Many thanks to Spotlight Stationery for once again sponsoring Pens! Paper! Pencils! this month. Spotlight Stationery are a UK-based company that will send you a subscription box every month (or every two months if you prefer). With every box they make a donation to National Star, a charity working with young people with disabilities and acquired brain injuries, and they also go out of their way to promote young illustrators by including a selection of postcards featuring their work.
This month’s theme was a brand: Rhodia. Rhodia make some of the best paper for fountain pens and one of the new soft-cover notebooks is included in the box. I’ve been using one of these for my journal and it’s my favourite notebook. Also included in the box are two pocket-sized notebooks with fantastic fountain pen-friendly paper, a good sized black leather pencil case and a bright orange pencil. All these products are excellent (except for the pencil, which looks great but has terrible graphite). The box is a great introduction to a wonderful brand. It’s a great idea to theme a box like this, too.
As well as these products, Spotlight Stationery have included, as they do every month, four wonderful postcards featuring designs by young illustrators. These are always a lot of fun.
If this has whetted your appetite then head over now and use the special code PPP15 to get 15% off your first box.
