Big Dreams and Small Beginnings

Welcome to Speciality Papers, the result of one woman’s vision to provide a more personalized and flexible approach to the school stationery market.

In 2000, Ronel Stevens started this business from her garage and today we have expanded to include our own modern showroom in Hyslop Road, a dedicated warehouse in Greyling Street as well as an online ordering platform.

Our success is a testament to Ronel’s business model, built on a solid work ethic, a strong emphasis on customer service, and the unwavering support of our loyal customers and valued suppliers. Since our inception, we have grown exponentially, and our achievements have not gone unnoticed. In 2009, we were voted “Nedbank Small Business of the Year” at a function hosted by the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Commerce, and in recent years, Ronel has been recognized as a top entrepreneur in the Businesswomen’s Association of South Africa’s “Regional Business Achiever Awards”.

At Speciality Papers, we are committed to providing high-quality stationery products and unparalleled customer service. We take pride in being a part of the Pietermaritzburg business community and look forward to continuing to serve our customers for years to come.

Warehouse and Stock

We’ll get it if we haven’t already got it

At our company, we strive to make the process of ordering our extensive range of over 8,000 products as seamless and efficient as possible. With our warehouse in town and state-of-the-art Point-of-Sales system, our customers now have easy access to our complete inventory.

All orders are promptly processed, located within our warehouse, where they are packed by our dedicated team of trustworthy packers.

Should any item be temporarily out of stock, our team immediately places an order with our reliable suppliers. We follow up on these back-orders on a daily basis to ensure that our clients receive their desired products as soon as possible.

At our company, we believe that efficient service and attention to detail are key to building lasting relationships with our valued customers. We look forward to providing you with the best possible service and quality products.

We offer personalised packages.  From back-to-school packs, pre-packs for every grade to bulk orders.

These include:

  • Student Stationery Packs
  • Art Packs
  • Technical Drawing Packs
  • Bulk Packs per grade per teacher

At Speciality, we are committed to providing our customers with competitive pricing and quick turnaround times for all their stationery needs.

To help you plan ahead for the upcoming year, we offer a free quotation service for a list of stationery requirements, which can be sent to us as early as August the preceding year. While some items may need to be ordered well in advance of the busy “Back-2-School” season, we make every effort to ensure that orders placed early are given priority and enjoy a speedy turnaround time.
