This review is for the PostBox, $30.95 per month, box.
For the second edition of PostBox, Postmark’d Studio has chosen the theme “Farmer’s Market” and I am loving it! Bring on the veggie and fruit puns!
The stamps included this month are vintage, and in smaller denominations, so they’ve included how to arrange if you’re unsure!
Like last month, they kick things off by including a postcard and pencil branded with Postmark’d Studio.
Everyday I’m Brusselin’ Card – Value $5.00
Tee hee! I love this silly pun featuring some delicious brussel sprouts on the front. I have always loved them since I was a child (weird, right?), so these bright green sprouts speak to me. I kind of like that no real occasion is needed here. Just send it off to another sprout fan.
“I’m All Ears “Card – Value $6.00 (similar linked from their shop)
Letterpress cards are always so nice, I love the embossed feel of them. This one has two happy corns on the front, hoping to hear what’s new! This card would be great to send a friend you’ve fallen out of touch with and want to catch up on.
“A Bushel & A Peck and a Hug Around the Neck” Card – Value $4.50
Onecanoetwo brings you this cute bushel ‘o peaches card with an even cuter sentiment. When you are catching feelings for someone and want to let them know how you feel, you can send this card to show your sweet side. 😉
When you think of summer food, I bet watermelon is one of the first things to pop into your head. Picking up a juicy melon for a cook out at your local farmer’s market is essential when it’s hot, and this card with die cut bite can bring a smile to your BBQ host’s face.
Tomato and Carrot Seed Packet Postcards – Total Value $2.00?
These vintage throwback seed cards are just so special! Perfect to send to the farming friend of yours who is knee deep in soil all summer, growing those veggies for their local CSA program!
Carrot Pen with Magnet – Value $1.99
Well- I’ve found the PERFECT pen to write my grocery lists with, which will even stick to my fridge! Thanks, Postmark’d Studio!
Bonus Sunflower Seeds – Value $0.75 (linked to similar)
Yay! They’ve included a bonus sunflower seed packet to grow some of your own!
Assorted Postage Stamps – Total Value $2.30
Lastly, the stamps this month are assorted veggie and fruit stamps! These are vintage and have lower values than your current standard stamps, so you can mix n match and arrange on your envelope. Postage stamps never expire!
Verdict: Postmark’d Studio’s PostBox brought the fun veggie puns this month with their farmer’s market theme that’s perfect for August! The curation was well done and included a lot of great small Etsy stationery purveyors. I loved all the cards I received this month and was especially tickled by the magnetic carrot pen and bonus seeds to plant Sunflowers. Including the postage the sent to mail out your cards, I estimated this box is worth $27, which is a bit under the $30.95 cost ($25 + 5.95 shipping). Even though it doesn’t quite add up, you’ll receive the promo pencil and postcard and won’t have to make a special trip to the post office to buy stamps.
