Cloth & Paper Stationery Subscription Review – March 2018
Cloth & Paper is a monthly stationery subscription box from lifestyle and stationery shop, Cloth & Paper.
In addition to the Stationery Subscription Box, Cloth & Paper offers a pens-and-pencils-focused subscription called “Penspiration,” as well as a subscription that’s the two boxes combined into one. With the Stationery subscription (what I’m reviewing today), you can expect 5-8 items, including desk items like paper pads, pens, note cards, and journals, as well as some occasional lifestyle goodies.
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 Cloth & Paper Stationery, $38 a month, box.

Cloth & Paper March 2018 Stationery Box Review
It looks like Cloth & Paper has redesigned their info card to say “Well Hello There” on the front, while the reverse side has their blog address so you can see a breakdown of the items.
Black Tear Drop Paper Clips, Pack of 10
Ooh- I love these sleek and uniquely shaped paper clips. Each metal paper clip is solid black, in a teardrop shape to give seriously professional and luxe vibes. They’re about an inch and a quarter tall so they can handle quite a bit of paperwork.
Habit Tracker Sticky Note Pad – Retail Value $4.90
This is a really cool sticky notepad that helps you track your habits and create new ones. Each sheet has 1-8 numbered at the left for different habits you need to keep throughout the 7-day week. Do you need to take your vitamins? Go for a short walk? Check emails or pay a bill? This 50-page pad will make sure you have a place to check it off in a satisfying and clear way.
Gold Foil CEO Sticker Set x 2 – Total Retail Value $11.80 ($5.90 per pack)
I enjoy using stickers in my planner, but mine are usually full of Japanese characters and colorful designs. These keep it simple and business-like with classic gold foil on crisp white. They’ve included 2 packs of 3 sheets so you should have plenty to last for quite some time.
Comme Ci Comme Ça Postcards, 14 pack – Retail Value $6.90 (for a pack of 12)
These postcards are the embodiment of my small talk with the French phrase “Comme Ci Comme Ça” on the front. Anytime I see someone and they ask “How are you?” or “What’s been going on?” I rarely have something interesting to say. Life, ya know? It’s not good, it’s not bad… it’s uh, ya know… fine. I can hold on to these to mail out to pals when I’m feeling indifferent but want to check in. 😉
Transparent “Merci” Greeting Card – Retail Value $5.90
This card is transparent with the simple word “Merci” (aka “thank you”) on the front in black lettering with a crisp white notecard inside that you can write a message on. It comes with a handsome black envelope so you can send someone a minimal amount of appreciation.
Transparent “j’adore” Greeting Card – Estimated Retail Value $5.90
Similiar to the “merci” card, this one has all the same attributes but with the French word “j’adore” on the front, which Google literally translates to “I just love it” but can simply mean “I adore”. Either way, you can keep this card around to send to someone special. I didn’t see this exact card on the Cloth & Paper site but will assume it’s the same price as the Merci one.
Graph “To Do” Pad
Graph paper has a really cool and almost futuristic style, which draws me to it. This 5×7 pad of card-stock graph paper has the words “To Do” at the top and nothing more. As an avid list-maker, I always enjoy something like this since I have so much to do at all times.
Graph Daily Planner Pad
Another 5×7 cardstock pad brings us more graph paper, but with a more specific usage. Each sheet can serve as your daily planner with sections that outline “to do”, “quote of the day”, “notes”, plus a place at the top to record the date and day of the week. Very organized!
Verdict: Cloth & Paper Stationery Box sent me eight really minimal yet elegant stationery items (with an actual total of nine since there were two sticker packs) this month for $38.00. I am way into the graph theme and probably love the teardrop paper clips and habit tracker sticky notes the best since I’ll probably get the most use out of them. It’s also nice to receive some cards as well to hold on to for when I need to send a note to a faraway friend.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but it looks like you have until the 17th or so to subscribe and get the April box (their site is only updated until March right now, so I’m estimating).
Value Breakdown: At $38.00 for this box, you are paying roughly $4.22 for each of the nine items.
