Varsity stationery collection from Spotlight Stationery.


For our February 2019 theme we chose “Varsity”, a curated stationery collection inspired by England’s two moist famous universities, Oxford and Cambridge.

Cambridge Imprint
We first met the people from Cambridge Imprint at Top Drawer in London earlier this year. It’s a small design partnership which makes a range of beautiful products in pattern paper, printed in vibrant colours, as demonstrated in this trio of pocket notebooks.

Another Top Drawer find was Goodeehoo, a husband and wife team who beleive their products are trends that turn heads, and we agree they certinly are! A ‘Blue” is an award earned by athletes at Oxford and Cambridge when they represent their university in competition, which we think is a great excuse to include their stylish Blade ballpoint pen.

A pencil, eraser and sharpener from Helix’s Oxford range was a bit of a no-brainer for this collection!

See what we did there? An Eye needle pen and a silver Signo… with glitter ink!

Museums & Galleries
This greetings card features a poster by Charles Paine of the 1923 annual Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race, which is raced over four miles from Putney to Mortlake on the river Thames.

As ever, our collection was completed by our latest collection of exclusive illustrated postcards.

This collection is now available in our shop, where you’ll also find some other examples of our previous subscription boxes.
