FREE Holiday Gift Destination Note Set November 13 2014, 0 Comments

If you are an Instagram or Facebook follower, you may have seen some photos of these cards that I've have been busy working on. I love to travel and was inspired to create some little notecards that feature iconic illustrations of things that make each city so unique. I've created cards for Tokyo, Paris and London, which other cities would you like to see for possible future cards?

As a holiday gift from Pennie Post to you I am giving away a free set of 6 (2 of each design) destination cards and envelopes. These gift sets will be FREE with a Pennie Post purchase of $60 or more through December 15th. If you purchase a gift subscription the free gift will automatically go to the gift subscription recipient unless otherwise noted in your Gift Note box during checkout. If you are already a subscriber and wish to receive this card gift set you can purchase a new subscription and it can be added to your current subscription length, just leave a note in the Gift Note box at checkout.

To redeem the free gift set use code: PPGIFT14 at checkout. It will come up as a $.01 discount, and this is your verification that your free gift has been redeemed.

November is a month of thanks. Included in each Pennie Post subscription this month is a “Thankful” card. Fill it out with anything you are thankful for, snap a photo of either the card, or whatever it is you are thankful for and post it to our Facebook page or on Instagram with @penniepost and #penniepost for a chance to win a 12 month subscription! You can also download a printable file to print out more for your friends and family so they can participate as well. You may enter as many unique "thankfuls" as you like for a better chance to win. The contest is open to subscribers and non-subscribers. Ends on November 30th.

Thankful cards also make a great Thanksgiving day activity. Have your guests each fill out cards and read them out loud, or try to figure out who wrote what.

Why Stationery Makes a Great Gift | Stationery Subscription Service October 16 2014, 0 Comments

It can be really hard to decide what to give someone as a gift, no matter what the occasion is. A lot of the decision on the actual gift is going to depend on who the person is and what they like, and some of that has to do with age. Young people love technology and related items, while older people would probably frown on such a gift. One of the things they might like is a gift subscription to a stationery subscription service.

Today we’re going to talk about who might like stationery as a gift.

People Who Like Sending Handwritten Notes

Stationary, especially personalized stationery is a great tool that a lot of people still use, despite the prevalence of email and Facebook. If you know a person who likes to send hand written notes, a subscription to a stationery service will be a great gift that they will be able to use over and over again.

Great gifts are often forgotten, but a subscription service like this will remind them often about how much you care.

People Who Like Sending Cards

Another group of people who may enjoy the gift of a stationery subscription service would be people who enjoy sending out cards for every occasion. When people think of stationery, they most often think of a pad of paper with some designs and some personalization on it; but cards are also considered stationery.

While e-cards and simple e-mail have over taken the art of sending out cards, there are still a lot of people out there that enjoy sending cards for every occasion including birthdays, graduations, and weddings. If you know such a person (and almost everyone does), a gift like this might be just what the doctor ordered.

People Who Enjoy Handwriting

Some people just don’t like technology, and prefer to put things down on paper. For those people stationery is a way of life. They might spend hundreds of dollars a year on personalized stationery. By gifting them a subscription to a stationary subscription service, you will be doing a great favor for them, on that they will remember for a long time.

Bottom Line

People who like to send mail the old fashioned way are probably people who would like a stationery subscription. This is a great gift for the people in your life who enjoy to do things in a certain way. While technology has made handwriting much less important, but it is still something a lot of people enjoy doing. For those people, a stationery subscription service would be a great gift.
