Laserbrain Patch Co July 2018 Review
Each month you'll see a small coloring page/postcard in your bubble mailer that fits the theme on the back of the info card. This one has an Edgar Allan Poe poem quote with a raven to color in.
On the reverse side, you'll get to read all about what's included and how it pertains to the theme. This month is all about the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Raven Patch - Listed Value $9.00
This patch is a hefty 4.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide and features a raven sitting atop a skull and book. Edgar Allan Poe fans would be delighted to iron this on a tote or jacket to show their love of macabre poetry.
Coffin Edgar Allan Poe Quote Enamel Pin - Listed Value $10.00
I love the dark feeling to this pin, but upon googling noticed that it is unfortunately misquoted with an additional "the" popped in. It's a couplet written by Poe that simply goes "Deep in earth my love is lying and I must weep alone", presumably about the death of his wife. It's unclear whether it was a personal thought or an unfinished poem, but it's haunting and beautiful.
Nerdy Post/Joshua Belanger Bookmark - Listed Value $5.00
I'm never a huge fan of paper goods like prints or bookmarks in subscription boxes because the value doesn't seem as great as something like a pin. One side is an illustrated quote "I remained too much inside my head and ended up losing my mind" while the other side has a sketch from tattoo artist Joshua Belanger's sketchbook of some sort of dark beast. The bookmark itself is huge and honestly probably as big as a lot of the paperback books I read.
Plastic Feather Pen - Listed Value $2.50
The last item fits well with the Poe theme since he was a poet and a feather dipped in ink is a classic visual of such a profession. I received a metallic blue colored one and was pleasantly surprised by the thin tip and quality ink. It's a bit large for my tastes and more of a novelty, but I can pass it along with someone who has a more dramatic flair.
Verdict: Laserbrain Patch Co. was a miss for me this month. Though I can appreciate the dark writings of Poe, none of the items particularly excited me except for the pin which had a slight misquote (It would also be remiss of me if I didn't point out the misspelling of his middle name on the info card🤐). All of the listed values seem reasonable except for the $5.00 bookmark, so the overall cost of $16.00 isn't bad if you like the pin and patch.
