*AD I was sent this box in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As you may have figured out by now reading my blog I am a lover of all things stationery and planning. OHH DEER is a company I have been following for a while, they sell so many different products including stationery. They offer a few subscription services and one is Papergang, a stationery subscription service. How awesome is that?
Papergang is a monthly subscription box where every month you receive a box of stationery goodies designed by different artists. Papergang works with their charity partner Tree Aid. Tree Aid works with communities in the drylands of Africa to protect the environment. They help villagers grow nutritious food all year round. Every box purchased helps to build trees. How amazing is that for the environment? The trees that are planted help to provide food and income, that can help people in need to be able to pay for education and healthcare. Tree Aid have planted more than 16 million trees and improved the lives of over 1.2 million people. It is a great feeling to receive great quality stationery products to enjoy but knowing you are supporting a sustainable company.
Each box is designed by an artist, this month’s box was designed by Jessica Forgie. Jessica works as an in-house junior designer at OHH DEER and has been with them since November. The box design is in keeping with the contents, the packaging is completely recyclable which is so important.
This box has 3 stamps and an ink pad, one washi tape, an A6 stitch notebook, an A5 letter set and 2 greetings cards.
The pad is an A5 size with lined pages. The pad has beautiful nature designs. The pages are a rosy colour that have a nature motif in the left hand corner. It comes with a set of envelopes with rose gold features, the rose gold star detail matches one of the stamps. I love writing letters so this is going to get used up really quickly. In a world that is so technology heavy, writing letters is a great way to connect with others and there is something therapeutic about putting pen to paper.
A6 Stitch Notebook
This notebook has dotted white pages, the notebook is a pastel shade of green with rose gold detail. I love the design. Being an A6 size it is perfect to pop in your bag or for when you are on the go. Being stitch bound the notebook lies flat which is a must for me, nothing worse than not being able to write on a page properly. I like using dotted pages like in my bullet journal. The paper is good quality and doesn’t bleed through in the paper and only a small amount of ghosting.
I have been looking for a black design on a washi tape. I love the different moon designs. I do not have any moon themed washi tape and I love the contrast of the white against the black. I love using washi tapes in my bullet journals and for other uses like sealing envelopes. You can never have to many washi tapes, right?
Like I said previously I enjoy sending mail and writing to others is really therapeutic. I like keeping cards I have been sent I have done since I was young., they bring me happy memories. The design is unique to any other greeting cards I have seen, the rose gold is such a pretty colour and a great addition to the design. The cards are white and blank inside for you to be able to write your own message. The cards came with brown envelopes with the OHH DEER logo embossed on the front.
3 Stamps And An Ink Pad
I recently started to use stamps in my bullet journal. I only have letters so I am happy to add these to my stamp collection. The designs are beautiful, my favourite is the star stamp which is in the corner of each envelope. The stamps are a decent size so you can see all the detail of each design. I cannot wait to start using these stamps in my bullet journal spreads and my letters to loved ones.
There are 4 subscription options you can pay monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months or 12 months. The larger the subscription the more money that you save. You can follow Papergang on Instagram where you can see previous boxes and lots more. You can head over to my Instagram to see the pictures of the products in use too.
Have you ever tried a Papergang subscription? I’d love to hear in the comments.
