I love getting Birthday cards from subscriptions – I always use them, plus I love the colors of this one!
Connecting Dots by Pepper Press in Brooklyn, New York – Value $5.50
This card is blank inside, and it’s a great any-occasion type of card.
I love all things Nautical, and I kind of want to frame this card! The background on the Harbor card collection is interesting too:
THE HARBOR COLLECTION FEATURES VINTAGE CUTS FROM THE 1940S. THE BLOCKS WERE FOUND WITH THE MARKINGS “H C HANSON” ON THE BOTTOM – A LITTLE RESEARCH TURNED UP HAROLD CORNELIUS HANSON, ONE OF THE MOST PROLIFIC BOAT DESIGNERS IN THE NORTHWEST WITH OVER 2000 DESIGNS IN HIS 57 YEAR CAREER. AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL, MANY OF THESE BOATS ARE TUNA SEINERS.
Stamps – Value $1.50
Each Nicely Noted package also comes with stamps to mail your letters.
Verdict: My verdict on this subscription is almost always the same = if you love letterpress cards, I think you will be very happy with the quality of cards Nicely Noted curates. It’s not the best retail-value card subscription, but if you are looking for unique cards from letterpress makers across the country, I think it is great.
