Q: I was wondering about the December past box. All that came in the box was two paper journals for over $16? I only ask as I could pick up similar items for $5 at my local super grocery store. Asked by Elizabeth M., February 2020
I only get the Penspiration box, but you can go to YouTube and search "Cloth & Paper December 2019 unboxing" and there are subscriber videos you can watch that show what they received. And they usually put an unboxing video on the C&P blog, too, but sometimes it takes a month or so before they put it up. Hope this helps!
Q: I am consider a 4-month subscription for each of my daughters as their Christmas present. Will I just cancel my subscriptions after the March 2020 mailing?Asked by Lanie F., November 2019
You're exactly right, you would just cancel your subscriptions before they renewed on April 1st.
Q: The accessories for planners are they accessories specifically for the provided planner or are they universal? Is it possible to receive more than one planner throughout the subscription? Asked by Nicole M., May 2020
When you sign up they will ask you what size planner are you using now, and whatever you answer will be the size of inserts you receive. There will be a list of sizes to choose from when you get to that page. They do not give you a planner. They did in December 2019 box, but only that one time! Hope that helps!
Q: I love my penscription-- I just want to know what my pens are. How do I see what pens I've received? Some have their info on them, and some are totally clean with a seamless, unbranded look. Asked by D D., April 2020
D.D., you can go to YouTube and search "Cloth & Paper (& name of month you received) unboxing" and there are subscriber videos you can watch that show what they received. And they usually have an unboxing video on the C&P blog, too, but sometimes it takes awhile before they put it up. It would be nice if the pen test card included the brands of the flip side.
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 discovered Cloth & Paper in January of this year and weekly purchases immediately became the norm for me because their products are that gorgeous! This is my first subscription box and I am floored at how absolutely gorgeous this sub box has been curated! Cloth & Paper has reintroduced me to planning and how much I love it. Their products are of the highest quality and unbelievably chic! They have given me and the masses something really positive to focus on during this uncertain time...The ability to organize our lives and the lives of our loved ones. They are an extraordinary company filled with a hardworking, kind and creative team! They will have a forever customer in me! I 🖤 You C&P!
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!
While it seems expensive, this High-end box is worth every penny. Get both. You won’t be disappointed. Everything is exquisite.
The quality of this box is impeccable. I am always happy to purchase from the shop for extra goodies before my sub box arrive.
Shipping is ALWAYS fast for me.
Cloth and Paper give me the satisfaction I am looking for. Overall this is one of my favorite boxes.
Thank you for the great review! Love to hear that you are enjoying your subscription and the shop.
Subscribing to the C&P box was one of the best things I did last year. I had been following the company for awhile. I’m so glad I decided to subscribe. I love the thought that goes into each monthly box.
Thank you so much for leaving a review. Its great to hear you are loving the box so far. Can't wait for you to see what we have in store for the rest of the year.
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...
As others have said, shipping is ridiculous.
How can I find out what pens I got in my box are?
