Greetings cards. It is just me, or do you end up buying all the cards, for every occasion? I get every single one. I may even be buying my own for our anniversary later this week! I have already bought three Father’s Day cards, for Ryan and both grandparents. I am also default Christmas card purchaser and writer too. I don’t want to be sexist, but I suspect that it’s the girl’s task in most families (do let me know if I’m wrong…)
I actually don’t mind as I love stationery. But it can be hard to keep on top of them all, especially now that the girls are being invited to birthday parties, and we’re getting into wedding season. I’ve recently discovered a rather exciting card subscription service called Proper Post, and I thought you might be ready to have your stationery world rocked too. This is my first pack – could it be any cuter?
Each month has a different theme, this month is Monochrome and Copper, which if you have seen my latest post about my home office, you will know is right up my street. I’m thinking of sticking the copper triangles along the shelf, what do you think?
The Proper Post subscription service is £13.99 a month if you sign up for a year, and there are other options for a one off pack. I signed up for the year as I think it’s great value considering if you bought greetings cards like these on the high street, they’d be up to £3 each, plus the pencils, postcard and tape added to them would be way more than £13.99 if you bought the seven items all together. It’s delivered to your door (I LOVE getting post) and will contain surprises (ditto.) The cards are much more unusual than you’d find on the high street. I do love Paperchase, but can spend ages in there, trying to find a new card that I haven’t sent to someone before.
I love the way the pack has beautiful cards but also the added extras, like the copper washi tape and stickers, and the sweet copper foil pencils. The postcard comes with an envelope so the person you send it to can keep it, and pop it in a frame as it won’t get all mangled in the post.
We are big fans of subscription services in this house – Ryan has one for beer, and now I have one for stationery, could we be more gender stereotyped? Ha ha I don’t care, and I can’t wait for next month’s delivery. What do you think to my goodies? Do you think it would save you time and stress? I’d love to know what you think.
