Nerdy Post is a subscription that sends original, hand lettered stationery, posters, prints, stickers, and other paper ephemera around a different theme each month! Not into that month’s fandom? You can easily skip your shipment. It does come in a tube mailer!
The theme for September is SUPERNATURAL!
They also have a step-by-step procedure on how to safely flatten your items.
Everything in my September box (or tube)!
“You Don’t Have To Be Ruled” Poster: A poster featuring Castiel’s quote from the episode “My Heart Will Go On,” where Balthazar un-sinks the Titanic and Castiel unveils the cruelty and capriciousness of Fate to the Winchesters.
This photograph shows the curling of the items immediately after removing from the tube. We pressed everything under heavy objects for a few days before taking the remainder of the photos. We do wish they’d figure out some way to ship everything flat.
Daily Planner Sheets: Plan your Tuesday with this pad, seven days a week!
Koozie: A Koozie feels right at home in this fandom, though it’s more of a Booby thing, as the boys tend to prefer bottles.
This pad references the “Mystery Spot” episode, one of my absolute favorites, where Dean gets caught in an endless Groundhog Day loop.
Temporary Tattoos: A pair of temporary tattoos — they appropriately included two so you can share with family!
Sticker: This custom sticker references another one of my favorite episodes (The Trickster always makes for a hilarious episode!), “Changing Channels,” where Sam and Dean get trapped in TV shows like in the John Ritter movie, Stay Tuned. In the opening credits, the two frolic about, play catch, race scooters, and even ride a tandem bike in a bit of a Laverne and Shirley homage, as a custom Supernatural theme song plays — the artist even made sure to capture the baguette and groceries!
Nerdy Post Card: This card contains several Supernatural references — within each letter of “POST” is a nickname used in the series: Moose (Crowley’s name for Sam), Assbutt (Castiel’s attempt at an insulting address to Michael in “Swan Song”), Idgit (Bobby’s preferred way to reference each of the Winchester boys), and Squirrel (Crowley’s name for Dean). With “CARD” is a Castiel quote, acknowledging his unfamiliarity with a reference to the Back To The Future Delorean.
The flip side captures Sam’s flippant remark to Dean during the episode “Slumber Party,” professing that he hasn’t read all the GOT books yet.
I loved this box! Fandom subscriptions can be hit or miss, but it’s hard to go wrong with a Supernatural box! It was really great that the items weren’t merely vague references to the imagery of the series — they used actual quotes from some of the more memorable and quirky scenes in the series. I could tell that the creators are actually Supernatural fans, because they reference scenes from the episodes that fans remember and love the most.
