Nicely Noted October 2018 Review
There’s a brief intro note from Nicely Noted’s founder, Perry. And there’s an info card with details on each maker:
Now, on to the cards!
Evil Amulet Eye by Blackbird Letterpress – Retail Value $5
There is evil in the world! Everyone needs an evil eye amulet. A talisman to protect you from the evil eye curse, believed by many culture throughout the world, from Armenia to Afghanistan, Mexico to Spain and West Asia.
Most of the cards in this subscription are folded, but this unique one is flat with a cut-out shape. And this evil eye amulet card inspired the curation this month!
Thank You by Fugu Fugu Press – Retail Value $5.50
This is my favorite card in the envelope this month. 1. I am always trying to write more thank you notes and express gratitude – I can never have enough thank you cards! And 2. I love the bold block letters of this design!
Ouija Birthday Card by The Good Twin – Retail Value $5
In addition to thank you notes, I can always use more birthday cards and this one feels right at home for October. Also, I recommend checking out The Good Twin’s birthday card category – there are so many good ones! (I think I have to buy this one.)
Postage Stamps – Retail Value $1.50
Each Nicely Noted package also comes with stamps to mail your letters! This is a small but nice touch and makes me so much more likely to send fun, unexpected mail because I’m totally 100% prepared.
Verdict: Nicely Noted is a lovely little subscription if you love to send real mail, like to support independent artists, or if you like letterpress cards in particular. This subscription is perfect for making sure I always have the appropriate card on hand and encouraging me to send more mail in general!
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: For $20, we got $17 worth of stamps and cards. If you value the curation of this box and the reminder to send real cards every month, then I think the $3 difference could be worth it!
