Postmark’d Studio PostBox May 2018 Review

Military appreciation month

There is usually a letter-writing initiative or challenge on one side of the info card. This month highlights “A Million Thanks” which collects cards and letters for members of the military and their families to show appreciation.

Llama Mama Info Card

This month is extra exciting because the theme is “Llama Mama”! I just adore llamas and alpaca alike, so this is just wonderful. This side of the card details all of the items with a short description.

PostBox is always presented in a really special way. All of the cards this month are bundled with pompom ribbon.

You’ll always get a postcard and a pencil with your delivery. This one has been decorated with a yellow Llama to fit this month’s theme.

Assorted Forever Stamps x 6 – Total Retail Value $3.00

These stamps are sooo classy, don’t you think? There are 3 blue and 3 red that commemorates the 2016 world stamp show in NYC.

Spiral Paperclips

You’ll always receive some sort of paper accessory in your box. Here, they’ve sent a pack of 5 bright yellow spiral paperclips to keep things in order.

Llama Trinket Tray – Retail Value $15.00 (found here for $9.99)

An extra special accessory (in my opinion) is this adorable llama trinket tray! The white ceramic shallow dish is llama-shaped with turquoise, black, and white ink creating the details of this pretty baby’s face and decorative markings. I love a good trinket dish and this one happens to hold the paperclips rather well, so I can pop it on my desk. It’d also be perfect for storing small jewelry on your nightstand or dresser at home.

A llama on rollerskates? Now I’ve seen it all. This set comes with two postcards featuring a safety-conscious llama out for a neighborhood skate, illustrated by Paper Wilderness. Even the back is cute with a place for a message, address, and stamp.

Oh Hello There Llama Card – Retail Value $5.00

Haha- this llama looks so realistic to me. As if I took a photo of one mid-chew who was startled by my presence. The line drawing is complemented by orange, red, and yellow coloring and comes with an orange envelope to match.

Happy Birthday Llama Card

Wow- this has got to be my favorite card of the month. I just love the purple and green colors of this letterpress card and the illustration is just gorgeous! The scene is of a llama on a grassy knoll pleasantly smiling while holding up a banner reading “Happy Birthday”.

I Llama You Card

Light and dark orange hues create the image of two llamas snuggling with the sentiment “I Llama You” across the top of this letterpress card. The inside is left blank for you to include any message you ‘d like and it comes with a kraft paper envelope.

Llama Tell You Card – Retail Value $5.00

Oooh- actually maybe this is my favorite one. This beautiful letterpress card from Farmwood Press spans both the front and back of the card with golden rolling hills, blue and black clouds, and golden llamas atop each peak. The front says “Lemme Tell Ya, I Miss You Lots”. Perfect for that friend or loved one that you don’t get to see too often.

Verdict: I received four cards, two postcards, some paperclips, and a super cute llama trinket tray Postmark’d Studio’s PostBox. Not all of the cards were available to buy online, but it’s so nice that Postmark’d Studio highlights smaller card makers that I would never know about otherwise.
