To celebrate the 40 year anniversary of the first Star Wars film, Maped Helix will be reproducing a selection of products from its original 1977 Helix Star Wars range.

Products in the Helix Star Wars anniversary range will feature the Star Wars 40th anniversary logo. They include a  Death Star pencil sharpener; the original maths set tin featuring the 1977 design but with modern day contents; a range of four pencil cases featuring hand-drawn artwork to represent different characters from the classic movies; the stormtrooper 30cm ruler; and a twelve pack of HB pencils featuring the Star Wars logo and “May The Force Be With You”. An anniversary collection set is also being produced and will contain all of the products in a gift pack.

Alongside the Helix Star Wars anniversary range, a collection of home and office products are being developed. This range will include staplers, hole punches and scissors.

“This is a brilliant opportunity to work with one of the greatest film franchises,” said Gray Richmond, managing director at Maped Helix. “Star Wars is a big part of the history of Helix and we have some fantastic products in the pipeline.”
