The very first month! How cute is this info card? This month’s theme is WHALES.
The back of the card with some puns and a doodle exercise.
I have to say that I love the washi tape they added onto the card! It runs the entirety of the card and makes it look cuter.
Now onto the goodies!
Having A Whale of a Time by Noteworthy Paper & Press [x] – This was the first thing I saw on top of the pile and I couldn’t help smiling. This is adorable. XD I’m sure this postcard could brighten anyone’s day because of its unique shape and design!
Whale Hello! August & Oak [x] – This one’s on Etsy and retails for $4.50. I think this would be a great card to send to someone you haven’t talked to in a while – or an overseas friend. 🙂
Out of the plastic!
Herman the Whale Reyn Paper Company [x] – This one is super fancy and retails for $7.00.The blue/red contrast is so striking; I love it. 😀 It’s a birthday card that you should totally save for an awesome friend!
The die cut design is so nifty.
And there’s gold foil too!
Whale, Whale, Whale What do we have here? Kelly Shields [x] – The artist is on Etsy bu currently break! I think this has to be my favorite card – not just because there are THREE whales, but because they all have top hats. :p
I love the sense of humor and the illustration! I’m definitely saving this one for myself just to keep as a part of my card collection (because yes, I have one). Haha. 😉
Whale, Congrats! Man vs George Design [x] – This last one is also on Etsy and retails for $3.95. I might have to save this for next year when graduation season comes around again.
The back! My favorite thing about this card is that the trail of orange fish (that look strangely reminiscent of goldfish crackers…) wraps around the whole thing.
The play on “texture” by using different patterns is also really smart.
Too cute. :p
They also included a Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner Marker Pen and a special Postmark’d Studio pencil for you to write your cards with.
On top of that, they were also super thoughtful and included five Forever stamps! This way you don’t need to spend any money getting these mailed out, you can just slap one on your card and drop it off at your nearest postbox.
The very first Postmark’d Studio Postbox!
Overall enjoyment: I thought this was such a great month to kick off their subscription service. They chose a great theme (I mean, come on… who doesn’t love whales? Especially whales in top hats???) and all of the cards they included were so amazing. I loved seeing the different styles and I think it’s great that they’re supporting these independent artists by sharing their work with us! And I also really appreciated the fact that there were stamps included too. 🙂
