Father’s Day Penguins Card – Value $4.00
I love this little card! Penguins are definitely at the top of my favorite animals list, plus I’m from Pittsburgh, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team. (Go Pens!) I could see my dad being really charmed by this cute card—he tries to act all cool, but he has a soft spot for heartfelt greeting cards. Penguins are actually supposed to be really good dads, too, so this is an appropriate critter for this card!
Patterned Mini Notes – Value $3.00
These craft paper notecards are only about the size of a business card. I like the pattern—it reminds me of a woven blanket.
I’m not sure what I’d use these tiny notecards for. Maybe they’d work as an impromptu business card (like if I wanted to give my email or number to a new friend)? I kind of wish the website address wasn’t on the back of the card—it takes up a tiny bit of space and makes it seem like it’s part of whatever note I’m writing.
Feliz Cumpleaños Birthday Card – Value $3.75
I’ve never seen a birthday greeting card written in Spanish! I think that’s awesome! I have a few Spanish-speaking friends in my life, and I feel like they’d appreciate getting a card with a familiar greeting. The design is cute, too, with the different colors of garland and flags. I think the script is a little less cutesy than the other fonts I’ve seen on this company’s cards. I love the sunny hue of the envelope, too!
People of the World Card – Value $4.00
This card isn’t specific to an occasion like the other greeting cards are, which I like a lot. The drawings of the people are so sweet! I like the watercolor-esque details, too. I could see using this foldover card just for a quick note to a friend. I could also see popping it in a little frame and sitting it in a kid’s room!
Verdict: I really liked this installment of Pennie Post! The pack is $11.63 with free shipping, but I estimated about $14.75 in value inside. The cards were for timely celebrations, like Father’s Day and summer birthdays, and I really enjoyed the designs this time around. They were a little on the cutesy end, but not quite juvenile in my opinion. If you like the aesthetic of this brand, I’d definitely subscribe for this convenient, cost-effective pack!
