The info card that comes in the Pennie Post envelope details the theme for the month, which is “Foodies.” There are also some cards for Mother’s Day in the pack. Perfect timing!
All of the cards are blank inside and are the same size so that you can pick and choose between the four neutral-toned envelopes included in the pack.
All of the cards have a super-cute Pennie Post logo on the back!
Matcha Appreciation Card – Value $3.75?
I’m a BIG fan of matcha tea (and matcha lattes—yum!), so I swooned when I saw this card. I love the peaceful colors, simple design, and the pretty face on this matcha mug. Puns can be pretty divisive—either you see them as delightful dad jokes or groan-worthy bad jokes. I like ’em, especially in greeting card contexts. I’ll have to wait for just the right occasion to use this card (maybe after a tea-loving friend and I have a fun day out and about…), but I think it’s awesomely unique.
This card isn’t available on the Pennie Post site, so I linked to a similar style to show value.
The World Is Your Oyster Card – Value $4.00?
This card isn’t on the Pennie Post site either, so I linked to a similar style. This card has a unique, canvas-like texture to it, but isn’t thick. I love the message and the beautiful, watercolor design of the oysters! The colors are dreamy and artful, but the illustration is still pretty minimal and simple. This card could easily be a graduation card or the perfect pick for anyone heading out on a new chapter or adventure.
Celebration Cupcakes Card – Value $4.00?
How cute is this card? I love cards with more all-purpose messages on them, and there’s no more all-purpose than “Yay!” This card has a smooth finish, and the pastel colors look super buttery against the white card. Birthdays, weddings, baby showers—this card is good for them all!
This one isn’t on the Pennie Post site, either (again, I linked to something similar). I like that these designs are unique and more hard-to-find!
Mother Like No Otter Mother’s Day Card – Value $4.00?
This is the last card in the box (also not on the site, so I linked to a similar watercolor style). It doesn’t follow the “Foodies” theme, but I will be needing a Mother’s Day card very soon! The paper has a nice texture to it, and I love the otter design. It’s definitely more cutesy than cute, but hey, my mom would love something like this!
Verdict: I really love the moments when Pennie Post shows its more sophisticated side, like with the oyster card (it was just so pretty and unique, too). The other cards were cute, but they teeter right on the edge of being too cute for my personal taste. That said, I know plenty of people who would love to receive one of these adorable cards. And most of the cards are versatile enough to fit many different occasions. The pack is $11.63 with free shipping, but I estimated about $15.75 in value inside. I think this pack is totally worth it, so long as it fits the aesthetic you like!
