The Paperdashery is an online store, selling gorgeous stationery, cards, washi tape, gift wrap, and more, for you to turn mail into Happy Mail! It was founded my a blogger friend of mine – Gude from Hodge Podge Craft. She is Paperdasher-in-Chief, and the other Paperdashers are Katie from Hurrah for Gin, and Katie Leamon.
So what exactly is happy mail?
Quite simply, it’s anything you get in the post that makes you happy (certainly not bills, and junk!). The Paperdashery’s monthly Happy Mail box is the perfect subscription box for people who love to get mail!
The subscription box costs £9.99 in the UK, £12.99 in Europe, and for the rest of the world, £14.99.
- posted on the 1st of every month
- 3x greeting cards / postcards
- 1x twine, stickers, wrap, washi tape or other stationery item
- different contents each month
- free UK postage
- beautifully packaged
- always worth more in total than £9.99 RRP
The Paperdashery has some great tips for creating and sending happy mail, and as I mentioned at the top of this post, there is also a shop where you can buy all of your pretty stationery things.
Gude very kindly sent me July’s Happy Mail box, which I unbox and tell you about in the video below (or over on my YouTube channel)
The Paperdashery also run a project called #MamaMail, AKA postpartum post (happymail for new mamas)!
The #MamaMail project encourages mums to send some happy mail (a letter, postcard, even a little gift) to a new mum who might be in need of support and encouragement during the postpartum weeks. The aim of the project is to send love, support and happiness to a new mama – a simple card and heartfelt message is more than enough. Of course if you can afford and would like to send more, you are welcome to, but the idea is simply to send an uplifting paper hug through the mail. – The Paperdashery
If you love pretty stationery, love sending and receiving mail, then please do check out The Paperdashery and Happy Mail! I was sent this Happy Mail box to review on my blog, but I will be subscribing, and starting to send out some happy mail of my own to friends. It’s such a joy to receive an old fashioned letter in the post, especially in this digital age. I may even set up a PO Box, if you’d like to exchange happy mail with me!
