My Paper + Pen subscription arrived in a bubble mailing envelope. All of the items were nicely wrapped in tissue paper when I opened it.
These are really cute page flags. The little icons look like digital pixelated pictures from the not-so-recent past, and they’re very vibrant. They’re pretty sticky as well, which is a pretty important thing for page flags. I like these, and will definitely use them while studying.
Notebook – unbranded – $5.00?
This notebook is about 8 x 6, and has unlined pages. There are 20 pages, and the paper feels pretty high quality. I tried a few pens out on it, and I didn’t see any bleeding.
These are really cute, hand drawn stickers. I received 5 of the house plant stickers. $6.00 for stickers seems to be pretty expensive, but maybe the fact that they’re hand drawn adds to the cost? They’re very pretty though, and I like the colors and design.
Stripe 0.5 mm mechanical pencils – $3.37
These are really cute mechanical pencils, and they will come in handy for sure. The lead writes nicely, and the mechanism to push the lead out seems firm. I like these, and will definitely use them.
Verdict: This Paper + Pen subscription comes out to about $16.37, taking into account my estimate for the notebook. Honestly, I think that’s really low for a $20.00 subscription box, especially when $6.00 of that value comes from stickers. I really hope to see the value of this box come up, because I think it’s curated really well, and is a great idea.
With that said, I did enjoy the items I received, and they will all be used.
