Today we’re going to write about YouTuber Jim Chapman‘s new stationery range- James & friends. I’m a long time viewer of Jim’s, and he has been one of my favourite YouTubers for years now, I actually met him last year!
Jim recently announced his stationery range, with more to come! I adore stationery so I, for lack of better terms, lost my shit at this announcement. It’s also not to overtly ‘YouTuber merch’, it’s a new brand, a new image, and it’s just so great to look at.
I purchased 3 pieces of the range from Paperducks, and I intend to get more! Probably the entire range, if I’m honest, but I’m trying to save all of the money I earn from work for travelling next year after I graduate from uni!
Anyway, let’s get onto it!
I bought the:
A5 notepad – £7
Pocket notebook – £2
‘eat sleep blog repeat’ pencil case – £7
Let’s start with the pencil case!
I love a good pencil case, I love being organised, and I love the message on this! It’s a mantra I kinda wanna live by.
The zip is really nice, which is an odd comment for a zip, but it is! The plastic is strong, and ORANGE. Why isn’t everything on this planet orange?! Orange is the best colour, as all gingers like myself will tell you.
And let’s not forget the cute message on the back on the tag:
Let’s have a look at the ‘Notes to selfie’, possibly the most millennial pun ever, and I am all about it.
Sorry for the intrusion of my pinky.
And the staple of the range, the A5 notepad. The best notepads are this size, and I have freaking tons of notepads. I love them oh so much. There’s something about physically writing down your ideas, and to do lists, and whatever, rather than just typing them in your phone. I can’t put my finger on what it is exactly, but it just feels so much better!
And I think I’ll be planning blogposts from now on like this!
