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!

I thought that too. Otherwise it’s s cute card. And love the penguin card too. The way those penguin dads sit on the eggs while the mamas go off for food, lol!

Andrea

Ah Julie, you read my mind​! After seeing the baby Penguin went searching for baby Penguin stickers 😉

For it to be people of the world, they should have people of color as well.

When I read your comment I looked at the card a little more and although the faces seem to all have a white skin tone if you look at the styles of their hair and clothing you will see they represent lots of different countries/cultures without including color in the face. Maybe it’s a way to show that color doesn’t define the people of the world. Very artistic!
