Unlike Jill, I am totally OK with receiving note cards in subscription boxes. So much in fact that I ordered a note card subscription box called Pennie Post! This is my third Pennie Post and I just adore it so much. They describe themselves as a “monthly mailing of stationery goodies” which really is the perfect description. For $11/mo they will send you a little envelope with cards and other related stationery supplies. While I don’t find the value to be overwhelming, I do find that what they include would never be LESS than $11 either. And they always curate delightful packets of cards you don’t really find at Target or whatever. I really do love this subscription. Onto the contents…

This month, they included 3 cards and 8 gift tag stickers.

The first card they included was this little one-sided card that is very shimmery and has a matching shimmery gold envelope. I don’t think my camera caught how shimmery and pretty these are but they are just so pretty. The card stock is thick and nice and I would be thrilled to receive a card like this! One of my favorite parts of this subscription is receiving each card and figuring out who I should send them to each month. I recently collected a lot of addresses of our friends to send our announcements to so I think I am going to surprise someone who might not expect to receive a card from me.

I love the look of this modern Christmas card. Has elements of different Christmas sweaters and fun typeset. Inside it says, “May your days be merry and bright.” I love this. This is from elum letterpress and it is made with soy-based ink, if that is something that is important to you. I really like letter pressed cards so I am always impressed with those Pennie Press includes in the subscription.

I’ve noticed that each month they tend to put in a cute animal type card and I am not complaining. I love this little penguin with a hat and a scarf! I want one. I still haven’t decided who I will send this to, but I know it will brighten someone’s day!

The gift tag stickers are super functional for this time of year and I will definitely be using all of them. I think they are very cute and an awesome little bonus in this month’s box.

I’m going to rate this month an A. Everything was very much Christmas/holiday theme which was OK by me. I guess the only problem would be if I was Jewish or something but I still think it would be fun to pass a Christmas card onto someone that celebrated it? I don’t think I can really convey how much I love this “box.” I really love being able to make someone’s day by sending them cards and by being sent cards every month, this gives me the opportunity to do this on a monthly basis. I am interested in learning calligraphy and hopefully someday I might be decent enough to make the names of the recipients on the envelopes look pretty also! For $11/month, I find this to be a really easy and fun thing to do. Click here if you are learning more about subscribing to Pennie Post!

      There are more expensive ones out there but this is great for $11!

        Can you tell me the names of any others you might know? This is definitely something I want to check out.

          “Nicely Noted” is the other one I had heard of. But that one is $18/month for 3 cards and I thought that was kind of ridiculous. I want it, but cannot rationalize it!

            ugh, you’re right, $18 for only 3 cards isn’t worth it. That’s too bad. Thank you, though!
