*They kindly sent us this box for review*
I absolutely love to review Postmark’d Studio as it is one of the best stationery subscriptions on the market! I love sending snail mail, getting crafty and giving thoughtful cards.
My Postmark’d Studio PostBox arrived in a white mailer envelope with everything bound and packaged beautifully inside.
Anne (the owner) always includes a handmade card with a personal note – I feel so special every time I receive it. I love this month’s quote, “Everybody makes mistakes, that’s why they put erasers on pencils – Tommy Lasorda.”

Here’s a closer look at the September 2021 Postmark’d Studio PostBox…
Postmark’d Studio SEPTEMBER “PENCIL” PostBox Edition 5.4
“Hello September! The start of The Fall season and back-to-school inspired this classic theme of pencils. As you doodle and write your way through the month, remember there are three lessons to be learned from a pencil: 1. Everything you do leaves a mark. 2. Pain always sharpens you. 3. It’s what’s inside you that counts. Happy Mailing! -Anne”
Each Postmark’d Studio PostBox is so well-curated that I cannot wait to see what sort of back-to-school-inspired items Anne has included for this month’s PostBox. I am a teacher and just went back to school at the beginning of the month!
Ellie Pencil Card
“Good JuJu Ink The collaboration of talents of 3 friends. These three quirky friends realize that – with our powers combined – they could build a greeting card company focussed on encouraging modern people to slow down, write a letter, and stay present. At the heart of Good JuJu Ink is the notion of spreading good juju, good spirit, good energy — a.k.a. love.”
This card is so sweet! I have a close friend who is just obsessed with elephants so this card will be snail-mailed to her.
“With a strong desire to pour almost two decades’ worth of letterpress and design experience into her own business, Debra Barclay started Ancora Letterpress in 2017. She has worked as a designer, press operator, educator, bindery, plate maker, and at the earliest in her journey, a student and intern. She approaches each project with the enthusiasm of her first one, yet she brings the entirety of her experience and knowledge to the table. She takes pride in the details because beauty and the handmade makes a lasting impression.”
I am already such a fan of Ancora Letterpress. Her postcards are my favourite items to send as they are always well-designed and as well as high-quality. This is the perfect postcard to frame and hang on my classroom door. It is probably one of my favourite postcards made by Ancora Letterpress to date.
Just a Note Card
“Dear Hancock is a stationery brand located in Peterborough, NH, co-created by and featuring the illustrations of a husband-and-wife team. Dear Hancock’s paper goods are inspired by a mix of nostalgia, humor and an art form worth preserving.”
This little gem is by far the sweetest thing I have seen in a long time! This is just the note to brighten up someone’s day!
“The firecracker press is a letterpress design studio in St. Louis, MO. They are thinkers and makers, those of contemplation and action. They combine modern memes with tried-and-true techniques to make things that people love seeing and feeling. Since 2002 they have been inspired by simple Precision, high-quality, and a hybrid of the new and old.”
This postcard might have to be put up in my classroom as I am a teacher and it is just SO cool!
Words of Success
“The First Snow, located in Westminster, Co, is the dream job Darah, the owner and illustrator, has had since 2015. Creating pretty things for others to cherish and enjoy has always been what makes her heart warm. When you send a piece from The First Snow to a loved one, you’ll wish you could keep it for yourself.”
This card is amazing! It is covered in phrases that will encourage and provide positive affirmation. I cannot wait to send this one to a special friend. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate how stunning the inside of the envelope is?
Artsy Doodad – Pencil Socks
“Pencil socks! I think this whimsical Postmark’d Studio exclusive designed crew sock is on point and sure to become a favourite.”
These socks are so fun for me to receive as a teacher! I cannot wait to rock them in class to see what my students’ reactions will be.
“Vintage US postage to mail (4) letters.”
The postage this month is so cool. Subscribers always receive enough postage to mail the cards in their monthly postbox.
Postmark’d Studio Review September 2021 – Final Thoughts
The September Postmark’d Studio PostBox is so well-curated and it fits the “PENCIL” theme perfectly for back-to-school! All of the items are neat, high-quality and unique, and would be so fun to send or receive in the mail. I think my favourite items are the pencil socks and postcards, but as always, all of the items are awesome! Postmark’d Studio is a subscription that will keep you supplied with amazing and original greeting cards for every occasion. It’s the perfect box for stationery lovers and snail mail enthusiasts.
