My Paper + Pen subscription arrived in a bubble mailing envelope. All of the items were nicely wrapped in tissue paper when I opened it. A QR code was included to scan for the box content information this month, but I think my code was misprinted because no QR Code scanner I tried recognized it as a QR Code!
Library Cards Assorted - $5.00?
These library cards are so cute. I found some similar ones on Amazon here. I didn't realize this was a thing, but there's even a home library kit! I like these, but they aren't super practical for my life (I use a Kindle exclusively), so I will pass these along to a friend that will love them. They are made out of pretty heavy card stock.
6 Neon Color Ball Point Pen - $5.00?
This pen is very similar to this pen on Amazon. It writes really smoothly, and the ink is bright enough that all of them show up really well.
Pencil Grippers - $2.00?
These pencil grippers feel like a thicker silicone. They have the little intents where your fingers are supposed to go on the pencil/pen, so they're very comfortable to hold and write with.
Soft Color Eraser - $0.25?
This eraser is a pastel turquoise and does a great job erasing pencil.
Clear Pencil Box - $2.00?
This pencil box feels very sturdy. I love that it has two separate compartments to keep your small desk accessories separate from your writing utensils. I will probably repurpose this for something else, but I really love it!
Verdict: I really loved this shipment from Paper + Pen. I think that it was very appropriate for a month where many students are going back to school. All of these items (with the exception of the library cards) would work great for a college student or even a younger student.
As far as value goes, since I couldn't use the QR code, I don't have exact values for any of the items. I'm not comfortable tallying up my estimates because they are complete guesses. I would say that this month I felt like the box was moving toward meeting the $20.00 box cost value, but not completely there yet.
