How does Snailbox work?

The Snailbox team sources greeting cards from independent artists and small stationery companies around the world. We then curate the cards into fun collections that are different every month, then ship them right to your doorstep.

What exactly will I get in my box?

Each month you will receive 4 assorted greeting cards, 4 matching envelopes, 4 envelope seals (aka stickers), and 4 USPS Forever stamps. We also include an Artist Profile card, and wrap everything up with a pretty paper band or string that you can (and should!) reuse.

Why should I subscribe?

You have great taste, but lack time and resources. Maybe you don’t have great taste and you’re looking for some help in the style department. Maybe you love sending handwritten notes, and can never have enough on hand.

Let us do the heavy lifting; we’ll stock you with stylish greeting cards, stamps and seals for a fraction of the cost and effort! Browse our past boxes to see what we’ve mailed our subscribers.

Why do you make a great gift?

We all know someone bursting with creativity. Let them know you’ve noticed how original and thoughtful they are! Gifting 3, 6 or 12 months of greeting cards will keep them surprised, delighted, and thinking of you every month.

Where is the service available?

Snailbox is currently available in the United States only. As we grow, we may expand our boundaries to include other countries.
