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: If I order the box today, will I receive a planner with it? I am new to this and need a startup planner. Asked by Jaime W., October 2019
I only get the Penspiration Box which has cool pens and some unique stationery/journaling type items- like mini scissors or correction tape. I really love it and look forward to getting it each month. I'm not sure about the Cloth & Paper Planner subscription. You might start by watching some of the unboxing videos for previous months (links are on the right side of the home page) to get an idea about what they include or just contact the seller...
Q: Hello! I am interested to buy this box but I need 2 sizes of inserts. It is possible to pay the shipping once ir how this will work? Thank you very much! Asked by Sinziana R., September 2021
Sinziana, Thank you for your question and for your interest in our subscription box!
To receive two different sizes of inserts, you would subscribe to two separate boxes. We have quite a few subscribers who do this. :) The shipping cost depends on your shipping address and it is per box. Shipping is free to US addresses.
If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at the email address listed on our ecommerce website. We'll be happy to assist you! I hope this information helps!
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!
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!
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...
Surprisingly satisfying subscription! This was a gift for my daughter and we both have really enjoyed receiving it. Each package comes with a small plastic pen case envelope and some very high-quality feeling pens. I had an issue one month and their customer service was excellent. I put this penspiration box on my top gifts list!
Clioesme, thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy to hear that you and your daughter have enjoyed last month's Penspiration box. We greatly appreciate you considering our subscription service for gifting in the future! :-)
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.
Love love love my C&P subscription box! I look forward to it every month. The themes are beautiful and the items are thoughtfully curated and high quality.
Thank you for your review and comments! We are so glad to hear you look forward to receiving this each month. We appreciate the kind words and support.
You will not be disappointed with these subscription box. This is my third month getting them and I am obsessed and can’t stop! Everything you get is such high quality and aesthetically beautiful. The shipping was fast. The notification said it’ll be here Monday and for here Saturday and that’s the second time it arrived early! I am beyond pleased with these boxes!
Love to hear you are enjoying your sub!
TL;DR: All their boxes are worth it. Don’t pay any mind to people who are leaving 1-2 stars because they failed to read the descriptions and/or have unrealistic expectations. Seriously, they’re likely never satisfied with anything in their lives.
I LOVE this compant. I originally signed up for the stationary box and it was seriously my favorite thing every month. This box is so thoughtfully crafted and exceeds my expectations constantly. I’m so excited that I just subscribed for both boxes, and I cannot wait to get my first shipment with both boxes!!
This box is probably one of the few on this site that are a MUST have. Especially for those who love elegant stationary!
My friend gave me a 6 month subscription of the pen boxes for Christmas and I have become OBSESSED! I feel like I finally understand those people who know every detail about different model cars. All of the pens are so nice and beautiful, and with 5-7 per month, I moved from restocking my desk to upgrading the pens that I keep in my purse and around the house. It was low-key very exciting.
The packaging is super nice, too. All the boxes are a great looking black cardboard and the pens come in frosted plastic pencil cases (Medium quality zip or snap cases. Not the most durable, but they're definitely not the cheapest quality, I'm impressed) and include a little postcard so you can test the pens.
