Moustache Stationery Box: Unboxing and Review!

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

Happy Tuesday, happy paper people! I had a different post planned out for today, but I got my first ever Moustache Stationery box in the mail last week, and I just had to do a blog post about it because it made me so happy!

There are seriously TONS of scrapbooking, planner, and stationery monthly subscription boxes that you can sign up for. Most of the ones I had found were super cutesy and girly, and while they are beautiful, they just aren't right for me. Then, I watched a YouTube video by My Life Mits (who is awesome - check out her instagram account @mylifemits) about this stationery subscription box called Moustache Stationery, and I knew I had to give it a go.

Moustache Stationery is relatively young in the stationery subscription box world, but I'm such a fan of the company already. For $39.95 each month, you get a box of high-quality, unique, and all around awesome stationery items. In the past, they have included brands such as Caran D'Ache, Leuchtterm 1917, and Tombow.

My first box was the August box, and the theme is Made in America! I think this has something to do with the fact that they just opened a fulfillment center in the USA, so everything in this box was - you guessed it - Made in America.

This is the view of the box when you first open it... I love the card!

The main thing in this box that I love is the Fisher Space Pen. They are so fun, as they write from any angle, underwater, etc. This particular pen is really cool because it has the Moustache Stationery moustache on it! I have been using this pen all week, and I love it. Plus it's compact enough that I can carry it in my planner, and it's perfect for using while traveling because of the pressurized ink cartridge, which won't have issues on flights or changes in altitude (#coloradoproud). Along with the pen, they included a fine tipped ballpoint refill so you can use this pen for a very long time.

How adorable are these little notepads? One has the Moustache Stationery branding on it, and the other has the classic Write Notepads & Co. branding. Plus, each notebook you buy provides a notebook to a child in a Baltimore school. I think these notepads are wonderful, and perfect for making lists. There are so many pages, and the paper is really high quality, and I definitely think I will order more from this company in the future!

Finally, these recipe cards and postcards came from Impression Paperie, a little letterpressed stationery boutique based out of Louisiana. I love the "Don't Type Write" postcards! You get three of each the kraft paper postcards and recipe cards. I can't wait to send some postcards!

Overall, I was a huge fan of this box. I liked that the products included came from more recognizable brands, like Fisher Space Pen, as well as smaller companies, like the Impression Paperie cards. I feel like the $39.95price was a bit expensive for the box, but I am overall pleased with the box and its contents. With other stationery subscriptions I've ordered in the past, I feel like I always use maybe 1/3 of the contents of the box, whereas I have used almost everything in this box, or have plans to use it (some awesome postcards will be sent to my friends in the future!). The only thing I am not sure about yet are the recipe cards, as I don't really cook, but they may make a cute gift to my cousin who loves to bake. Overall, I am so pleased with this box, and I will certainly continue my subscription to Moustache Stationery in the future!
