This month’s theme is… Supernatural! The tube comes with a coloring book style card inspired by Supernatural. Awesome!
Alexis from Nerdy Post includes a note all about the items in the box. Her enthusiasm for the items makes me even more excited about them!
Since Nerdy Post comes in a tube, rather than a box, they include this little set of instructions for flattening this awesome print:
This glossy poster features a quote from Castiel, the charmingly naive, trenchcoat-clad angel. I like the way Alexis’s lettering weaves in and out of itself—it’s really artfully done. Plus, the gritty color scheme feels straight out of a Supernatural episode.
Next up is a bookmark with a quote on either side. This first one is from Henry Winchester, Dean and Sam’s time-traveling grandfather: “Adventures I enjoy are usually of the literary nature.”
On the reverse side, there’s a cheeky little quote from Sam: “Yes, Dean, I like to read books. You know, the ones without pictures.” So sassy, so darn cute. I love that Alexis took the time to find these perfectly bookish quotes for this bookmark. The designs feel very scholarly and back-to-school, too.
This drink cozy has two quotes on it. The first one is from Crowley, the wickedly charismatic King of Hell: “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a little Hell to raise.”
And on the other side, the cozy reads “Hunters Helper”—Supernatural’s gentle nod to booze. Both of these quotes are written in really cool script. I wish the quotes were a little more directly related, seeing that they’re on the same item, but the spirit, at least, is the same! I don’t find myself needing a drink cozy very often, but this one definitely worked—it kept my hand from getting cold and kept my drink from getting warm!
Tuesday Calendar Notepad
Remember this Groundhog Day-inspired episode? Sam gets trapped in an endless loop of Tuesdays… and now you can, too, thanks to this cute weekly calendar! What a fun way to keep track of big to-dos in your week. Each “Tuesday” has a different lettering and is printed lightly enough that it’s easy to write over. Fun!
This magnet has just enough stick for hanging a photo or important notes on the fridge. Plus it’s got the Winchester mantra and Ruby’s Knife on it, to help you get in the Supernatural spirit.
Sam & Dean Sticker
Pentagram Temporary Tattoos
The sticker of Sam and Dean is so cute! And those pentagrams? Those are temporary tattoos! How awesome is that? One was hiding inside the drink cozy… There are two sayings you can pick from, too: “Family Don’t End with Blood”, a quote from the show as well as one of its morals, and “Salt and Burn”, the process for expelling demons. I like that you can snip these sheets apart and wear these designs separately, or create your own combinations.
Verdict: Nerdy Post is so cool! For $13.95 a month, you get so many totally unique, artist-made items covered in quotes any true fan would love. The price shakes out so that each item is between $1-$2, which I feel like is more than fair. Many thanks to Nerdy Post’s artist, Alexis, for putting these awesome pieces together!
