I have received a new stationery subscription box, from the lovely folks over at Spotlight Stationery, so today I’ll be sharing all about it with you.
“Every month we curate a selection of contemporary stationery for our subscribers. We choose only premium brands and artisan products, including items you won’t commonly find on the high street. We make a donation to the National Star College for every sale that we make.”
You can opt for Monthly or bi-monthly subscriptions as well as one-off purchases of past boxes, all for £25 a box.
The box arrives in a handy letterbox sized parcel and as you can imagine, I was very keen to open mine up and explore the contents, so here you can watch the full unboxing….
And here are a few snaps of the beautiful contents…
This month’s theme is ‘Type’ and includes Monograph notebooks from Bath based Portico Designs, 2 pencils featuring a font and illustrations by British designer Eric Ravilious, a Clever Cats greetings card with a Victorian feel to it and a bookmark featuring a collection of vintage typefaces. Finally, there’s the set of postcards featuring the work of young illustrators.
All of the products feel of a good quality, and Spotlight Stationery does work to source both up and coming illustrators as well as working with established brands such as Castelli, Leuchtturm 17 and Paper-Oh.
This is unlike some of the stationery boxes that I have reviewed (check out Stationery Subscription Boxes) in that whilst there is a monthly theme, it is not all from one designer or illustrator. I do like the versatility that that offers as it means there’s likely to be something for all tastes there. I like the inclusion of the monthly theme, and typography is really appealing to me personally. Again, for me, a bookmark is always going to be well-received, post cards are perfect for me and my love of snail mail, and I struggle to imagine any stationery fan not appreciating new notebooks, and these two do have a really luxurious feel to them. I am already looking forward to using everything from this box full of papery goodness!
What do you think of Spotlight Stationery?
Disclosure: I received the box FOC for the purposes of this post
