Everything you get in Nerdy Post is handmade by Alexis, Nerdy Post’s creator. Here’s what their site says:

“…we wanted to provide unique, high-quality designs that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Hand lettering and illustrating these designs means that nothing is created using fonts or stock images from a computer. Designs are of course digitized in order to be printed on the products, but they will retain their hand-crafted quality.”

It’s Nerdy Post‘s birthday, and Alexis is celebrating with a ton of designs that nod to a myriad of her favorite fandoms.

Firefly Poster

Ooo, what a romantic print with an amazing quote from Joss Whedon’s TV show Firefly. I’m sort of so-so about the design, actually (I feel like it doesn’t need the tiny drawings of Mal and Inara), but the quote is so awesomely iconic that I don’t mind too much. I like that I have so many posters from this box that I can swap ’em out depending on what I’m currently feeling, what my aesthetic is, or more importantly, what I’m watching (again).

Game of Thrones Mini Print

I love collecting the mini prints from this box. They’re about postcard sized and feature such gorgeously vibrant colors. I’m always amazed at how Alexis incorporates huge amounts of dialogue into neat, tidy designs—this print is a great example of that. Did you notice all of the words on the ribbon rippling through this quote by Jon Snow’s good friend Sam.

Hamilton Quote Mini Print

Um, so, this is AMAZING. I think this is my most favorite design/color-combo that I’ve seen in this box yet! This print earns points for being a Hamilton reference, but also because it reminds me of those airbrush stores you’d see at the mall in the ’90s, which, to me, is so hilarious and delightful that… ugh! I just adore this piece!

Sherlock Holmes Mini Print

Every so often, Alexis calls upon other artists she admires to create pieces for the box. This design, for example, is by Instagram user @itslauracrow. You can tell the style is a bit different from Alexis’—I don’t love it quite as much, but I do like the way this design looks like a book page. And the sassy Moriarty illustration really looks like it could live on an old-timey book!

Iron Man Bookmark

This velvety smooth bookmark features a great, precocious quote from Iron Man (who I just loooooove) done in heroic, metal-like script. I like the Alexis is always very aware of what context her designs will be seen in—if someone interrupts you with your nose in yet another book, this would be the perfect quippy response. I love the way she integrated the little arc reactor designs in there, too!

Lilo and Stitch Bookmark

Alexis mentions that this double-sided bookmark should be called the “troublemaker” design, with its Iron Man quote on one side and this quote about clever, klutzy Stitch on the other. I love the colors on this side. I kind of wish the two design aesthetics matched a little better, but both sides are so cool in their own way that I’m happy to use them both.

Pride and Prejudice Bookmark

This design was done by @herbookishthings, but it shares the elements of Alexis’ aesthetic that I really love. Also, hello, the Mary Bennet quote here is so sassy and awesome. If anyone ever interrupts my reading, I could see taking a glance at this bookmark and resolutely dismissing my interruptor!

Tolkien Bookmark 

This design was also done by a guest artist called @sorryforwastingpaint. This isn’t my favorite style (the combo of colors isn’t my thing, either—the red and teal feels kind of weird to me), but I do love The Hobbit. If I want to stop myself from getting to engrossed in reading, I can flip the Pride and Prejudice design over and remind myself that other adventures are waiting beyond the pages of my book!

Dr. Who Fat Bookmark

Alexis makes these “fat” bookmarks, which are about twice the width of a normal bookmark. They’re great for bigger books, or even planners and notebooks (I have one living in a sketchbook right now). I love when Alexis chooses quotes that are inspiring and motivating. She’s really helping me fill every corner of my day with positive, playful little moments like this blue bookmark.

Star Wars Fat Bookmark

The back of the bookmark has this colorful design by @inkandwonder. As a woman, I personally love the girl power vibe of this illustration (and Star Wars in general). Don’t be confused, though—the quote is actually from Shmi Skywalker, not Leia!

Narnia Sticker

“Courage, dear heart” is such an iconic quote from Aslan, the god-like lion from the Chronicles of Narnia. I love the unique shape of this design, and the nice quality of this sticker (as usual, it doesn’t seem water resistant or anything, but it’s nice and thick and smooth).

Stranger Things Coaster

Oh my gosh, I love Stranger Things so much, and this waffle-shaped coaster couldn’t be cuter. I like how subtle the “Friends don’t lie” quote is integrated into the grid of the waffle. So cute! This is going on my coffee table, stat.

Salt + Burn Supernatural Wax Melts

How cool! This collaboration with NerdWicks is pretty cute, though I’ll say that the anti-possession symbol had already started to crumble a bit in the bag by the time it got to me. I’ve got to get a little wax-melting device (what do you call those again?) to set this inside. It does have a delightfully autumnal scent. Who knew I’d like the smell of Hell Fire so much?

Harry Potter Bracelet

This is a neat little item that’s unlike anything I’ve seen in this box before! At first, I thought it was a hair tie, but in actuality, it’s a little fabric bracelet with cute illustrations of Harry Potter imagery on its white fabric (think owls and lightning bolts and the like). I never considered wearing a bracelet like this before, but I think it’s such a cute idea.

Coloring Postcard

Finally, we have a coloring postcard—something that appears in every box, but with a new design each time. It’s perfect how this postcard features a TON of different color-able quotes from the full spectrum of fandom world for the anniversary.

Verdict: I’m such a big Nerdy Post fan, especially this month when I got 15 different designs to enjoy for just $13.95 a month. Granted, a few of the designs were fronts and backs of the same physical item, so I’d have to pick which I’d admire, but I’m not complaining. I feel like I’d gladly spend $1-$2 at the very least for some of these high-res, super cute designs in a shop. I’m glad that there were so many different fandoms featured here (though that’s not normal—usually it’s one fandom per month). I found so many designs to love. I find these pieces fun to put to use, to frame and display, or even just collect as memorabilia.

What did you think about the items in this month’s Nerdy Post box?

  1. I love the designs! I do the shirt sub and the shirt this month was epic, I have worn it 4 times in 2 weeks and that was me holding back! 🙂

  2. This was my first Nerdy Post box and I loved it! It does something that only a few sub’s have. It bought the biggest grin to my face.

    I have bad allergies and typically hate smelly stuff but reading about the melt convinced me to keep it. My own personal Dean reminder is now with all of my figures and plushes where the scent doesn’t drive me bananas. And, as far as maxes goes this isn’t as crazy as others. Must be the pie scent. Who doesn’t love them some pie?

    I thought I’d really love this sub for the bookmarks. (And I do! I love every bookmark and don’t mind that they are double sided.). But, I really love the prints! I usually have a meh reaction to prints. I get so many and don’t typically do much with them. However, both a Firefly and a Hamilton print?!? I am in heaven! I love the quotes (although admittedly both of those are chock full of awesome quotes) and I am glad the letter included a note of how to safely flatten the rolled poster.

    I am so glad I took the plunge with this sub.

    • Yay!!! I’m so glad you’re liking it so much, Loba! Nerdy Post really does crush it with the quotes, don’t they? Love! Thanks for reading 🙂
