Nicely Noted January 2019 Review
Each month there is a cute note from Nicely Noted‘s founder, Perry. She wishes us a big happy New Year!
This card also has some info about the talented studios that our cards hail from.
Now, on to our cards!
Big Thanks Card by Bench Pressed – Retail Value $5.00
Just look at this handsome whale! Getting this thank you card in the mail would sure put a smile on my face. I tend to like everything I see from this studio because their products are always sweet and a little bit cheeky. Our whale comes with a blue envelope worthy of the sea.
Big (cozy) Hug Card by Big Wheel Press – Retail Value $5.50
Who doesn’t love a big cozy winter sweater? Send a close friend some love with this paper version. Included is a simple kraft envelope.
Holy Smokes Birthday Card by Lucky Horse Press – Retail Value $5.00
I love this card so much because of the Smoky Mountain reference and the cute bear. I am from Tennessee and spent a few college years living very close to those mountains! I will send this card to my mom, who dreams of owning a little cabin in those very mountains someday. Even if she reads this, she will hopefully forget by May!
Nicely Noted package always comes with stamps to send along with your cards. It is a great way to give your envelopes a special and unique look since these particular stamps are usually no longer in production.
Verdict: Nicely Noted is one of my favorite little stationery subs because I can’t get enough letterpress! The trio of cards this month was darling (no surprise) and my favorite would have to be that handsome bear. I have yet to get a card in this subscription that doesn’t make me smile.

Value Breakdown: For $20, we got an estimated $17.00 worth of stamps and cards in terms of retail value. I have found that this sub generally doesn’t exceed the cost, and often is just a little bit lower in overall retail value. A huge part of this subscriptions additional value (at least to me) is the convenience, the creative curation, and the opportunity to support smaller letterpress studios. It beats running to Target to grab a random big company card any day, hands down.
