With effect from 1 January 2020, international regulations, determined by the Universal Postal Union, have changed the way international mail is sent worldwide. Goods may no longer be stamped in an envelope and as a letter, but must be sent as a package, regardless of the value of the product.

As a result, the shipping costs have changed, and sometimes increased.This is not just in Europe or the Netherlands, but worldwide.

So here’s the best reason to opt for a rental box!

Gyro Cut (rotating blade): Useful for cutting illustrations and washi tape!

gyro cut
Cutting illustrations with the Gyro Cut

A few weeks ago I saw this video on Instagram by someone who uses a very handy knife to cut out a piece of washi tape. The Gyro Cut seems so handy and quick that I asked asked around of someone of my friends knew this knife. Before I knew 10 ladies where so enthusiastic and agreed to order together to save shipping costs! It was a bit of a wait until we would see each other again but last weekend I got my Gyro Cut.

In short: The Gyro Cut is a precision cutter especially for thin materials like paper, washi tape, sticking vinyl, Solartex and tissue paper. With the 360 ​​degree rotating blade made of hardened steel, you cut as you draw. It costs €15.95 and you can buy it here, at Café Analog, where you can also order extra blades.

Gyro Cut + extra knife

First experience with the Gyro Cut

During the Stationery Cafe where I was at that moment I tested it right away because the enthusiastic reactions of others I had become so curious. Enthusiastically I started to cut and the knife turned in all directions except the good one and I thought “this is such a fail!” As it turned out, I immediately started to cut washi tape while you should start with paper! Ofcourse you can’t expect to be able to cut well with the knife right away. You need some time and practice to figure out how fast the blade turns, how much (little!) pressure you have to put on and the best way to hold the Gyro Cut. That same evening I started practicing and now I will take you into that process, are you coming?

Cafe Analog – December Daily


Last year we had a great time with our worldwide friends doing a December Daily , so we decided to do it again.

Please feel free to join and share in the fun in YOUR way!

What is December Daily? To keep it short: A creative Journal through December with some hints and prompts from us!

And how does it work? Look at the prompt of that day and make a collage about it, or draw or write about it.

We even made a very cute Stickerset  for it!

You can keep it simple and just answer the hint or prompt or question and that’s it.  Or you can take a plunge in the deep and write your heart out! Just follow your mood and your heart!

Of course it all depends on how much time you have, try to avoid the pressure of ‘having to’ and ‘being behind’

Even if you don’t do all days, just pick the prompts that spark something!

Fifteen minutes a day are enough we think, maybe after diner when the kids are in bed?

The weekend prompts are a bit more intensive – but only if YOU want them to be!

Print out the list and put it before the first page!

Here’s the list!


If you like you can follow and share your Daily on Instagram with #cafeanalogdecemberdaily

Or on the Cafe Analog Facebook pagina.

NEWSLETTER wk 39 / Rent a Stationery Box!

NEWSLETTER  week 39  –  sept. 27. 2017


For our loyal customers we now have the option to Rent a Box

This makes it easier to buy bigger things (like the Coffeemug, the Letterwriting sets, the white tin containers and the bigger mounted rubberstamps for example) that only fit in a box and allows you to add during 3 weeks, so you save big way on shipping!

Also you are sure of having that washitape you wanted, to preorder stuff you see on our Instagram and always be on time for special products.

               How does it work?

  • The first time you order a minimum of 3 products and pay for it with shipping of choice included.
  • At checkout options write ‘RENTAL BOX’ and we will hold it for maximum 3 weeks from that moment on!
  • In these 3 weeks you can add as many products as you want, by just buying them in the webshop at any given moment, and we will add them to your box. Choose standard shipping everytime.
  • In the end, after 3 weeks, we weigh and calculate everything, plus the accurate shipping costs.
  • We will then either send another invoice for the extra shipping, or we will reimburse the too much payed, if needed, right away.
  • The box gets shipped after the 3 weeks are over.
  •  Earlier is a possibility too, just send us an email.

                                    Let us know what you think!
