The info card that comes in the Pennie Post envelope details the theme for the month, which is “Spring Fresh”. I love the dainty design of the branding.
Cherry Blossom Notecard – Value $3.50?
Notecards differ from regular greeting cards in that they’re one-sided—sort of like a fancy postcard. Pennie Post sells a lot of notecards on their site “boutique”, but I couldn’t find this exact one on the shop (I linked to something similar to estimate the value). Yay for hard-to-find designs!
This card has a nice thickness to it. There’s a bit of texture to it as well, almost like watercolor artist paper might have. I love the delicate design of the cherry blossoms. It’s almost as if they’re coming in and out of a fog—so pretty.
Most of these cards have the Pennie Post insignia on the back.
Three Chicks Card – Value $4.00?
This blank-inside, folded greeting card is versatile enough to work in a bunch of springtime situations. Will I use it as an Easter greeting? A punny greeting for a gal pal? Or just a sweet, sunny surprise for someone special? I love the cute expressions on the chicks’ faces and the bright colors.
Again, this design wasn’t on the site shop, so I linked to something similar.
Bestie Tea Cup Card – Value $4.00?
This blank card looks like another subscription exclusive, so I linked to something similar, rather than this exact design. I love this cute card! I like the whimsical, doodle-like drawing style a lot. It’s a great pick to send to a friend. My pals and I are big coffee drinkers, so I could see myself filling in around the “Hey Bestie” message with an espresso-hued colored pencil, haha!
Thank You Notecard – Value $0.38?
This subscription guarantees three items, so this fourth card is a bit like a bonus. Unlike the first notecard, this one is a thinner card and has a design on both sides. I couldn’t find this one on the site shop, so I linked to a similar style notecard.
Here’s the back. It reminds me of a classy necktie or business shirt. I could see using this to send a thank you note to an interviewer or mentor.
Verdict: I thought this Pennie Post pack was very cute. The cards ended up being right around $11.00, which breaks even with its price. I’m happy about that value since it’s rare that I can find more than a card or two at regular stores without spending close to $10.00. How much I enjoy a stationery subscription always comes down to whether I like the design aesthetic or not. These cards were a bit more dainty and simple, but in that, they’re versatile and have an understated personality to them. So this was a win for me!
