Shoplet goodies

Stationery, us bloggers love it. Well I know I do. When Shoplet, an online office supply retailer, got in touch offering a few products to review I jumped at the chance. They sent over a magazine rack and two different types of envelopes.

Shoplet Products - Magazine Holder and Envelopes

At work we have lots of stationery but it is not like I can bring it home. When these products arrived I was excited to try them out. The magazine rack looked pretty standard but the envelopes were extremely bright and inviting. The cute little messages on each looked great, although I don't think these come as standard.


Avery Original (A4+) 440SX Plastic Magazine Rack (Black)* - £33.96+VAT for 6

The magazine rack is pretty much the same as any other. I received the black version which was extremely sturdy and held quite a few heavy magazines as you can see in the photo. Although not extremely attractive to the eyes it certainly does the job and would fit into anyone's office space with ease.

Blake Juice Peel and Seal Envelopes*
These particular envelopes are the ones ranging from yellow to orange in the picture above. The colours are so bright and neon that you couldn't fail to pick this up and open it if it came through your letter box. The paper quality of these envelopes is that of expensive greeting card envelopes, a lovely thick paper. Having the peel and seal is definitely an attraction to these envelopes as it means you don't have to lick them! Bleurgh! I would certainly want to buy these to send birthday cards or special notes to people through the post. They'd definitely know it was from me!

These envelopes are the ones ranging from black to blue in the above picture. The colours of these envelopes are a lot more toned down than than the garish colours of the Blake Juice ones. As well as this what makes these feel a lot classier is the velvet texture. Although not fluffy and fuzzy like velvet (as I may or may not have been expecting...) this envelope has a property to it that makes you want to touch it! It is almost tacky, ever so slightly like rubber, very strange but attractive at the same time. If I picked this up I'd want to know what was inside.

If you'd like to have a snoop at what other products Shoplet do then check out their website - Office Stationery

Although this was a different, quite random post from me, I did enjoy trying out these office products. If you see one of these envelopes landing through on your door mat - it's from me!
