I have recently received a package in the mail from Deerly Studio, a luxury stationery company that handcrafts their products in South Africa. I decided to review their gorgeous stationery line. I will provide a link at the end so that you can shop online on their website.
The owner and creative director of the company, Monja, loves hand lettering and illustrating and her passion lies in design - which is clearly notable with the intricate details of all of the stationary design.
The stationary has such a personal element to it, and I love the arty prints that adorn the paper and pencils. Water colour paint strokes and bright colours on light backgrounds give the stationary a summery, fresh feel and I want my friends' birthdays to come sooner, just so that I can attach the beautiful greeting cards and tags to their presents.
The quirky, colourful notebook covers remind me of something you'd find in a penthouse art gallery and for someone like me, who loves notebooks and all stationary, all I need is an excuse to pick up my pen and begin writing in them! You'd think perhaps it's just the book covers that are beautiful, but when you open the cover page, you'll find that the notebooks have illustrations and graphics inside them (sticking to the cover page theme), which gives such an unexpected and beautiful touch.
The quality is excellent - the paper is great to write on and the books are so pristine. I love the variety of unique, bold designs on all of the stationary and it will definitely make you stand out from the rest at the office or at school!
The greeting card I received was so much better than the ones that you buy in the shops. It was proper, hard card (not flimsy) and it was nice and big, which I feel is so necessary because I for one always run out of space when I start writing birthday cards. The gift tags come with a beautiful, navy, suede-like ribbon which makes presents look so much more luxurious.
The to-do list was also super cute! The title reads: "Things to do to take over the world", which makes writing up your to-do list just that much more fun and you'll have something to giggle at every time you start your weekly planning sessions!
If you're looking to own the coolest stationary out of anyone you know and stand out from the boring office crowd, definitely make your way over to the Deerly Studio Online shop. The company also does gorgeous wedding invitations and stationery for businesses in beautiful, and intricate designs. Here is the link :
So check out their website and get ready to write more beautifully! Until next time.
