I’ve always been very fond of beautiful stationary. Since I was 6, the age I learned how to write & read, I’ve been collecting pretty pencils, pens, letter paper & envelope sets, and cards.
When I reached middle school age, I started participating in pen pal programs and had over 50 pen pals from all over the world up until I finished high school. We would share our life stories, our friendships, our hobbies, and send each other pictures. It was such an enriching experience which also gave me a reason to use the nice stationary I had safely tucked in, in a special drawer. 🙂
Although I am pretty tech savy nowadays, I still keep a lovely agenda, and a cute calendar, and am always on the lookout for unique, and well made cards to send to people I love on special occasions. It was a pleasure to discover Pennie Post’s monthly stationary subscription, and I was so excited to receive the blue envelope in the mail. It came with a Pennie Post sticker on it.
Here is how the Pennie Post subscription works:
- As long as you order before the 15th you receive the current month’s pieces. If you put in your order after the 15th, you receive the following month’s sub.
- Each month Pennie Post sends at least 3 stationary items such as postcards, notecards, greeting cards, and gift tags. Some items like Thank You, and Birthday cards will be sent more frequently. Seasonal cards may be included when appropriate.
- Pennie Post costs $11 for US subscribers and includes free shipping. The subscription also provides international subs at a slightly higher price of $13.50.
- Pennie Post doesn’t operate on an auto renewal system. You choose a pre-paid subscription of 1, 3,6 or 12 months, and when your sub runs out you can renew again.
Let’s take a closer look at the charming stationary items. In each month’s envelope there’s also an info sheet explaining and listing the names of the items included.
Doesn’t the envelope look at home with my full skirt dress necklace holder? <3
Here are each card out of my bright blue envelope.
Birthday Monsters Card
How extremely adorable is the monsters card & envelope set? This cutie pie will be included in a gift to one of my kids’ friends bday in the near future. Until then that happy little blue guy will be displayed on my sons’ dresser.
Bubbly Gold Foil Coaster
The congratulations gift card is in the shape of a coaster and reads Let’s Pop the Bubbly! It came with a gold sticker to complete the gold theme. I’ll save this for a loved one’s wedding, good news, or promotion. Below it’s seen among some bubbly. 🙂
Blue Birds & Berries Card
The final item in this month’s Pennie Post is the cuteness that is the Blue Birds & Berries card. This item is blank inside, and perfect for pretty much any occasion. For now I am thinking of keeping it on my mantlepiece until I find it a new nice home of course 🙂
Overall Impressions: For us stationary lovers, Pennie Post is a wonderful monthly surprise. The cards are made of quality card stock, and the designs are original. I think the subscription is also very convenient for busy people ( who isn’t nowadays) who would like to have cards for different occasions on hand at home ready to be sent on a moments notice.
