Pennie Post Stationary Subscription

February 11, 2015 Pennie Post 3

I love receiving mail, cards, letters, notes, anything.  I also love sending cards, letters and notes.  I’m always buying notecards and stationary and last fall a friend of mine told me about Pennie Post.

Pennie Post

 

You can subscribe for terms of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.  Prices start at $11.00 a month and discounts are given if you sign up for 6 or more months.  I looked at the website, their details and photos were sparse yet attractive and I signed up for 6 months.  My first mailing was in October 2014 and I received three cards.

November was two cards, three holiday treats gift tags, and a small I am thankful card. There was a downloadable printable to have more thankful cards and cards could be posted on FB to enter to win Pennie Post for a year.

December was three cards and some stick-able gift labels. No Photo I used all the cards.

January was three cards.

February was three cards and a Love coupon.

The quality of the cards is very nice, heavy card stock, unique printing, some  done on thin wood, some with metallic inks.  I believe all the insides were blank.  The cards are small, measuring no larger than 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  Each month you can order more of the cards offered.

I’ve been really torn, because while  I’ve liked what I’ve been sent, I don’t think there is a great value in the subscription service.  I calculated the value of February’s cards to be $12.50 and I paid $10.  Shipping is free and the cards arrive in an envelope.  I guess I just expect a little more bang for my putting out my $60 up front.  I don’t think I’ll be renewing my subscription, and I may try to look for something else similar.

If you like receiving new cards/stationary in the mail to use for all occasions, then Pennie Post may be something You’d like to try.  If you order before 2/15 you will still receive the February cards, if you wait another week you’ll begin in March, and who knows what fun that will bring.

So how about you?  Do you still enjoy mailing cards and letters?

I’m receiving no compensation for this post, I just wanted to share something I tried and enjoyed.

    Oh, darn. This sounded promising. I do love stationary, probably more than I should in this day of electronic communication. Thanks for the honest review, and better luck next time!

    Oh I am a girl that cannot get enough stationary. Keep exploring for us. Sadly even though I love to send and receive cards I just am not disciplined myself to always remember to do so. But thank goodness that does not stop me from buying cards and other stationary items for the time that I do. Thanks for being our paper Sherlock.
