Postmark’d Studio PostBox September 2018 Review

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

Plus, there’s always a postcard and pencil included in each package.

The cards are always beautifully bundled together, this month with a classic red white and blue striped ribbon.

One side of the info card reveals the writing challenge for the month: “Thinking of You Week” in which you’re encouraged to send a card to someone every day for 7 days to spread a little cheer and reconnect.

The other side goes down the list of items included and shares the theme “Snails and Stamps”.

Tin of Vintage Postage Stamps

Stamps are always included in PostBox but this month is extra special because they’re legitimate vintage postage stamps that are presented in a super cute tin with a mail theme. There’s a little note inside from Anne and a guide to help you use the correct amount to use these on a letter or card in the present day. I am a total sucker for vintage office supplies and stationery so this is a wonderful surprise! It’s really cool to see the older designs and how cheap postage was in the past. I think my favorite is the one that says “P.S. Write Soon”. So cute!

I <3 Snail Mail Card

The snail theme and vintage stamps come through in this greeting card for sure. It’s a letterpress card that simply says I heart snail mail (or I ❤️🐌 … dangit there’s no postage stamp emoji). Each card is unique because they use a vintage stamp on the front which is such a cool idea. Perfect to send to a friend that enjoys receiving mail as much as sending it!

Hello Friend Card – Retail Value $6.00

The next card has a really adorable illustration of a gold foil snail atop a mushroom that says “Hello Friend”. This one is also letterpress and has a great aqua color along with the red mushroom. The inside it left blank for you to tell your friend all of the good things that have happened since you last spoke.

My Love Language Card – Retail Value $5.00

The design of this letterpress card is clean and precise. This card speaks to me because I feel like snail mail is definitely one of my love languages and all that harder to find reciprocated. The snail illustration has a heart in the middle of its shell and some pale pink details. Just lovely!

Sending Good Vibes Card – Retail Value $4.99

I really enjoy when card makers think outside the box and make something really different. This one comes folded into a paper airplane so you can “send good vibes” along with it. The bright blue foil pops against the pink accents and the matching envelope really ties it all together. Sometimes you need to send a message like this to make a friend smile. I know I’d love to get this one.

MT Postage Stamp Washi Tape & Cutter – Total Retail Value $7.59

Whoaaaaa yes! I am always super into the little extras that PostBox includes with the cards and this month is no exception. MT is one of the best washi tape companies out there and this tape has a really beautiful design that reminds me of Nordic designs. The use of soft oranges, greens, blues, and pinks with birds, horses, and bunnies is overwhelmingly cute. The cutter it super easy to use since you just thread it through and press it down to tear it against the serrated edge. What a special treat!

Love a Good Mail Day Postcard Set – Retail Value $10.00

The last item in this month’s box is a set of ten postcards that feature a beautiful illustration of colorful envelopes and packages laid out with flowers blooming out of one against a pale pink background. These are a great way to meet that 7 days of snail mail quota for the challenge! Just a short note is all you need to send these off to loved ones.

Verdict: Postmark’d Studio’s PostBox was out of control beauty this month, in my opinion. Everything was classy and I loved the vintage stamp + snail theme that came through in the curation. I feel like I say this all the time, but this may be one of my favorite PostBoxes yet! I love the letterpress cards they chose and the detail in creating the stamps collection, washi set, and overall delivery was stellar!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Normally when you sign up, your first box will be the following month’s box (they ship out around the 5th). But…

From Postmark’d Studio:

We reserve a few extra boxes each month. Please email [email protected], and we will gladly assist you with your purchase of any items available at the time of your request for the cost of the box + shipping.

Value Breakdown: While I couldn’t put a value on every item, at $30.00 for this box, you’re paying roughly $4.29 per card or group of items. Great deal seeing as though most are valued at much more!

  1. September was my first box with Postbox and I love it! The tin is my favorite thing and I’ve added all of the stamps I had before to it.

    It’s also had me send out more mail than I have since last year’s Christmas cards! My friends are loving getting things in the mail out of the blue. I’m really glad I got this subscription.

  2. My favorite so far! This is a great, well-curated subscription.
