Let’s see what’s in the November 2017 Postmark’d PostBox!
Everything was shipped in a small white box with a Postmark’d Studio logo on top.
A peek inside!
As always, the items were all neatly stacked together and secured with a piece of decorative string.
A 2-sided info card revealed the theme for November’s PostBox — “Triple G: Gobble Gobble Gratitude”! It also listed all of the cards included, along with the artists who made them.
The reverse side of the info card introduced their “30 Days of Gratitude Challenge” that encouraged subscribers to write a note of thanks to someone new every day for 30 days.
Acorn Card, Inkadinkadoodle (Waupaca, WI)
I kinda have a thing for acorns, so I was instantly drawn to this particular card. It features a beautiful red letterpress printed design with a little brown acorn smack dab in the center. The blank inside card is printed on 100% cotton Savoy paper and comes with a matching red envelope.
Happy Thanksgiving Postcard Set, NattyMichellePaperie (Bishop, GA)
These colorful postcards feature beautiful artwork and hand lettering by artist Natalie Kilgore. The front has a traditional Thanksgiving turkey design along with the words “Happy Thanksgiving!”, while the reverse side has pumpkins, greenery, and plenty of blank space to write your message and jot down the recipient’s address. There were 5 postcards in all (same design).
Tom Turkey, Catherine Greenup Visual (Cambria, CA)
Another turkey design, but with a more minimalist approach. 😉 Catherine actually gold leafs each of these cards by hand, resulting in a truly one of a kind piece of art.
Grateful for your Kindness, Bred & Butter Paper Co (Dallas, TX)
A nice card to send at Thanksgiving or put aside to thank someone after the holidays. This foil stamped card features the words “Thank you for your kindness” in satin gold. The inside is blank and it comes with a 100% recycled envelope.
Turkey, Lovepop (Boston, MA)
I totally saved the best for last with this incredibly cool turkey card from Lovepop! I mean, how AWESOME is this thing?! The front features a neat looking laser cut turkey design, and when you open it up — BAM! A big ol’ 3D turkey friend! Hands down, the coolest Thanksgiving card I’ve ever encountered. 😀
Two shimmery gel pens were included in November’s box in a nice palette of autumn-y colors. These were designed to “capture the sparkle and glitter of stars to make handwriting extra-special”.
As always, a thick/sturdy Postmark’d Studio postcard was also included, along with a coordinating pencil.
Enough postage was provided to mail 4 greeting cards and 5 postcards. According to the info card, the 3D turkey requires extra postage, which was included. 🙂
A great assortment of Thanksgiving/gratitude-themed cards from PostBox! While I liked them all, the highlight was clearly that amazing 3D Turkey card. Too freakin’ cool! 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time (thru 11/30) you can get FREE shipping on your first month with coupon code “2LRBFS” OR sign up for a 3 month subscription and get 1 month FREE with coupon code “2LRB1FREE” (thru 12/31)!
