And to mark the occasion, graphologist Jean Elliott will offering visitors the chance to have their handwriting analysed on the day.
Jean, who is a member of the British Institute of Graphology, said:
Handwriting is unique to the individual, so an analysis of your script is able to offer a fascinating insight into your personality and character. “All I need to carry out the analysis is a short sample of a person’s handwriting – it’s always great fun and an enjoyable experience for people taking part, to take a look behind something we do every day of our lives.
Graphology is an ancient form of analysis and anyone who pays The Pen Shop’s new store a visit at next Thursday’s opening event will have the opportunity to discover the meaning behind their handwriting. Pens and paper will of course be on hand for anyone who would like to take part!
Colin McClymont, Managing Director at The Pen Shop, said:
Writing has been The Pen Shop’s passion for over 150 years – it’s a totally individual form of expression, one steeped in tradition and putting pen to paper is a magical experience. We hope lots of people will come along to the opening event to discover the hidden meaning behind their handwritten words.
