Era Award for Maped Helix Gel Crayons

Maped Helix is celebrating after winning the coveted General Classroom Resources award at this year’s Education Resources Awards (ERA) with its popular Color’Peps Gel Crayons

Deemed the most prestigious awards event in the education sector throughout the UK, the ERA celebrate outstanding success amongst suppliers and teaching professionals. Maped Helix’s Color’Peps Gel Crayons were announced as the winner in the General Classroom Resources category, after being recognised for exceptional quality and innovative design, contributing to educational and creative services across the country.

Carefully considered for practicality and creativity, the award-winning Gel Crayons are designed with a triangular shape for good grip and an innovative twist handle design to protect hands from colour marks. The soft watercolour gel crayons glide smoothly across the page with ultra-bright, super-pigmented colours for outstanding coverage and finish.

Maped Helix is dedicated to offering best-in-class stationery essentials that spark creativity in younger children and encourage them to learn, draw, colour and invent. The ERA award is a testament to this commitment and innovation.

Gray Richmond, managing director at Maped Helix, comments: 'We are delighted to have won the prestigious accolade at this year’s ERA for our innovative Color’Peps Gel Crayons. The award demonstrates our focus on producing the best quality stationery for creative learning and expression, and so to be recognised as one of the leading brands in the industry is a real honour. We look forward to continuing to contribute to the educational sector with our exciting new ranges launching this year.'
