the parcel post tribe: june

June 1, 2014

Hi y'all! I hope that you are having a wonderful Sunday! Happy 1st day of June! (How is already June y'all??) I am on my way to New York for the next four months and so appreciative of your prayers!

Today I wanted to write a reminder that sign ups for the June Parcel Post Tribe membership end FRIDAY (the 6th)! **PLEASE note that this is a change of one day earlier than previous months! Due to an overwhelming response for the Parcel Post Tribe  this is now the ordering date for each month!**Order now as space is limited! 

Curious about more information or want to sign up? Read the details below!
I have always adored snail mail. Honestly to me there is nothing better than receiving a beautiful and thoughtful card in the mail that always seems to arrive at "just the right time". But I often hear from friends that they simply don't have the time to make cards, go to a store to purchase them, or have the correct postage for specialty made cards. 

The parcel post tribe will mail to you TWO beautiful and handmade cards each month for a very low cost. In addition to this you will receive a surprise little gift in the mail (for you to keep or giveaway), a 10% coupon for the month to spend at my Etsy shop, The Paper Sonnet, and an e-newsletter that is designed to encourage you to find joy in the simple beauty of life and to be inspired to live a creative life everyday! (The e-newsletter will also feature other artists who are living life beautiful and creatively!) AND guess what?!? The two cards will also come with the correct amount of postage so all you have to do is address them and drop them in the mail! AND a portion of all of the proceeds from each month will go to those who are chronically ill and struggling financially. 

the cost:
For a VERY low cost you will receive all of the items above. Did you know that cards can run as much as $5-$7 each? The Parcel Post Tribe is committed to making snail mail not only beautiful, but affordable. 

Here are the options that you can choose from:

1 Month Membership Purchase: $8.00
6 Month Membership Purchase*: $40.00
1 Year Membership Purchase*: $75.00

* Can be purchased to start on any month

Please choose an option that best suits your needs. Looking to save money? The 6 Month & 1 Year Membership purchases can save you money! To purchase any of the options just simply choose the option you would like from the drop down menu and then click on the "buy now" button.

Parcel Post Tribe Membership

In order to receive the current months order you must purchase the tribe membership by the 7th of the month. If purchased after this you will receive the following months package.
the fine print:
* These cards are unique and will not be sold in The Paper Sonnet
*The beautifully handmade cards are made with vintage and acid-free materials so that these cards can also be used as keepsakes for your friends and family for years to come. 
*As stated above: in order to receive the current months order you must purchase the tribe membership by the 6th of the month. If purchased after this you will receive the following months package.
*Cards will be mailed out on the 10th-15th of the month, but often times will be shipped out much sooner! 
* As you check out using PayPal DON'T forget to put your address in the note section and your email address that you would like the e-newsletter sent to.
*The e-newsletter will be delivered on the 20th of the month via email (starting July 2014)
*Each card comes with the correct postage.
* If a "special" date for a month happens before the 20th of the following month then the month before will feature a card that recognizes that holiday/occasion in the future. (Please see listed below for the breakdown of the monthly listing of cards for the 2013 year.)

  1. Oh I totally agree! I wouldn't pay that either lady!!! This program is not a pen pal program. It is a membership that send you two handmade cards (with postage) each month (with different themes each month - listed in the post :)) and a special handmade item. DEFINITELY not a pen pal program! If you want more information it is all in the post! :)

    Hope you have a great day! :) Rebecca
