Studio Calico Stationery Kit Subscription Review – Feb 2016
If you aren’t familiar with Studio Calico, they offer Stationery ($22.99 a month with 6-month commitment), Planner ($22.99 a month with 6-month commitment), Scrapbook ($37.99 a month with 6-month commitment), and Project Life ($27.99 a month with 6-month commitment) monthly subscriptions.
They recently had a first-box-for-a-dollar offer (if you signed up for a 6-month subscription), so I decided to go for the Stationery kit!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
I like that each kit comes with its own pouch!
The Subscription Box: Studio Calico Stationery Kit
The Cost: $24.99 a month (less with 6 or 12 month commitment)
The Products: Stationery cards, plus a few extras each month!
Ships to: Worldwide! (Free shipping to the US)
Check out all of my Studio Calico Stationery Kit reviews!
This box comes with an info card detailing the color theory inspiration for the month.
You’ll Do Flat Card
Happy Beard Day Folded Card
I know it is in jest, but the You’ll Do card still feels a little harsh to me! The beard card works for my husband, though – I don’t think I’ve ever seen him without a beard!
Pink Twine on Veneer Card
Movable Bird Wing Tags
Grey Heart Stickers
I like that they include embellishments with each box! These gold winged swans are pretty cute, too!
You’re So Sweet Folded Card
Hooray! Folded Card
Both of these cards are blank inside and great for lots of uses – exactly what I want in a card subscription!
Hugs not Ughs Folded Card
Emoji Folded Card
More cute cards! The Hugs not Ughs card is blank inside, and the Emoji card says, “Thanks!”
Mr. Darcy Folded Card
Happy Birthday Card
I should mention that this arrived before Valentine’s Day, I’m just a little behind in getting this review up! The heart on the card on the right is actually a scratch off – and the message “Happy Birthday!” will be revealed when you scratch it off with a coin!
Pen Pal Washi Tape
I love this tape for sealing cards! It includes the phrases:
- Sending good vibes
- Just a little something
- Open me!
- Careful! Something adorable inside
- Write back soon!
- Saw this and thought of you
Verdict: I’m really happy with my Studio Calico Stationery Kit subscription. The cards are usually great for general use, and the extras are always cute and fun.
I can’t help but compare this box to Happy Mail for my verdict. I think they both are a good value for the price (with the discount this box cost me about $19). If you’re looking for more of a variety from card designers, I would recommend trying this subscription. (Or I’d recommend subscribing to both Studio Calico and Happy Mail if you are like me and love gettings lots of cards and paper goodies each month!)
