PostMark’d Studio Review June 2017
PostBox is a card box from Postmark’d Studio. Each PostBox subscription comes with a monthly, limited-edition selection of beautiful handcrafted artisanal greeting cards and postcards crafted by artists around the globe. They kindly sent us this box for review.
This is the very first box from Postmark’d Studios! We are so excited to be included in the inaugural PostBox card box. I love stationary! I’m the type of person that has to avoid stationary stores when I have my grocery money in my wallet, becuase if I go in all my money will disappear. I’m also one of the old souls that still sends out snail mail and Christmas cards. I feel like stationary is making a come back.
What You Get: Each month, your PostBox card box is filled with four greeting cards, one postcard, postage, and a fun artsy doodads such as a pen, pencil or knick-knack gadget based on a theme.
These stamps are just adorable! All of these stamps can be used for postage on the cards! So you could send these whale of a time cards out immediately if you wanted. No waiting in the post office line. Also included in this box are a pen, pencil and heavy card stock postcard.
Each subscription comes with a Postmark’d postcard to send out! Confession time, I use to have a postcard collection as a kid.
The greeting cards themselves are the highlight of the box! This month’s theme is “Whalecome!”
Did you know that whales are associated with unbridled creativity? We had a ‘whale of a time’ selecting these handcrafted artisanal cards for you to celebrate all day every day with friends and loved ones.
Having a Whale of a Time
Noteworthy Paper & Press is the creative genius of Taylor Valliant and Amy Dolan. These cowgirls are passionate about paper, letterpress printing and the belief that everyone needs splendid stationary.
Such a cute postcard! The art is amazing and the postcard itself is a really great size!
August & Oak love all things colourful and it is reflected in all of their creations. This husband and wife team use their original illustrations and turn them into delightful greeting cards and other brilliant paper products.
I love a good pun, especially when it involves an animal. I might have a hard time giving this one away.
MAN vs. GEORGE DESIGN. The designs are a wash of colour and vivid graphics which create a perfect harmony of image and text with all of the items they create.
Love the art on this! It’s perfect timing for weddings and grads.
Whale, Whale, Whale, What do we have here?
Kelly Shields is a letterpress artist and educator. Kelly loves that letterpress printing combines computer design with the old-fashioned printing process to create artful paper goods. Kelly is not the only artist in the family, as this punny little card was designed by Kelly’s daughter.
Mother daughter team?! Now I love this card all the more. Anything with a top hat and mustache has my vote.
Herman the Whale
Reyn Paper Company has made it their mission to create unforgettable greeting cards and paper gifts based on their unwavering love of paper!
Love this card! I really like how the art is from the inside out.
Postmark’d Studio June 2017 – Final Thoughts
I’m really impressed with this box! For their first one out of the gate it really is top notch. Solid theme, high quality items, fun bonus details and packaged beautifully. I love the highlighting of smaller artisans and businesses as well as the inclusion of their own postcard to the mix. We are starting to see more and more stationary boxes come out and I’m a huge fan of this! I’m a bit of a paper addict myself and I really feel like I’m finding my people here! What really sends this box over the top is the inclusion of stamps for your cards! I’m always so delayed on sending out cards because I can’t be bothered to get a stamp. I’m simply in love with Postmark’d! I really hope to see another box from them in the near future.
