New stationary is always a lovely treat, and Papergang is a great way to increase your stash of lovely paper and stationery items! Papergang works with a different artist each month to produce a range of items featuring their work. A monthly subscription costs £10.95 + 2.95 p+p.
This might be December’s box, but the theme is definitely looking forward to a fresh new year! The pattern on the box sleeve, is lovely and abstract, it could be several things including sea, night sky, or shoreline. Great for the imagination!
On the other side of the sleeve are there cute cut-out-and-keep luggage tags. I’m not sure how robust they will be, being cardboard, but they go well with the overall theme.
The tissue wrapping is totally intact. Sometimes it gets a little torn, depending on how much things are thrown about in the mail process.
You can see what looks like nice things peeking out from behind the menu booklet.
The booklet always has a contents list with RRPs.
There’s an interview with this month’s artist. The idea this month is all about adventure and new beginnings, perfect for looking forward to the New Year!
There’s even a place for you to plan your adventure wishlist.
First, a birthday card. This is a lovely design, and I especially like the slightly Native American design of the rug.
There’s also a little printed motto, a nice thing to give to a loved one.
These are a generous four sheets of stickers here! They’re a fantastic selection of outdoorsy illustrations, they make me feel like putting on wellies and heading out for a walk just looking at them!
On the right is a small woven patch. It has an excellent inspirational motto ‘Charting Unknown Territories’ with mountains in the background. The patch quality is excellent, with proper edges, this should be very sturdy and long lasting.
Finally, a Daily Planner. It has the same pattern as the box sleeve, and I can already tell it’s well designed because it has a ribbon bookmark! That’s essential for a planner.
The print is very faint, but this is a very thorough layout with two pages per day.
On the left page you get space for the date, to do list, timetable, urgent and non urgent.
On the right are lines for notes, and even a space at the bottom of the page for doodles!
The print is actually faint enough that you could more or less ignore the guidance, but if you’re someone who enjoys some quite extensive journaling, or has a very complicated life, this is an excellent layout. It would also be a great place for planning your next adventures!
It seems that Papergang have really upped their game the last couple months after I was less keen in the middle of the year.
November and October were fantastic, and this is equally brilliant.
The stickers are generous and beautiful, the patch is fun and inspirational, and the planner is one of the nicest I’ve seen yet.
The sleeve design has been used just the right amount, on the planner, and it’s incredibly pleasing on the eye.
It’s a pleasing overarching theme, everything is great quality, and I love everything!
