PostBox is a NEW stationery subscription box by Postmark’d Studio. Each PostBox subscription comes with a monthly, limited-edition delivery of handcrafted artisan greeting cards and postcards created by artists around the globe. 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 knickknacks 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!

I love stationery! I’m the type of person that has to avoid stationery stores because if I go in all my money will disappear. I still send out snail mail and Christmas cards.  I feel like stationery is making a come back!

This month’s theme is Farmer’s Market!

The first card I received in the box is Everyday I’m Brusselin’! Located in Long Island, NY, Meeschmosh’s inspiration comes from random thoughts and everyday life. Michelle LaRocca is a graphic designer who is passionate about different printing methods. She is a hands-on kind of gal. Everything she makes is assembled by hand with love. I love this silly pun featuring some delicious brussels sprouts on the front. I have always loved them since I was a child. I kind of like that this card has does not have a specific occasion. Just send it off to another sprout fan!

The second card is I’m All Ears. Farmwood Press, located in Atlanta, GA, is creatively cultivated by the husband and wife duo of Chris and Katie Torres. Their presses are an extension of them and part of their family. They even have names! The details in their designs are whimsical. Letterpress cards are always nice! I love the embossed feel of them. This card would be great to send to a friend you’ve fallen out of touch with and want to catch up on.

The third card is A Bushel & A Peck and A Hug Around The Neck. 1canoe2, located in Fulton, MO, is an illustration and letterpress studio that is homegrown in the heartland of America. Their work is rooted in life’s natural beauty and a pursuit of curiosity. When you are catching feelings for someone and want to let them know how you feel, you can send this card to show your sweet side!

The fourth card is You Are One in a Melon. Alexis Mattox Designs, located in Springfield, UT, started as a love story. Husband and wife team, Paul and Alexis met on their first day of college and a seed was planted. They both have a zeal for art, she on the creative side and he on the business side. Their work showcases their passion for design, laser cutting, and paper! Watermelon is one of the first things that pops into my head when I think about summer foods. Picking up a juicy melon for a cook out at your local farmer’s market is essential when it’s hot, and this card with the little die cut bite can bring a smile to your BBQ host’s face.

The last cards are Tomato and Carrot Seed Packet Postcards. Found Image Press, located in San Diego, CA, carries over 35,000 images derived from vintage postcards, photographs, and illustrations dating from 1890 to 1945. The vegetable seed packets pictured on the postcards are from the Card Street Co., Fredonia, NY. The seed packets were originally printed by the Genesee Valley Litho, Co., Rochester, NY, in the 1920s. These vintage throwback seed cards are just so special and cute! These cards are perfect to send to the farming friend of yours.

I’m really impressed with this box! The first box was amazing and I love this one, too. There is a solid theme, high quality items, fun bonus details and it is packaged beautifully. I love the highlighting of smaller artisans and businesses as well as the inclusion of their own postcard to the mix. I am starting to see more and more stationery boxes come out and I’m a huge fan of this! What really sends this box over the top is the inclusion of stamps for your cards. I’m simply in love with Postmark’d! I really hope to see another box from them in the near future. Go check out Postmark’d here and use coupon code HOT20SALE to save $20 off a 3 month subscription!
