Today is a #BringBackPaper day here on the blog, so I’m bringing you details of a pretty stationery subscription service, #Paperhaul, along with offering two of you the chance to win a 3 month subscription…
OK, before I get sharing what I received in my box this month, I will issue a *Spoiler Alert*! I know the boxes for June haven’t all gone out yet, so look away now if you’re expecting one and don’t want your surprise ruined.
#Paperhaul introduces it’s boxes… Are you a paper addict who loves snailmail and happypost?
#paperhaul is a box that brings you a surprise and exclusive collection of high quality design-led postcards, tags, stickers, craft papers and more, all lovingly assembled into a different theme each month.
The first thing that struck me about my package is that it is handily sized to fit through your letterbox. I did have that presence of thought before I eagerly ripped it open to see the pretty stationery! Here’s what I found…..
I received 3 postcards, 2 big and 3 small greetings cards, 2 sheets of craft paper, a sheet of stickers, 2 larger stickers, 3 gift tags and a roll of washi tape. I believe that’s a fairly typical selection for a monthly box, and you can see the contents of past boxes over on their website. Plenty to keep me going anyway!
All items are of a good quality and original designs, along with being themed, as you can see. Boxes are themed differently every month, which I think is a lovely idea. The cards and postcards feel thick and not at all flimsy, and the sheet of ice cream and ice lolly stickers you can see there are nice and glossy. As a regular letter writer, I can see me being able to use every item from the box this month. I’m also quite aware of the value of quality stationery, so can see that this is worth the subscription price.
Subscriptions are £10 per month and ship worldwide, all with additional postage prices (it’s £2 P&P here in the UK). There’s no contract, and there are also 3 and 6 month gift subscription options available. For every #paperhaul box sold, 10p is also donated to Post Pals, which is a charity that you may remember me sharing with you here. If you’re liking what you see, you can follow #Paperhaul on Twitter, and find out more about the subscriptions here.
For me, I think this would be something I’d do as one-off treats here and there and can definitely see the appeal as a gift option, too. I like the concept of a surprise package full of papery delights turning up like this and brightening your day, and I’d also be confident now that I would actually make use of everything in it, too. I do sometimes spend £12 a month on stationery, but not necessarily every month and sometimes I find that part of the fun is in the choosing. So it would depend upon my stationery mood as to whether I went for one of these sometimes as a treat, or whether I indulged in a little shopping spree myself. Both are equally fun!
As promised, I do now have two 3 month subscriptions up for grabs for two of my readers. If you’re already subscribing, or just want to dive in and do so now, that’s all fine as if you win, you’ll still get your free 3 months. To be in with a chance, enter using the rafflecopter below. The give-away ends at 12am 8th July 2015, open to UK entrants only. Good luck!
