PostBox is a paper and stationery subscription box by Postmark’d Studio filled with handcrafted greeting cards, postcards, stamps, and other stationery items. 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!
DEAL: Get 40% off or $10 off your first box when you sign up for a 3-month subscription. Use the code HS404ME.
My items were wrapped in tissue paper that was sealed with a sticker.
I received a card with info on my new products. I enjoyed reading the short bio about the makers and where they are from. The theme for May 2019 is Blooming Blossoms! There were a few bonus items that were not listed on the card, such as a paper punch, postcard, and pencil.
The back of the card had a link to a website with directions on how to make paper flowers.
Eveything in the box was wrapped like a bundle with pretty cardstock paper and a ribbon.
I received a mini card addressed to me!
Anne, the owner, always sends a lovely handwritten note.
I also received a pencil.
A bonus postcard is always appreciated.
Lately Anne, the owner, has been sending vintage postage. These are past issues from the US Post Office and are official stamps: they are still good to use since they have never been used before.
It costs 55¢ to send a card so mix and match your stamps until you come up with the correct amount.
I love the interesting designs and the whole blast from the past vibe. Some of them I even remember seeing way back in the day on mail we would receive at my house.
Punch Bunch Mini Blossom ($4.49) I have a stash of paper punches around here from when I used to scrapbook! This is a paper punch too, so you can make your own confetti to place in an envelope before sending one of the greeting cards.
Mōglea Mini Letterquette Set ($25 for similar) I couldn’t find this exact set but there are similar ones on the website for $25.
One side of this unique bound book has 12 envelopes.
The other side has thank you cards! The cards say “Thanks” and are made of cardstock with gold foil accents. My daughter just graduated from college and she used most of them for thank you’s. They couldn’t have come at a better time!
Appalachia Press Hydrangea Card ($5?) I had to guess at the value of this card since they don’t sell directly to the public. The card features a lavender hydrangea (my daughter loves it!) and I like the ribbon detail on the front. Blank inside with white envelope.
Idea Chíc Peony Card with Sewn Envelope ($5) I love the flower on here because you can actually feel the flower! This is similar to a postcard, it doesn’t open up, so you write your note on the front or back as you choose.
Even the envelope is adorable and is sewn with thread.
Petra Boase Ltd Iron On Patch Card (£3.95, about $5.02 USD) has a lovely iron-on patch that you can attach to a bag, hat, or whatever you like. Instructions are on the back of the card. Blank on the inside with a bright day glo yellow envelope.
Thimblepress Tulip Florever Card ($8) Well this is an adorable idea, a bouquet of flowers that never dies!
There is a pop-out card that you can address and place in the holder. The mini card has gold foil around the edges.
The recipient just has to pop out the stand in the back once they open the card.
Just too cute! Comes with a white envelope.
PostBox is filled with the cutest stationery items, and they are always of high quality and are sturdy too. I love the themes, and this was perfect for a month with Mother’s Day without sending a card that is specifically for that reason. Each card had unique touches that made it stand out, and the thank you cards were just what I needed!
