Subscription Box Unboxing
Subscription Box Review
Everything that came in my January Postbox – this box had a, “Go Bananas” theme and it’s clear where they were going with this! Also cameo by Pilgrim who couldn’t stay away from that ribbon!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box inserts.
First up is our box insert that lists each of the items that came in this box.
The reverse always includes a way to take your box a little further. This month there was a Mad Lib included! How cute!
Every box from Postbox comes with vintage postage.
Every box also includes a card that shows you how to group them to have the appropriate postage.
Our artsy doodad that was included with this box is a banana yellow Rollerball Pen. This is cool and I’ll definitely be hiding it from my kids! These bright colored pens always seem to disappear when they are around.
I also received this oversized postcard with this fun banana graphic on it.
This postcard is a Postbox subscription box exclusive.
Next and our first “card” for the month is this rectangular card from Ashley Mary Designs. The colors are fun and kind of cheeky.
Ashley Mary is a Minnesota based abstract artist.
Barrow Of Bananas Card
Next is the perfect card to tell someone how much you appreciate(d) their help! The graphic is cute and the color scheme gives it a bit of vintage whimsy!
HelloLucky is a San Francisco based letterpress and has been around since 2003!
Go Bananas Card
Next up is probably my favorite card that was included in this collection. A nod to Josephine Baker this card let’s the recipient know you want them to live it up for their special day!
Appalachia Press is a Roanoke, VA based letterpress.
Hello There (Banana Phone) Card
A bonus card that was included in this month’s box is what I’d like to refer to as the “Banana Phone” card. This is the perfect way to just drop a line and catch up with one of your pen pals, plus it gets the song stuck in their head which is worth extra bonus points!
Pop Glory is a Silver Lake, Los Angeles based brand!
Love You Bunches Card
The final card in our box is one that gives the recipient all those good feels by telling them just how much they are loved. The print on this card is colorful and fun!
Tiny and Snail is a sister run operation. They formed this company in 2017 after a tragic accident.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my box from Postmark’d Studio for the month
Quality: I think the love that is put into each of these cards speaks for itself. Each one is handmade and excellent!
Curation: What a cute mix! Bananas are fun and the color and shape and overall silliness of them seems to bring people cheer and that is something that I can get behind.
Great Banana Month
This month’s theme was so much fun! All these banana themed cards will definitely be bringing smiles to the faces of the recipients.
