Let’s see what’s in the November 2019 Postmark’d PostBox!
Everything was shipped in a small white box with a Postmark’d Studio logo on top.
A peek inside!
All boxes come with a little hand-written note from the founder. — Such a nice touch!
A 2-sided info card revealed the theme for November’s PostBox — “No Place Like Home”. It also listed all of the cards included, along with the artists who made them. The reverse side of the info card featured an introduction to a postcard designer named Paula and her passion for snail mail.
The items were all neatly stacked together and secured with a pretty red & white ribbon.
Next to You Violet Press/Longmont, CO
This letterpress card features an illustration of a vintage-inspired sofa with the phrase “Next to you is my favorite place to be”. It’s printed on 118lb cotton, tree-free paper and is paired with a coordinating mint green envelope. While great for the holiday season, it can also be used for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or “just because”.
Ruby Slipper Catherine Greenup Visuals/Cambria, CA
It wouldn’t be a “No place like home” themed box without a little nod to The Wizard of Oz. The not-so-subtle reference to the movie comes in the form of this ruby slipper card by Catherine Greenup Visuals. Designed in collaboration with PostBox, the baby blue card is printed with a shiny red slipper modeled after the actual shoe worn by Judy Garland in the movie. It’s paired with a gingham-lined envelope inspired by Dorthy’s signature white & blue gingham dress.
Home Hearth Gotamago/Toronto, Canada
Aw… This card just gives me all the home-y feels! I’m pretty sure my mom had a vintage-inspired kettle just like the one in the drawing and she still has an old skillet with a looped(?) handle that my parents use on the regular. Nostalgic, cozy kitchen vibes galore here! 😀
No Place Like Home Post Rider Press/Los Angeles, CA
It’s true — there is no place like home for the holidays. Or any day, really. This card from Post Rider Press expresses that sentiment in a classy, non-flashy way with a row of houses surrounded by subtle debossed snowflakes falling from the winter sky. Pretty!
Hello From Lantern Press/Seattle, WA
This set of 5 world map postcards was created just for PostBox. It comes with tiny dot stickers to mark the current location that you’re saying “Hello from…”. 🙂
BONUS CARD: Hate Has No Home La Familia Green/Chicago, IL
November’s box included a bonus card from La Familia Green, an eco-friendly company that donates a percentage of every sale of their cards to Chicago-area animal charities. 🙂
Red Glitter Washi Tape
I’m not a fan of glitter, so I was VERY relieved to find that this washi tape doesn’t have any “fallout” when touched. It’s a great tie-in to the theme and perfect for the holiday season. 🙂
Stickers for Keepers Sticker Sheet
I didn’t see this listed on the info card, so I’m assuming it’s another little bonus item. — I’m not complaining! 🙂 The sheet contains 16 adorable stickers, all in different “house/dwelling” shapes. Cute!
Vintage Postage Stamps
November’s box included a variety of differently themed vintage postage stamps, along with a handy guide that shows which ones can be used together to equal a single stamp at today’s current postage rates. Note the festive red & white color scheme goin’ on!
As always, a thick/sturdy Postmark’d Studio postcard was also included — this time with the addition of some ruby slippers. 🙂
I was a little afraid that November’s PostBox theme was going to be a little too Wizard of Oz-y for my taste, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was mostly centered around “home”. As always, the cards were beautifully crafted and the curation was totally on point. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 40% on your 1st box when you sign up for a 3-month subscription! — Just use coupon code “2LRB404ME” at checkout.
