Olive Box: Pretty Boxes of Paper Goodies Monthly!

I have to tell you about this amazing new company that Grace Kang started called Olive Box. First of all, Grace is an amazing PERSON. Yeah, her bio is impressive but the kind of stuff that never makes it to a resume is what I really value about Grace… She’s the real deal and has been so super supportive of me and my career that I cannot help but be eternally grateful.

Olive Box

But beyond that, Grace is one heck of a business woman. As a former buyer at Barneys AND Bloomingdale’s alone with being the founder and current lady in charge over at the Pink Olive in NYC, she definitely has a good business head on her shoulders. That is why I believe in her new project, a company called Olive Box and want to share it with you. What’s Olive Box all about? Oh, you’ll want to read on…

Olive Box

Olive Box is a subscription service meant to spread the love – the love of snail mail and receiving delightful gifts each month in your mailbox. As a member you will receive a box of paper & lifestyle products (including a lovely book from time to time, hint hint) delivered to your front door each month, “From cards to artwork to inspiring books and gifting ideas, you never know what exciting products you will unwrap each month.” Each box has a theme that is a surprise and will include goodies that support that theme.

Pretty Boxes of Paper Goodies Monthly? SIGN ME UP, rights?!?

Olive Box

In fact, if you are a member, you will soon receive a special box that includes a signed copy of my upcoming book, Decorate Workshop! I can’t reveal WHICH month, but if you join soon you will have it. I’ve included a sneak peek of THAT box above. :)

    Box subscription services seem to be THE thing at the moment. I don’t see a future for all of them, but paper goods and matching lifestyle products = love! Oh and do I see your new book and masking tape there? I really would love to have one of those boxes on my doorstep :)

    It reminds me of the goodie boxes filled with make-up. I would love to subscribe, but it is not available outside the US. Maybe in the near future(?)

    I love these subscription mailers! They are like interactive magazine subscriptions!

    I like Grace’s idea of filling the box with inspiring pieces. So great!

    So sad that the Olive Box can’t be delivered to Germany :( That looks so great and I am loving paper products so much… so I hope that it’ll be possible some day…

    All the best,

    Love what I see from Olive Box and how fun it would be to receive a “surprise” every month of paper products!

    oohh this is so cool! I love all these subscription services and wish that I could subscribe to all of them!

    I remember hearing about a paper goods subscription service that features a different country each month from a friend which, doesn’t that just sound lovely? Traveling the world through stationery?

    ps. I preordered your book and can’t wait for it to arrive!

    Brilliant idea! And VERY happy that I can participate living in Canada. So many contests/products ship only within the continental US.

    Can’t wait to receive my first box!

    Oh I love that idea and would love to suscribe immediately, but sadly they don’t ship to Germany… If you have any say in this, they NEED to ship to Germany! :)
    Now I’ll have to wait for your book to be published and sold here, but a signed copy would have been so great…

    As a lover of everything paper, the new Olive Box is a true treasure. I’m a member and I get a thrill each time I see the box at my door, open it slowly and it takes me forever to dismantle it and begin using the items. Grace has a terrific eye for what her subscribers would love. Kudos to Grace.

    All hail snailmail! I am an avid fan of good old paper correspondence and this beautiful box subsciption is right up my street. Do go international, please!

    Oh my goodness! This is sooo fun. And I am thrilled that we can subscribe here, in Canada (and free shipping with 6 mos subscription. Yeah!). At first I thought of subscribing for a Christmas gift for my middle daughter but then realized I’d be so jealous. So we’ll just have to share it. All the more fun. Oooh, and I hope I get your book within my six mos subscription (it is on my amazon wishlist).

    What an amazing project! Sadly, for US and Canada residents only :-(… Hope they’ll expand to Europe soon.

    I’m also very sad that I can’t subscribe in Germany! Maybe one day! :) I may have to purchase two subscriptions for myself and an American friend and have her forward mine each month…

    What a great idea and at a fantastic price too! I wonder if we can get the rest of the goodies in the Holly Becker box if we’ve already pre-ordered the book? Is that super-cute cover-matching washi tape I see? Oh my!

    Olive Box subscription has been on my birthday wish list for weeks now and I can’t wait to hopefully receive it! Hand-written notes and stationary products (and cute books like yours!) is my first love. So glad you’re sharing Olive Box today!

    I absolutely love the idea of a box gift subscription, both for myself and if your unsure of what present to get someone then give them a subscription. I’m going to sign up… sooo excited about my first box!

    This site is amazing, keep up the great work ladies.

    Thanks so much for sharing this Holly! Eek I’m excited! I was just asked what I want for Christmas from my mother in law, so I immediately sent her the link to the site. Now, instead of opening one present on Christmas, I might get one every month of the year. How rad is that? :) XXOO
