Q: I'm new to planners, but need to start using one due to a condition that will see me having MANY MD appts, etc. Wondering if you supply a planner to new subscribers or do you recommend one that your inserts will work with? Thank you! I'm excited to begin a subscription with you!! PS: Condition is not terminal, just complicated :)Asked by Lisa S., October 2019
Hi Lisa, thank you for reaching out and for signing up. We do not always include a planner in our boxes and we do not give one out to new subscribers, however, this month's box (October 2019) will include our 2020 Spiral Planner, which I believe will be perfect for the type of planning you will be focused on.
We are also preparing for the relaunch of our leather planners in our shop that are 100% customizable to...
Q: If I ordered by the end of November, would they get it by Christmas?Asked by Tiffany J., September 2019
Thanks for your question Tiffany. Our sub boxes make great gifts so we are working to ensure they are delivered in the U.S. a few days for Christmas. We are planning on shipping the December Boxes on 19th of the month so they arrive to everyone before Christmas but we will have better updates towards the end of November. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for more information as we get closer to that timeframe.
Q: If i wanted to get this monts box would it be possible?Asked by Terrah J., September 2019
If the box didn't already sell out on monthly subscriptions, I would advise sending them a quick email to ask if they have any left for purchase? You could also check their fb page, or their store page. Hope this helps! If you can, my best advice is to sign up for the monthly subscription. It's a little higher than some but totally worth it imo.
You would probably need to reach out to cloth and paper customer service or you can look at Mercari to bid or buy or one of those planner community pages on Facebook who sell or exchange the boxes. Also, I have in the past purchased from persons on instagram who are selling their boxes for whatever reason but you would need to search for cloth and paper. Hope this helps.
Q: I currently use the Franklin Planner in the classic size. Will the planner inserts fit? Asked by Cari S., September 2019
Thank you for your question Cari. The Franklin Covey Classic uses Half Letter inserts. Because we do not have a punch that fits the Franklin Covey 7 hole system you should sign up for "Half Letter Unpunched" and then you would just need to match the punching to an insert you already have using a simple hand punch.
I recently received my third box from Cloth & Paper. This subscription is a must have! So far I have not been disappointed in anything. The items you receive are of excellent quality, and are quite stunning as well. The black & white box itself is nice, but that's only the beginning; each item perfectly curated, packaged and packed carefully, and there's always some seriously cool, totally thoughtful little extras.
If you use a paper planner, you will love this: when signing up, you select your size/style of planner. If you don't use a paper planner, Cloth & Paper will send you other items to enjoy.
But the fun doesn't end with paper items and accessories. The Cloth & Paper box comes 3 different ways: pens only, paper only, and my favorite, BOTH!! I have enjoyed most of the pens I've received. I'm not particularly fond of the Le Pen pens though. But the pens you get are always cool and definitely not the norm!
If you have a serious pen and stationary obsession then this is the box for you. I ordered the pen only box and was delighted by the 5 pens I received. All of the pens were very fine - which is how I prefer them and they were stable and easy to write smoothly with. Two of the pens even came with refills which delighted me as it means I will get double the use out of them. Currently, the UltraSimple is my favorite from this month - but it changes on a daily basis. Opening this box is a little piece of joy!
I just got my first box of both the pen and planner subscription. I absolutely love it! I especially love the pen portion of the box - every writing utensil is unique and writes beautifully. I am seriously impressed by the quality and I am seriously excited about a couple of these pens in particular! The planner portion was nice too - I love the organizing trays and the sticky notes are great but I'm not sure what to do with the boss, legend, and iconic cards. Either way, I absolutely love the box and I am super excited to get my next one! I would highly recommend this company and will definitely buy this subscription as a gift. Packaging is beautiful as well. Thank you Cloth & Paper for the excellent items!
EDIT SECOND BOX: OMG C&P...how did you know I wanted a washi tape holder?! And those planner inserts!...and that pink pen!!....I am a subscription box fanatic and this is one of my top favorites. I love it! Beautiful items and I love the messages inside each box! I’m so happy that I found this company and I will absolutely recommend this subscription to friends. Thanks!
I have found my subscription box tribe! The quality, aesthetics, and service meet my requirements. This box brings me joy. I use the items daily. Since the types of items vary, I feel that I am not wasting anything. I appreciate that every box is different. Now, let’s discuss pens as I subscribe to the pen subscription as well. I rarely would use up a pen completely, but I literally used up one of the pens I received. I will also share my pens occasionally. Everyone is amazed at my pen collection. The pens range from EDC to mom duties to the office. I make sure to budget for these treats! The good news is that I don’t drink coffee, but I indulge in Cloth&Paper!
I signed up for the three month subscription in August. I just renewed it for another three months. I love it. The selection and quality are great. If you love your pen on ink physical planner this subscription box is for you.
I look forward every month for my box. The choice of pens are perfect and sometimes a surprise color or tool is included. I love pens and now I don't have to choose and shop for pens.
I absolutely love love Love C&P. My absolute favorite monthly box ever. I hope I’m able to continue to receive this box forever. So much fun I look forward to it every single month.
Main Point: These are not $5 Walmart boxes! I don't usually write reviews, but this really irked me, so... here it goes...
I found this box to be a lot of fun and a good mix of excellent quality and commonly used Japanese pens. The thing about a box like this is that part of what you are paying for is to have someone else go out there and find/choose pens for you to try out so that you don't have to buy a dozen of something & pay shipping, only to find out that you don't like the pen at all. I am extremely picky with what pens I like, so I was perfectly thrilled to have someone send me 6 of them to try at $3/pen, which, if you know anything about specialty Japanese pens, is not a ridiculous cost. Sure, if you are lucky and live right next to a Japanese megastore in the States, maybe you can get them for cheaper, but for the majority of us, that's not an option.
That said, I went and priced the box out because I was fairly irritated about the comment below about this being a "$5 Walmart box." So... here you go... a public service for everyone... Two of the pens were $1/pen on Amazon *if* you bought 10 of them in the multi-colored pack, which included colors you could never use, so more like $2/pen. Another pen was about $3 if you bought a dozen. Then there's...
