Celebrating National Left-Handers Day with STABILO

August 13, 2018

If you’re a left-hander, you’re automatically inducted into a private group that few are a part of. If you’re not left-handed, you can’t join, and you won’t be getting an invite anytime soon. Plain and simple. But in all reality, being left-handed can sometimes pose its own sets of challenges. You know what I’m talking about, right? Not being able to find scissors at art time, not having an extra glove available during baseball practice, and everything that you’ve just written in pen being smeared across the paper time and time again… For lefties, the struggle is real.

Rest assured that we 100% feel for you in some of these matters! And it seems the rest of the world does as well because there is actually a national day to respect and honour (kind of) those who are left-handed. Getting your own National Day is a small step in the right direction, but there are still other things that can be done!

Celebrating National Left-Handers Day with STABILO

There’s one company out there that hears your cries of pain and has an answer to some of those problems that left-handers continuously seem to have. STABILO has made it one of their priorities to create objects and items that don’t stop left-handers from joining in on the fun! STABILO left-handed stationery was created with every left-hander in mind! All of the items that they offer can be used to write, create or enhance your artistic abilities. 

No more cutting awkwardly with scissors that don’t fit properly or worrying about finding a pen or a pencil that writes well with the angle that you’re holding it. From this moment on, left-handers all over the world have options when it comes to being able to use items just as the rest of the right-handed population would! And if that isn’t a step in the right direction then I don’t know what is. 

Left-handed, not limited

Don’t look at you being left-handed as something that limits you and your success. Instead, think of it as being a unique advantage that you have over all the other MILLIONS of right-handers out there. You have the ability to write with your left hand, play sports with your left-hand, get creative and artistic with your left-hand, and smile and wave proudly showing off the fact that you’re proud of being a left-hander! 

Keep your voice strong and be a powerhouse for the other members of your left-handed community. The more vocal that you are about wanting products designed specifically for left-handers, the more likely it will happen. If you don’t tell people where the struggles lie, how can you expect anyone to take initiative to fix them? Be confident that left-handers deserve the use of common items as well, and start by showing support to those companies that are doing their best to make it happen.
