Paper & Pen March 2016

Paper & Pen is a monthly subscription box that promises to send out 3-4 paper goods and supplies each month.  They pick items from around the globe and send those unique items to you.  Boxes start at $20 a month but go down with longer plans.  Shockingly for me, shipping is free!  Let’s see what they sent out!

These parcels were shipped in a plain yellow bubble mailer.  The nice presentation was a good start.

That envelope was a card thanking me for joining.  I love getting these hand written cards.  It shows that they are not just out to make money but are honestly care about each subscription they get.  I feel special and happy for subscribing now.

Marvy Uchida Le Pen in Black-$3.47

Ooohhhh I like this pen!  It is a super fine point and flows like a gel pen.  I am always looking for more pens, not that I need more, and this one will be a joy to use.

Harvest Paper Co. “You Got This” Imprinted Pencils-$5.75

Okay so there are some very awesome pencils being made by this company.  They even sell them individually if you wanted to pick them up.  These pencils are a #2 graphite with California Cedar wood.  You can’t go wrong sometimes with a plain old pencil.

Vintage Stamp Stickers-$2.95

These are assorted stickers that have nice sayings on them.  The have scalloped edges like a real stamp and I’m happy to have received them.  They are so sweet and I feel better just looking at them.

Sea + Lake Paper Co. “Adult Status” Notepad-$10.99

This is a great notepad!  It makes you feel better about yourself and your to-do list because you get to be awesome if you can cross off only three things.  There are 75 sheets, which is so huge for most pads.

I’m really impressed with this box.  There is not a ton of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info.  The value for this month was $23.16.  That is higher than the one month price and definitely higher than what I paid.  I like that some of the products are from smaller companies and Etsy companies.  It shows that they really do search out interesting items instead of just buying lots off Amazon.
