Paper & Pen February 2017

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!

I like that this one comes all wrapped up in tissue paper.  It shows that someone actually took the time to put it together, instead of just tossing everything into a bubble envelope and hoping it get there.

Harvest Paper Co. Imprinted Pencils-$6.00

These mint green pencils are great.  They all say the same thing, “Skills to Pay The Bills”.  They are a #2 graphite pencil encased in California cedar wood.  I love using a “regular” pencil over a mechanical one so I’m happy to get these.  They will be cute to use at work as well and see if anyone notices.

This button pack is called the Flamingo Pack.  They say to use these to decorate your backpack or give as gifts.  I’m not really sure that either of those would work for me but the images are cute and I can probably find something to do with them.  They will live in my ephemera stash until the one magical day I can’t live without them.

This notepad looks lovely.  All of the pages are like the one on top and they are slightly thicker than standard paper.  There are 50 pages in the pad and they are plain white on the back.  Because of the image, they are maybe smaller in usable space than others but you could easily write over the image if you need that space.

I’ve been happy with this box.  There is not a tonne of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info. I was able to find pricing for all the items this month and the value of the box is $20.00. 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.
