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 to the US (International shipping is also available).
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!

My items were wrapped in tissue paper that was sealed with a sticker.
I received a personalized card.
There was a cute heart-shaped pool pin on the outside of the envelope!
There was an info card with all of the products listed.
The back of the card had info on one of the vendor’s from this month. What a cool “mail truck”!
Everything lifted right out of the box in one piece!
A Postmark’d Studio postcard is standard and comes in every pack.
Enough postage to mail four cards was included.
The back of the little card shows which combo adds up to enough to send a standard letter (55¢).
The postage is vintage! I love the patriotic color scheme/theme for this month!
Smudge Ink You’re The Best Greeting Card ($4.50) Maybe they hosted you for the weekend, or took your kids for the afternoon. Let someone know how much you appreciate them with this little cutie. Blank on the inside and with a matching blue envelope.
elūm Pool Float Birthday Card ($5.50) Summer birthdays are happening now, I have 3 of them in my family of four! The card says “Sit back and relax, it’s your birthday!” on the inside and comes with a kraft paper envelope.
First Class Lounge One In A Million Greeting Card ($4.38) I love the retro look of this card! The bathing suits have raised dots, the blue hat has raised ridges, and the pool water is glossy while most of the card is matte. Blank inside with a fancy blue polka dotted envelope.
Beach Ball Postcard came with its own beach ball! That’s not all – the beach ball IS the postcard!
Directions were on the card but pretty much you blow the ball up, address it, and write a note. No, you don’t need to deflate it, you take it to the post office and pay for postage and it is sent just like that. Unfortunately, after I blew up my ball I discovered it had a leak. All that hot air for nothing!
I’m All In Greeting Card ($5) I linked to a similar card but this one looks like a glass of rosé and the one on the site looks like Beaujolais. The card is blank on the inside and comes with a grey envelope.
from Artsy Doodad Postcard from is the company listed on the back of the info card, with the mail truck called Al Green. It goes from town to town (mainly in Southern California) and is a DIY mobile postcard center. They have ink and stamps and recycled cardboard that can be turned into a postcard. This card looks ready to be addressed but it came with a rubber stamp so you can make more.
What a cute idea, I know it would make me happy if I was out and about and could make my own postcard!
The July PostBox has some cute items and they are not your run of the mill cards, either. I never knew you could mail a beach ball and the Al Green mobile DIY postcard center made me smile. The stamps are always my favorite part, I remember seeing some of them way back when I was a child and that always makes me happy.
