If you’re a fan of beautiful stationery and haven’t yet heard of Papergang, it’s time to listen up. Last year, my friends at Ohh Deer improved the world of subscription boxes tenfold by introducing their own letterbox treat service offering stand-out stationery and unique collaborations in limited edition boxes, each and every month. This month’s box is an absolute beauty.
So, what is Papergang?
The Papergang box is a bundle of stationery goodies created and selected by Ohh Deer and their team of talented designers, including illustrator and Bitchin’ Bugs author Amy Lesko. Each month, a different box full of specially-designed bits and pieces will land on your doorstep, giving you an exclusive look at new collections, collaborations and items that will soon be available online.
Ohh Deer has long been my go-to for cute gifts, cards and wrap and its stationery offering is always exceptional. Having collaborated with the likes of Urban Outfitters and Gemma Correll, Ohh Deer has well and truly upped its partnership game, dedicating its monthly Papergang boxes to sweet collaborations with illustrators, makers and influencers. My favourite to date was chock-full of stickers, cards, planners and notepads illustrated by Nina Cosford.
What’s in the boxes?
The wonderful indie brand’s latest box is a real treat, filled with goodies by author and YouTuber Arden Rose. The contents is a beautiful, botanical-print offering of iron-on patches, notebooks and more, all wrapped up in a signature sleeve with a gorgeous orange print. The whole Arden Rose capsule range has just dropped on the Ohh Deer website so don’t worry about missing out on the box this time round, you can find every lovely item online.
While I’m on the subject of Ohh Deer’s collaborations, I’m also pretty thrilled about the theme for next month. For June’s box, the company has teamed up with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to create a bee-print box and a selection of amazing illustrated pieces of stationery and accessories. £1 from every box will go to the trust to support the vital work it does in protecting our threatened bumblebee population. There’s just a week left to sign up to receive the special June box and start your subscription and this is a great time to do it.
