PostBox is a paper and stationery subscription box by Postmark’d Studio filled with handcrafted greeting cards and postcards from around the world. PostBox curates the items to a theme and it costs $25 a month plus shipping. You can save on a longer subscription – save 10% on a 3-month sub, 15% on a 6-month sub, and 20% on a 12-month sub. Each sub is $5 a month for shipping.
Each month, your PostBox card box is filled with four greeting cards, one postcard, postage, and a fun artsy doodad such as a pen, pencil, or knick-knack gadget based on a theme. The value of the products in your subscription box will always be what you pay for each month, sometimes more. There may be a surprise bonus gift some months, so you don’t want to miss a box!

PostBox is perfect for those who enjoy sending a handwritten letter or who wants to keep thank you cards on hand. The items in the box would also make a nice hostess gift in a pinch.
I received a card.
The note ties into the theme, as you will see shortly. A handwritten card is always appreciated.
My products were wrapped with bright rainbow-colored ribbon.
It lifts out of the box in one piece but I also found another item in the box, too.
I received a card with info on all of my new products. I enjoyed reading the short bio about the makers and where they are from. The theme for July is I Scream You Scream!
The back of the card listed some fun facts about ice cream and even gave some writing prompts.
Everything in my box! What a bright box, it made my eyes happy just to look at it!
Ice Lolly Notes & Pencil ($15.99) was wrapped to look like a frozen treat from the ice cream truck!
It says it has 1000 colored notes and a pencil.
Plus, it looked like a push-up pop!
All of the yellow notes and half of the green ones have a hole in the middle. The others are a solid piece of paper with a sticky spot on the back, like Post-It notes.
The inside of the wooden pop is a pencil lead but I need to find a sharpener somewhere in my house before I can use it.
These are very small notes, and you can’t write much with a hole in the middle, but they are perfect for flagging pages in a book. Every cookbook in my house has brightly colored flags sticking out of them!
Postmarkd Card & Pencil comes standard in every box and yes, you can really send the postcard in the mail!
United States Postal Service Frozen Treats Stamps ($3) Inside this sweet little envelope were 6 stamps for adding a bright note to an otherwise utilitarian item.
These look so adorable, I adore them and maybe I need to buy a whole book of them for the summer.
Lana’s Shop Melt Away Greeting Card ($5.50) One thing I noticed about this month’s cards is that most of them have a bright envelope, which makes my heart happy. This card is printed on white cardstock and is blank on the inside but the envelope has beautiful bright-pink stripes inside!
We Heart Confetti Ice Cream Truck Postcard ($1.58) I can relate to this postcard, since I did a lot of running after the ice cream truck back in the day. I used to get a snow cone or one of those red and orange swirly stick things. I’ll probably set this on my desk and maybe put it in a frame, it is just too cute!
Here’s the back of the postcard.
Cards by Rachel Alana Neopolitan Postcard I couldn’t find this postcard so I linked to the greeting card instead.
Here’s the back of the postcard. I would suggest handing this card directly to the recipient because it is printed on thin paper.
Ladybug Press Life’s Sweeter With You Card ($5) Look at how vibrant these watercolor rainbow popsicles are! Even the envelope is sunshiney on a cloudy day. Blank on the inside.
Lucky Horse Press Coolest Creamsicle Card ($5) First of all, my picture and even the picture on the Lucky Horse website do not do this card justice. The background is so dark that I can’t tell if it is blue or black, and the popsicle is more like dayglo orange, it is so bright and the color combo makes this card pop. The envelope is also bright and the card is blank on the inside. The second thing I discovered is that the items on the Lucky Horse website have a retro vibe that reminds me of the 70’s and I need one of everything now.
Wishbone Letterpress You’re My Flavorite Card ($5) is printed on white cardstock and is blank on the inside. It comes with a kraft paper envelope and I also found an ice cream cone paperclip stuck to it. You can find more paperclips here.
Color Box Letterpress Hidden Messages ($6.50) It looks like this shop is taking a break but maybe they will be back soon. Look at how cute the matching envelope is!
The blue envelope can be removed so you can place a gift card or some money inside, and it says “Enjoy” underneath.
I thought the theme of July’s PostBox was spot on, and the bright colors and adorable illustrations were amazing. I think Postmark’d put a lot of effort into their subscription box and the presentation is outstanding. Even their information card is thoughtful. I enjoy finding this in my mailbox, and it makes me happy to think that someone might appreciate seeing one of the cards with a bright stamp in their mailbox when I send a card!
