Happy Mail July 2018 Review
Today is the Day Print
Happy Mail always sends a 7×10 print with each package and this month it’s a beautiful pink and blue sunset sky as a background to the metallic rose gold words “Today is the Day”, all underlined. If you’re a negative Nancy like myself, you may benefit from keeping this within eyesight of your workspace to keep you motivated.
They also like to send stickers that look perrrrfect on the outside of a card you’re sending through the mail! Here, there’s a sheet of 12 colorful round seals with summery goodness on them like sunglasses, popsicles, drinks, and others.
I Just Hearddddd Postcard
Postcards rule, and this one is super fun. It features an old style mobile phone with a speech bubble coming out saying “I Just Hearddddd!” and I cannnnn hear it! Whether it’s a new job, a move, a baby, or an engagement, this postcard can be used to congratulate a friend or on almost anything gossip-worthy!
Oh, hi! This petite little card is just big enough to jot down a quick note to someone you simply wanna say “hi” to. The illustration of various “hi” word bubbles has a subtle golden ombre effect and is blank on the inside. It comes with a matching yellow envelope.
Hey You Birthday Card
While I may not fully grasp why “Hey You” is spelled out in gum, this is certainly a unique birthday card. I tink it’s perfect for someone who doesn’t want a fuss made. It’s casual and doesn’t feel too special.
One Day at a Time
There are lots of reasons to get overwhelmed these days. This cards simple message with a vase of flowers and a calendar that says “One Day at a Time” is a good reminder that you should keep your eye on the present and not get too worked up about how things will pan out in the future. Sometimes you just gotta take it slow!
That Was So Cool of You Card
If you find the words “thank you” a bit too old-fashioned, perhaps try out this card. Pink, red, and marigold type with some hyped up triangles show the excitement in this one. It comes with an orange envelope to match!
Crushing It! Card
I sometimes think I overuse the words “crushing it” but I kind of like it, so whatever! If someone is doing a great job, you should recognize it and this crushed metallic rose gold can illustrates it well.
Beach, Please Card
A classic pun these days, the front of this card has a beach scene with a bikini, hat, sunglasses, and towel laid out with the phrase “Beach, Please!” on the inside. I’m not exactlty sure what the occassion should be to send this one but it should go to someone sassy.
Another seemingly vague card, this one is square and simply has a big ol’ asterisk on it. Is there something you forgot to say? Send it in this blue and green card!
Verdict: For $27.00, Happy Mail hooked me up with a print, postcard, sticker sheet, and seven greeting cards. If you’re always forgetting bdays and special occasions, this is a great sub to make sure you always have a card on hand to celebrate life’s wins and everything is pretty darn cute.
