Each box will include 3-5 items like: Postcards, Embroidered Polo shirt, Tote bag, Mug, Pens, Smartphone case, Signature Soft t-shirt, Note cards, Banner, Flyers, Pre-inked stamp, Window decal, and more.

If you have a business (or just want to see your name on a lot of merch) this subscription could be for you!

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

When you are signing up for this subscription, you’ll provide your business name, your tagline, logos, and other preferences. They’ll use this info to make you a custom box!

This box comes with a card detailing your items:

Now, on to the custom swag!


Gift Certificates – Value $10

This set of 10 gift certificates comes with matching envelopes:

The cardstock has a good weight and feel to it, and the matte finish is nice, too.

Sticky Notes – Value $7 total

My favorite item is the cheapest thing in the box! These are on-par with the standard Post-Its in terms of quality. (These have 50 sheets each, and measure 3 X 3 inches.)

Premium Ball Point Pens – Value $14 Total

These clicky pens feature a slightly softer black material near the pen tip to make them more comfortable to hold:

In general, I was impressed by the weight and quality of this pen – I recommend it.

Calendar Magnets – Value $15

This set of 10 magnets comes with matching envelopes in case you want to mail them. (The magnets measure 5.5 X 4 inches.)

One thing to call out with this subscription, I’ve repeatedly given feedback and requests to change the chevron print/gift tag design they’ve picked for us, and those requests seem to have been ignored. So, I’d recommend giving very specific design requests when you sign up for this subscription, and if you have issues, go through customer care instead of the email they send requesting feedback on your box.

And each box comes with $10 in Vista Print cash to use on whatever products you like!

Verdict: I think this is a great box for businesses that want to test out Vistaprint’s quality and see and touch products in real life before purchasing. In general, I’d say you aren’t going to get the perfect designs you want, but this is more for seeing what products you want to customize.

  1. At least they seem to be sending things that don’t have to break your logo up into two lines. Which looks a lot better! Thanks for the review! Please keep doing this box I like to see what you get.

  2. As a graphic designer, it pains me that you have such a strong nice logo that works on its own, and does not need a generic chevron layout. It only crowds it and makes it a little messy to the eye. With that said, this is a cool box concept, but they should take customers requests or at least get back to you about the request.

  3. I may be crazy, but how is there design different from yours.

    • I think she’s referring to the grey chevron pattern on the top of the post-it pad and the bottom of the gift certificates.
