Snailbox June 2018 Review
Each Snailbox has a featured artist, and this month is Erin McManness of Raven Paper Co.
The cards came bundled in a lovely floral paper band.
Love Forever Stamps – Total Retail Value $2.00
These stamps are immediately recognizable as Rifle Paper Co.’s art and have really beautifully illustrated flowers on them with the word “Love”.
Bunny and Cactus Stickers
Next, there are four stickers to seal the back of the envelope of each card. There are two cacti and two bunnies- all four being incredibly cute.
Here For The Cake Birthday Card – Retail Value $4.50
Thie first card from Raven Paper Co is this pastel dream of an illustrated birthday cake. The words “I’m just here for the cake” in script lettering are in dark pink against the light pink birthday treat, surrounded by flowers and a candle. Below gives the “Happy Birthday” greeting and the inside is left blank.
Long Distance Hug Card – Retail Value $4.50
More great colorways adorn this card that has folded hands over a heart declaring “Consider this card a long distance hug”. There are so many people I can send this to since many of my friends are scattered around the country.
Belated Birthday Card – Retail Value $4.50
Wow- wouldn’t you know it, I don’t think I recall ever getting a belated birthday card in a subscription box. This is something I certainly need more of since I never remember to mail cards on time! I know exactly who this is going to receive this green and yellow card filled with florals and balloons.
Happily Ever After Ticket Card – Retail Value $4.50
The last card isn’t from the featured artist but is a letterpress card from a. favorite designs. The yellow card has green lettering that looks like a large ticket for “Happily Ever After” and can be used for an upcoming wedding. I think I safely sailed through most of the weddings for a while but who knows when the next one will pop up?
Verdict: Snailbox does a great job of curating cards from featured artists each month. I love that the cards always come with stamps and stickers, and they even matched the stamps with the cards.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but you have until the end of this month to receive July as your first. They ship on the 15th of each month.
Value Breakdown: For $20.00, you’re paying $5.00 per card/stamp/sticker. Even though the cards this month all have a retail value of $4.50, you’re getting the stamps and stickers as well so it still more than evens out.
