Postmark’d Studio PostBox August 2018 Review

There’s a handwritten thank you note from Anne of Postmark’d Studio in a mini letterpress card. How special!

 

 

Plus, there are always a postcard and a pencil included in each package. This month’s is a very stardust-y silver!

The cards are always beautifully bundled together, this month with sparkly navy ribbon.

One side of the info card reveals this month’s theme: “Starry Nights” because, as the card states: “hot summer days bring clear, cool starry nights!” On this side, Postmark’d offers suggestions for whom you may like to send each card.

The other side offers a step-by-step guide to writing a fan letter to be sent to a “star” you admire.

Sally Ride Forever Stamps x4 – Total Retail Value $2.00

King Eider Postcard Forever Stamp x1 – Total Retail Value $0.35

Dr. Sally Ride was the first woman in space, so these are very fitting of this month’s theme. I’m not too sure how the King Eider, a large duck of the Arctic coastal waters, does. Nonetheless, it’s a very pretty stamp!

“Mountains of Thanks” Card – Retail Value $6.00

The first card features an illustrated mountain scene and says “Mountains of Thanks”. Some of the peaks feature a metallic gold finish. There’s a big bright moon on there, too. This would be a great card to send to a person who really went above and beyond for you in some way.

“Thinking of You” Card – Retail Value $4.50

Is there someone in your life who you think of every time you look up at the moon? Let them know with this sweet card made of 100% post-consumer recycled fiber!

“You’re So Stellar” Card – Retail Value $5.00

Each year during the month of August, I like to do what I call “August Angel Acts” where I make a concerted effort to connect with someone and/or do something good for the world each day. I think this card with its shimmery copper envelope will definitely brighten someone’s day!

“Looking for Rainbows” Card – Retail Value $4.50

This card would serve as a sweet way to let someone going through a tough time that you’re thinking of them.

“Aurora Borealis” Card – Retail Value $3.95

The Aurora Borealis nears to top of my list of things to see in this lifetime. Until I make it up to Alaska or northern Canada, this holographic postcard is a really neat way to see the Northern Lights. This one I may just keep for myself on my desk to stare at when I “space” out!

Moon Logbook – Retail Value $5.50

Now that you’ve got your gaze turned upward to the stars, you need somewhere to take notes on where you were when you spotted all those constellations! This 32-page, unlined notebook is just the right size to slip into your pocket or purse.

“Far Out” Patch – Retail Value $6.00

Far out, indeed! This adorable iron-on patch is 2.75″ in diameter and makes an excellent addition to my backpack or denim jacket! What would you put it on?

Marco Metallic Colored Pencils – 6 count – Retail Value $9.99

The final item is a 6 pack of metallic colored pencils. The colors included are copper, gold, teal, blue, pink, and silver. The box also comes with a pencil sharpener hidden at the bottom of the box. If you’ve got an artist in your midst, they’ll no doubt love these shining, shimmering pencils!

Verdict: Postmark’d Studio’s PostBox really was out of this world. I’m excited to pop the cards in the mail so that I can let the stars in my universe know how brightly they shine. I received $47.79 worth of products for $25.00 a month plus $5.00 shipping.
