). But the real growth driver should be a collection of writing supplies. This is the most capacious segment of the market, which accounts for 17% of the total turnover of Russian office supplies in money.“But also the most competitive,” warns Irina Petrukhina. “Unlike the market for folders or paper clips, there are popular brands here: Bic, Parker, Waterman.” So Dmitry Beloglazov runs the risk of being under a cold shower already at home.
