Papergang by Ohh Deer Stationery Subscription Box Review – September 2017
Papergang is a monthly stationery subscription box from quirky UK design team, Ohh Deer. Each month they partner with a different artist and have a theme to bring you paper goods and desk accessories.
They always have really stellar packaging designed special each month, and the back has a paper cut out craft (a Meerkat!) designed by Daniel Randle.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Papergang
The Cost: About $14.44 USD (10.95 GBP) + shipping. Discounts available for 3, 6, or 12-month prepaid subscriptions.

Good to know: Papergang partners with Tree Aid to make sure that for every four boxes they sell, one tree gets planted in the African Drylands, which helps with vital food and income.

Papergang has a new format for their info card. It now comes in the form of a little zine which has an interview with the featured artist (Natasha Durley) and all sorts of info on referrals. Subscribers also always get 10% off at the Ohh Deer shop!
Giftwrap – Listed Value $2.31 USD
The pattern here designed by featured artist Natasha Durley is truly stunning! You’ll recognize it from the packaging this month as well, and it repeats in other items throughout. I am super into the dark colors she used for the jungle scene with pops of neon and light grey. Look closely and you’ll discover all sorts of fauna and flora hiding within the dense detailed pattern. Single sheets of wrapping paper are hard for me to use because they seem so special, but this would be so nice to wrap something spectacular in.
Coaster – Listed Value $3.89 USD
The second reoccurring pattern you’ll see in this box has colorful birds gliding across a pale pink background. This single coaster has a textured plastic top with a cork base to keep your hot and cold drinks from ruining beautiful wood or slipping around. Natasha’s illustration style reminds me of collages in the way she mixes patterns and colors.
A4 Deskpad – Listed Value $10.48 USD
I am so excited to receive such a beautiful and useful item! As you may know by now, I prefer analog note taking to typing, so this is perfect for me to keep at my desk to jot down what I need to accomplish each week. The jungle scene from the box and gift wrap makes an appearance here with some flowers and trees popping out from behind the muted spaces to write. It’s been broken up into days of the week, doodles, notes, and to-dos.
Stickers – Listed Value $5.21
I was only supposed to receive three sheets (as listed on the package), but lucky me, I got four! The birds in flight from the coaster make a triumphant return in sticker form. If you’ve read my reviews, you know how I feel about stickers (LOVE). I am especially drawn to the snowy owl that didn’t fully make it to the coaster.
Greeting Card – Listed Value $3.30 USD
You’ll always receive a greeting card in each delivery of Papergang, so you’ll have to do less shopping around a special occasion. This one is blank inside so you can use it for any event that may require PARTY TIME. A birthday, an anniversary, congrats on any ol’ thing! Again, Natasha has used bright neon lettering against the dark bold colors.
Another thing you’ll always receive is a riso printed monthly calendar (for the upcoming month)! They don’t put a value on this, so you can chalk it up to a bonus! This will be posted up next to my Gemma Correll riso calendar from last month.
Verdict: Papergang was really awesome this month! Natasha Durley has a gorgeous, unique illustration style that I am happy to now own. I’m glad they gave us a lot of different items instead of just notepads, though the deskpad was certainly my favorite!
