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.

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.

    I love stationary and everything that goes with it- cute pens, stickers, etc. I, too, had pen pals in middle school and it was so much fun! Will definitely check out Pennie Post- it seems like we always need a card for something and I like having a variety of cards on hand.

    • You did too!!! Wasn’t it the best feeling finding a letter in your mailbox? In my family everyone knew I would check the mail everyday :)) Cheryl I think we would be really good friends if we met in real life – so much in common <3 Talk soon lovely, XOXO, Elif

    I think that all cards represent different days and emotions and, sure I love a cute card, but I think that a card is more meaningful and special when it is made by our loved ones. (Such as our kids) But how meaningful is it to get this subscription every month, I think that most people don’t need that many cards but it can sure come in handy in months like December. I do not want cards to be replaced by emails and texts.

    • I love cards of all kinds. Cute ones, from friends, made by my kids 🙂 they all have a special part in my heart! <3 hope tradition of writing handwritten notes sticks around always! XOXO, Elif
