About

The Bento Stationery Box is an original set of sticky notes and other stationery items designed by À Vol d'Oiseau. It melds the originality of sushi inspired erasers, sticky notes and a notebook with the traditional aesthetics of a Japanese style wooden bento box.

Bento Stationery Box

The Bento Stationery Box comes with a secret Kickstarter only handmade backer gift with every set as a special thank you for helping make this Kickstarter project a reality. The box will never be offered with this item again. You can see the item below in the pixelated area with the "?".

The Maki Sticky Notes

These fun and colorful sticky notes will add a touch of originality to your daily notes. There are 3 different designs. Each maki roll is 1.87 inches (4.7 cm) in diameter and comes with 280 sheets. In addition, each maki roll is specially printed and cut so that each roll you receive is unique.

The Maki Set

The maki sticky notes shown in the Bento Stationery Box above represent the actual sticky notes you will receive when the Kickstarter project gets funded. Below, we have also included renderings of all 3 designs to show them in greater detail.

The Nigiri Sushi Erasers

These extruded erasers are the perfect stationery accessories to transform your daily scribbles from ordinary to extraordinary! Similar to the sticky notes, these also come in 3 unique designs. They are a perfect way to put a personal twist to your stationery items. Each eraser measures approximately 2.36 x .63 x .31 inches (6 x 1.6 x 0.8 cm). Erase those mistakes while staying colorful and stylish!

The nigiri erasers in the set above are samples to represent the size and general style of the erasers in the final set. The price for the eraser molds make it impossible to get actual samples before fully funding the Kickstarter campaign. That is why we need your help to make this project a reality. However, to be completely transparent, below are more detailed renderings to give you a better idea of what the final erasers will look like.

The Hinomaru Bento Notebook

This very unique notebook is inspired by the Hinomaru (日の丸) bento, which translates to “circle of the sun”. The notebook has a textured embossed surface that mimics the look and feel of rice. The red pickled plum on white rice represents the national flag of Japan. This sewing binding notebook measures 3.2 x 4.49 inches (8.20 x 11.40 cm) and contains 180 blank 90 gsm quality pages.

The hinomaru bento notebook in the set above is a sample to represent the size and general style of the notebook in the final set. The price for the mold makes it impossible to get actual samples before fully funding the Kickstarter campaign. Your funding will make this item a reality. Below is a more detailed rendering to give you a better idea of what the final notebook will look like.

Risks and challenges

This is our first stationery project, and like any other product, there are potential risks; however, it is extremely important to us to make sure that all your rewards are delivered in a timely manner. In order to make this possible, we have spent the past 10 months carefully planning all aspects of this project to make sure we deliver all the rewards in time. All of the products are ready to be printed or manufactured. We have a very close relationship with all of our suppliers and have been in constant contact with them to make sure that the products they send are both of the highest quality as well as delivered in a timely manner. Without any unforeseen delays, the products will be delivered in mid December 2019. We will be completely transparent to the backers to make sure everyone is aware of the progress and of any potential delays.
