Erin Condren Accessories, Part 2: The Unboxing

THEY’RE HERE!!!

Yes, my first-ever order of EC accessories arrived — earlier than expected which was a great surprise.  That purple mailer may soon grow to be one of my favorite sights in my mailbox.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the package itself but as I did the unveiling I found a bunch of bonuses I hadn’t ordered, way cool!

EC-bonuses EC gift labels

There were two stickers with inspirational quotes in Erin’s festive colors, a coupon code for $10.00 off my next order, and a sample pack of their gift label collection, personalized with my name.  Plaids and paisleys are my faves. 🙂  Thanks Erin!

EC pen holder

The pen holders are really simple. It’s a peel and stick design with a transparent backing so it doesn’t interfere with your notebook or journal’s design. I stuck mine on the inside back cover my Punctuate (B&N) journal and it’s good and tight on there.

It fits most pens but my Pilot Precise V5 (extra fine) rollerball pens are too thick for the elastic. Your standard ballpoint is thinner and should work just fine. If I hook the lapel clip of my Pilot to the elastic, it hangs there without any problems too.

EC elastic bands-classicThe elastic bands (classic in red, blue and silver) were one of the products that sold me on trying out Erin Condren products.

I love book bands and I’ve seen some of the competition with some lesser quality stuff on the market and these EC elastic bands really stand out.

These fit comfortably on my A5 Filofax (Original) and fit snugly on your standard 8.5 x 11″ spiral-bound notebook. Although it fits on a letter-size Circa notebook (Levenger), the 1/2″ rings have a bit more capacity when overly full than the elastic’s designed for.  It works, but you might not want to keep the band on there long-term and strain the elasticity.

Sliding them off and interchanging them is super easy!

 

EC event stickers

Apologies for the glare.

The stickers (blank and event) all came bundled together and the colors are so vibrant and fun that they’re just plain yummy. My favorite color combination is the sheet with all of the greens, blues and purple (not pictured).  I’m looking forward to trying these out to see if they remove easily and how easy/hard it is to write on the blank labels.

My A5 Filofax Original’s pockets are not compatible with the length of the sticker sheets but they do fit well inside as stand-alone products. You could also cut the sheets down to size to fit inside a top-loading pouch or a zipper sheet. For now, I’m going to leave them as is, tucked inside the back of my Filofax.

Overall, I’m pleased with the accessories and I’m looking forward to seeing how well they hold up to a writer’s daily use/abuse.

Have you purchased EC products in the past? Which ones would you recommend? Which are your favorites?
