August PostBox by Postmark'd Studio Review and Coupon

The PostBox by Postmark'd Studio is a new stationery subscription and I'm totally charmed by their boxes! August's box is Farmers Market themed and has so many cute items.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

PostBox costs $25 per month with $5.95 shipping for four handcrafted artisinal cards, one postcard, stamps, and an "artsy doodad," which may be a pen, pencil, or other knickknack. Each box is curated around a theme.

There are discounts for longer subscription lengths (these prices include the $5.95 shipping):
  • Three months at $85.35 prepay
  • Six months at $163.20 prepay
  • 12 months at $240 prepay
There is also a reward for 12 month subscribers, you'll receive free shipping and a free 13th box. The 13th box ships upon payment of the 12 month subscription.

The July box shipped in a cardboard mailer, but this month's box was packaged in an actual box. The packaging is beautiful and simple, as you can see from the photos above.

All of the items are neatly packaged with string, which adds to the handmade charm of the box. The Farmer's Market theme is apparent right away!

Postmark'd Studio took the "farm to table" concept and adapted it to "letters to mailboxes" for this box! I think it's such a cute idea and the cards and postcards are equally adorable. I love how bright and colorful everything is.

  • Everyday I'm Brusselin' by Meeschmosh - Artist Michelle LaRocca is a graphic designer based in Long Island, NY whose inspiration comes from random thoughts and everyday life. I love the wordplay on this card!
  • I'm All Ears by Farmwood Press - Farmwood Press is located in Atlanta, GA and is run by husband and wife duo Chris and Katie Torres. Their presses are an extension of them and their family and even have names! The whimsical corn design on this card is too cute.
  • A Bushel & A Peck and A Hug Around the Neck by 1canoe2 - Fellow musical theater fans will recognize the Guys and Dolls reference here. 1canoe2 is located in Fulton, MO and is n illustration and letterpress studio that roots their work in life's natural beauty and a pursuit of curiosity.
  • You Are One in a Melon by Alexis Mattox Designs - Husband and wife team Paul and Alexis from Springfield, UT created their company after meeting their first day in college. Their works showcase their passion for design, laser cutting, and paper.
  • Tomato and Carrot Seed Packet Postcards by Found Image Press - Found Image Press from San Diego, CA carries over 35,000 images derived from vintage postcards, photographs, and illustrations dating from 1890 to 1945. The seed packets pictured in these postcards are from the Card Seed Co. from Fredonia, NY and were originally printed in my hometown of Rochester, NY by Genesee Valley Litho Co! I love the hometown connection here.
Bottom Line: I'm again impressed by the high quality, beautiful cards and postcards in the PostBox from Postmark'd Studio! Everything matches perfectly with the theme, which is a great one for August. I especially love the Found Image Press postcards.
