What is there not to love about stationery?
I stumbled across the Papergang Stationery boxes last year, when the August box had the theme of fish. There was a discount on the first box, so I subscribed so I could see what was so great about these. I planned to unsubscribe, afterall, I had a great deal of stationery already.
Well, that was a year ago and whilst some of the boxes were not to my taste, there has been more great boxes than not great and I have remained subscribing.
Yesterday, the September box arrived and I thought that it might be fun to share the contents of the latest box.
Each box is decorated with the themed pattern for the month. On the front there is a tab which is pulled and then torn to enable easy opening. Ironically, this was the only box that I have managed to open without it resembling Beirut.
Inside the box, the supplies are wrapped in delightful paper. This month is the deep orange stationery print. Last month was the same print, but in yellow and earlier in the year the same design was used, but in purple.
Removing the sticker reveals a small stack of supplies, with the full array shown here:
The planner on the far right is undated and is one of three that have arrived this year, each one lasting for four months. I have the others unused and plan to use them for 2023. (I had hoped for 2022, but I liked one of the colours of the 2022 Moleskine range and purchased that instead).
There is not always a planner, each month is a variation. Over the last year there have been notebooks, writing paper, post it notes, birthday cards, erasures, paper clips, pencil cases, pencils (both coloured and regular), page flags, washi tape, and A5 art print (top left). Each month is accompanied by a small folded pamphlet with the information of what is included and an interview with the designer/artist, as each one is designed by someone different.
This post has not been been requested by Papergang, nor am I an affiliate. I fund my own purchases and have shared the contents of latest box via this post. If you wish to find out more, you can do so by visiting the Papergang website. And lastly, everybox sold helps to plant trees and several times a year Papergang work with Charities to promote their individual causes.
As I said, what is there not to love about stationery?
