Review: Evil Supply Co. Mr. Ghost Parcel - September

You know when you get really into something, a television show or comic series, for example, and it just gets better and better and when you know the next installment is coming out you get giddy excited? That's where I'm at with the Evil Supply Co. monthly Mr. Ghost parcels. Previously I reviewed the July and August installments and I expressed delight about this month's, the theme of which is Graveyard Secrets. Perfectly spooky, no?

For those of you just now joining us, Evil Supply Co. is a paper, stationary, and other delightful papery things company who specializes in, well, evil. Everyone from mad scientists to evil overlords and swamp witches are represented in a collection of notebooks, envelopes, cards, posters, and hopefully a planner to be kickstarted this autumn. Their Mister Ghost subscription is a monthly box based around a certain theme (Netherworld Post Office, Mad Science and Witchcraft, etc.) that contains blind-boxed objects that are unique to the kit and not yet on the store. They're always a delight to open, so thank you Evil Supply Co. for sending this one my way!


All of the Mister Ghost parcels come in a screen-printed folder which is designed for the new theme. I love these because they're sturdy, spooky, and extremely useful. This one is by far my favorite and I've been using it to carry about all my school papers for the day. 

Here's an overview of the package:


The first things I pulled out were these four notecards with cemetery photography, complete with gray envelopes for mailing. My dorm is currently decorated with a lot of black and white photography so I'm not quite sure if I'm actually going to be mailing them or just sticking them up on my wall. The photographs are lovely and in person they're such a gorgeous, high-quality print.


Next up are my other favorite thing about the Mr. Ghost parcels: pocket notebooks. These thin notebooks are available on the Evil Supply Co. website outside of the parcels but it's always great to get a new pattern. I use these for everything, honestly, and I have quite the collection. I keep one in my purse for spur-of-the-moment things I need to jot down, I use one for my tarot readings, I use one for to-do lists, and I love getting new ones. The prints on these are so pretty, my favorite is the one with the ghost and the bat on the right.


Next up is this rather larger art print of a skeleton with a banner reading "Spread Necromancy, Not Gossip." This one went straight up on my bulletin board on the outside of my door (along with another ESC print, haha) and it makes me smile whenever I walk into my room.


Lastly, stickers. Followers of my instagram @theeverydaygoth will know my minor obsession with stickers and using them in crafts and planning as of late. Evil Supply Co.'s stickers are great quality, thicker and very durable with great cute designs. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with these yet, but they fit the theme and I absolutely adore them.


Overall, this parcel was one of my favorites yet. The theme is near and dear to my heart as a lover of cemeteries and I found a use for everything in the parcel, which is obviously a good thing.

If you want to get your own Evil Supply Co. parcel, the next theme is 'Trick and Treat', it's their special Halloween edition, and it ships in early October. If you're going to buy just one parcel to test out the service I think now is a fantastic time to do so, as this is certain to be an incredible Halloween treat. 
Buy yours on the Evil Supply Co. website here!

  2. This is the one I got a few days ago! I was trying to order the August one, but I guess you can't get them after a certain time. Oh well, I'm happy! I plan to get the next one as well. AND I also purchased some fun patches and the red/black stationery set, which is perfect for writing letters, a hobby of mine. The stationery is printed on BOTH sides, so I love it more! :-)

    Thanks so much for introducing the Mr. Ghost monthly mailings. I've order from Evil Supply before, but they didn't have those yet.
