A Handmade & Instagrammable Happy Birthday To You! (aka Punkpost App Makes Beautiful Greeting Cards *First One Free*)
My instagram feed is a combination of coffee roasters, 80s pro wrestling, @IronMaidenand #BulletJournals/Doodlers/StudyNotes. That last one might need explaining if you’re unfamiliar with the culture. Buzzfeed’s helpful WTF is a Bullet Journal provides a bit of an overview, but really you can simply look at this image and get a pretty good sense.
I just love the personality dripping from structured handwriting, sketches, doodles and the like (note, there are also a bunch of fun Instagram doodle accounts — you can see who I follow if interested). So, not surprisingly, when a friend introduced me to Punkpost, it kinda blew my mind.Punkpost lets you send handwritten cards — birthday, get well, congrats, anything! — drawn by artists and mailed directly to whomever you want. These unique creations are a flat $6 (plus any add-ons like glitter confetti or prints of photos you’ve uploaded) which isn’t much more than the drab stock cards lining your pharmacy aisles. Punkpost’s founders are a wife and husband team here in San Francisco and they’ve truly thrown their whole selves into this business.
