All the cards came wrapped in a clear protective sleeve. Included with every subscription is a  note from Pennie Post that says the theme is, “Back to School”. It also tells you the name of each card.  Cards from this subscription have been blank so far.



Library Card and Sleeve – Value:$7.50?

Super cute! This card comes with a self-adhering sleeve to paste into a book or add to a project. The price is pretty steep, I hope that it actual comes in a set, but the website doesn’t say.



Chemistry Letterpress Card – Value: $5.00

Another cute design. I love the little heart bubbles in the bottle. Honestly, this card doesn’t give me a back to school vibe, I’m only thinking of Valentine’s Day. But I still love it and can see myself sending to a niece next February.



Watercolor Owl Birthday Card – $4.00

Pennie Post makes a number of cards in a watercolor design. They are done so well and I love the one’s I’ve received so far. This owl card will be great to send to any school aged girl on her birthday. I wish the owl would have had on a varsity jacket or bookbag to fit with the theme.



Hello Apple Note Card – Value: $2.25 ($13.50 a pack)

Perfection! The detail, the font, the green envelope…there’s nothing to change here. It’s so beautiful.  I’d love to see a version of this note card as a postcard as well. I would have no problem sending this to a friend, or to one or our kiddo’s teachers.

Verdict: This September, Pennie Post had an estimated retail value of $18.75. I wasn’t totally sure of the value on the library notecard, but the value would still be worth the subscription cost. I thoroughly enjoyed every card but a few items pushed the envelope of the intended theme.

What did you think of this month’s Pennie Post?

  1. I love Pennie Post. I’ve subscribed for two months so far, starting with Sept 2016, and I’ve been delighted each month. I actually ended up canceling my Ipsy bag in favor of Pennie Post. I love getting a surprise in the mail each month for not very much money, and I feel like I actually use the items from Pennie Post, whereas the Ipsy items were starting to build up without being used.

    I also love how PP encourages me to connect with people by writing a quick note. It’s a gift that I can share.

    I just got my October Pennie Post shipment and I thought it was even better than September. Looking forward to reading your review, Celicia!

  2. I get this box but was highly disappointed this month. I have no use for any of these cards. Why do I need back to school cards? I’m not a teacher.
