Maped Helix Set to Launch Innovative Blazer Buddy

By Emily Peagram 05 Jan 2021

Leading stationery manufacturer, Maped Helix, is leading the way with an innovative product that many parents will appreciate - the Oxford Blazer Buddy.

With some children opting to use their inside pocket as a makeshift pencil case, plenty of parents across the UK will have come across a ruined school blazer or two over the years, particularly from regular rips and ink leaks from pens.

Aware of this ongoing problem, Maped Helix has created the Oxford Blazer Buddy which sits perfectly inside all blazer pockets and therefore protects school uniforms. The Blazer Buddy is a protective, clear case which sits perfectly inside all blazer pockets, the handy top opening zip maintains total accessibility and holds all the essential stationery required. The Blazer Buddy comes complete with two Oxford black ballpoint pens, two eraser tipped HB pencils, a pencil sharpener and a 15cm/6” ruler.

Gray Richmond, Managing Director at Maped Helix, said: “This product has the potential to save parents’ money on replacement blazers so we are pleased that we have been able to find a solution with the launch of the Blazer Buddy.

“This has been designed with teenagers in mind, from the logo and packaging to the actual Blazer Buddy product. We totally appreciate that some teenagers don’t want to carry around bags full of equipment, so hopefully this product offers the best of both worlds, where children are more comfortable and parents don’t have to worry about additional costs each term.”

Maped Helix is a British company which has been synonymous with the stationery world for over 130 years. Combining tradition with innovation, it has a wide range of home, school and office stationery that is distributed in 125 countries.
