I don’t usually sign up for monthly subscription boxes. I never think the price is worth what you get (this is especially true for book subscriptions), but a few weeks ago I decided to try signing up for the Papergang box since I’m a total sucker for stationery and nice paper things.
Papergang is run by OhhDeer.com, this is an online shop that sells lots of stationery things and cards ect. Most of the items you get in the Papergang box are things you can actually buy individually on the OhhDeer website. However the box is £9.95 a month so buying everything individually works out to be more expensive.
This months box was travel themed. It came with an A4 desk pad and a slightly less than A4 notebook with these really cute cacti illustrations on it. It also came with a blank birthday card and stickers in this same illustration style. I didn’t see any information on who this illustrator is because I would love to buy more things from them (I just really like cacti okay).
The little calendar for March is something that comes with every box, I don’t really have a use for it since it would bulk out my bullet journal too much but I imagine if you had a filofax or something similar it could be used in that.
If you head over to the Papergang website you actually get a hint of what the next month’s box will be from the background. Or you could just wait till I write a blog post about it since I got a 3 month subscription.
