COLLEGE CARE PACKAGES = THE BOMB


The best thing about college? Being away from home. The worst thing about college? Being away from home. If there’s one thing every student loves, it’s gettin’ care packages in the mail – a little reminder that someone back home is thinkin’ about ‘em. 
 

 

STMT Subscriptions make the care packages easy – and oh yeah, it’s got stuff inside that a student can actually USE. Our pick for stylin’ collegiates would be a Quarterly Subscription or Semester Subscription (notice how those line up so nicely with university lingo?). And of course, we include handwritten notes in every STMT Kit… just let us know in the Notes field in Checkout what memo we should include! (Sorry, we’re not gonna encourage your writing major to switch to econ.)
 
HOOK IT UP FOR COLLEGE

How rad are these office supplies inspired illustrations by Andreas Samuelsson? They got us pumped to finalize our wishlist of artists we’d love to collab with for this year’s RAD AND HUNGRY World Tour gift!

I love reppin’ my people and when Seoulist asked me to discuss Korean stationery… my answer was a HELLZ YEAH! Check the interview where I full-on geekdown about all things Korean stationery and share my 3 all-time fave Korean office supplies. And for the first time EVER, I share all the shops I visit when hunting down office supplies in Seoul. Trust me – you’ll want to compare notes with my stationery tour of Seoul covering 13 shops, spanning 6 neighborhoods.

TWO NO. 2 PENCILS, TWO BALLPOINT PENS, TWO RULED NOTEBOOKS…


We know those checklists that arrive at the end of summer. The only thing that eases the end-of-summer blues? New school supplies – you’re gonna wanna ditch the blues and rock out to some J-Pop.
 

 

No. 2 pencils? You KNOW we got those covered. Ruled notebooks? Toughest decision will be which rad cover to pick. And of course, let’s not forget the ballpoint pens, the paperclips, the sweet coloring supplies…. wait, what was so bad about heading back to school again??

HEY, MR. POSTMAN!


The USA Booster Pack? It’s just beggin’ you to start writing some letters.

These vintage stamps (from 1962!) can NOT be missed. Celebratin’ the 50th anniversary of Arizona’s addition as the 48th US state, these beautifully textured bad boys were specially printed on a Giori press. Stick ‘em on one of the retro Air Mail envelopes (included in the Booster Pack), write up a letter using the American Naturals pencil (also included!) and get ready to impress the postman.

This batch of office supplies? 100% inspired by our road trip to the desert. Where we stayed in a YURT! And not just any yurt – a yurt in the middle of a vineyard, at the edge of the Columbia Gorge (helloooo, amazing views!), with golf carts rollin’ around to pick you up and give tours.

Obviously a far cry from camping (#glamping for life!), but something about the desert surroundings made us think of old-school camping supplies – the metal plates and dishes, the green of Boy Scout uniforms, the days when you’d head out when a pen and notepad and catalog all the cool shit you found. We had to make the USA Kit travel friendly – ready to go on an adventure at a moment’s notice. It’s the Yurt Life, in office supply form. Ready for you to find your adventure.

DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN


What’s Jerry Seinfeld’s secret to continued success? A honkin’ big wall calendar! Every January, he hangs a year-at-a-glance calendar on his office wall. For every day that he writes, he marks a big phat “X”. The goal? Don’t Break the Chain.

Inspired by his method, we created our own monthly calendar from the STMT X Denmark Kit sketchbook and our collection of neon labels. I needed a system to force myself to slow down – time to flesh out new ideas, to form a coherent sentence out of a zillion loose thoughts. So for every day that I sit and write for 20 mins – I get to give the day a big ‘ol hug.We designed our own calendar because… well, we like makin’ shit. It’s fun for us – we like using rad office supplies and trickin’ ‘em out however we want. But we know that ain’t everyone’s jam. Some people just want the tools ready to go.

PAPER PLANNERS UNITE


Paper calendars and planners are super popular in Korea (despite everyone and their grandma having a smartphone!). Walk into any stationery store, any time of the year, and you’ll find entire sections dedicated to calendars. Korean students go through paper planners in an alarming rate. Each day is chock full with an endless list – from school, cram school (hagwon), and one-on-one tutoring, to homework, lessons, and tests.

Students aren’t the only people obsessing over calendars. Housekeeping calendars and calendar-style “cash books” are equally popular. Cash books document every penny earned and every penny spent with so much detail it makes any transaction seem like a BIG transaction – even if it’s only ₩1,000 (approx. $1) for dukbokki.Of course, in a country with such a crush on all things calendars – we had to bring some home. Several options to chose from, all perfect for toting around. Which means if you want to test out Jerry’s method for yourself – whether you want to write every day, cook every day, photograph every day, be RAD every day – you have your calendar there, ready to mark with a big phat X.

Nab up a Korean calendar now. If you’re the DIY type, get yourself an STMT X Denmark Kit or download a calendar we designed for y’all. Either way, you’re ready to get crackin’ and start your own chain.

Simple and totally functional. LOVE the Clicktape by dutch designer Derk Reilink. Do we really need a tape dispenser that eats up half our desk? Not us. We got way too many rad office supplies to show off!
