Paperworks is a stationery subscription box, that has three levels of subscription service: digital, print, and print plus.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Print Subscription, $19 a month, box.

The Subscription Box: Paperworks

The Cost: Digital is $9.00 a month, Print is $19.00 a month, and Print Plus is $29.00 a month, all with free shipping. Save with prepaid annual subscriptions

The Products: “Each month, we release a new collection of designs – calendars, menu charts, note cards, an art print and much more.”

Ships to: United States, but I would think anyone can subscribe to the digital plan!

Good to know: Each Paper Works subscriber gets complete access to the digital library on Paperworks, where there are hundreds of free printables, like calendars, art prints, note sheets, password trackers, and more!

4 Scripture Cards

This month the scripture cards are Colossians 3:12, Psalm 16:8, Psalm 91:2 and 2 Thessalonians 3:5. I love all the scriptures included this month. One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Psalm 91, so the Psalm 91:2 card is my favorite!

8 Paperworks Notecards 

The notecard prints this month are very autumnal. The acorns, fall leaves, deer, and little hats really say “November” and “Autumn is here.” (Even though it’s still too hot in So. Cal to really be considered fall.)

Everything You Need Art Print

The art print this month says: “When you love what you have you have everything you need.” I do think it needs a comma thrown in there but I’m a chronic comma over-user, so maybe I’m wrong! Either way, this is a great art print for the month of Thanksgiving – I love Thanksgiving and I hate that it’s pretty much skipped on the way to Christmas. So this month is definitely a winner for me!

November Calendar

I love the design of the calendar this month. This month’s calendar also has very faint numbers – I think that is one area where Paperworks can improve: the numbers are so light, you have to strain to see them!

4 Note Sheets

This month, the note sheets are have a thick, striped banner at the top that says: “Notes: There is always, always something to be grateful for.” I love the design and it coordinates really well with the rest of the items this month. The pages are a thick card stock, which makes them great for long term notes.

Verdict: Since everything is designed exclusive to this box, I can’t really assign a value to any of it. For the $19.00, I think that access to all of the printables on the website plus what I received is definitely worth it. If you have a high quality printer, and don’t mind using your ink, I think the digital option would also be great! I’ve glanced through the gallery online (what I have access to as a subscriber), and I really like most of what I see!

I’ve had another stationery subscription for a while that also sends out an art print and cards, and I think I prefer Paperworks. The designs are more ‘mature’ and they are really usable for most situations.

Have you tried Paperworks yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!
