Cratejoy’s Fandom Celebration: Part 2 -Nerdy Post

 In General Geekiness

Welcome back to part 2 as Cratejoy and I celebrate all things fandom this summer! In part 1 we oogled over Harry Potty goodies in the Accio box. Today we travel through the looking glass and enjoy Alice in Wonderland with the Nerdy Post monthly subscription box.

Ready to follow the white rabbit?!

Nerdy Post Monthly Subscription Box

Cratejoy describes this box as:

Each month features a different fandom from books, TV & movies! If you love it, chances are we do, too! Your Nerdy Post will be filled with 5-7 exclusive items featuring original, hand-lettered and illustrated quotes, symbols, images, etc. Nerdy Tees features the same art on a super soft T-Shirt each month.

  • 8.5 X 11 High Quality Print
  • Double Sided Bookmark
  • Auto Grade Sticker
  • Sendable Color-In Postcard
  • Other goodies including notebooks, sticky notes, lapel pins, buttons, magnets, koozies, etc.

Other reviews have rated the box an overall 4.5/5. Nerdy Post costs $13.95 a month.

Box Contents

The Nerdy Post subscription arrived in a pretty little grey box. The contents were wrapped up very well  inside to prevent any damage in transit.

Within the box I found 8 items and a postcard detailing the items with a gorgeous illustrated front-side. Each month the box features a new fandom theme. This month’s theme was Alice in Wonderland. Next month’s theme is ‘Back to Hogwarts.’ Each month you have the option of skipping in case you don’t care for the theme.

1. As stated in the box’s description, it includes hand-lettered artwork and quotes. The pair of posters that arrived in this month’s box were gorgeous examples of the type of content you will receive monthly. Both posters had rich, vibrant colors and lovely designs; both very suitable for Alice.

2. I also discovered 2 different bookmarks within this month’s box. The first bookmark had Mad Hatter tea time artwork on one side and the quote, “Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end then stop,” on the other. *How appropriate for a bookmark, eh?!*

The second bookmark was a magnetic Cheshire cat. How cute!

3. Since Alice’s adventure began by traveling through the looking glass, a small mirror was also included. This mirror is the perfect travel size and I’ve actually been meaning to pick one up, so this item is perfect.

4. Every Nerdy Post box includes a postcard, ready to be colored in. I’m already trying to decide who I want to send it too 🙂

6. A notepad was also included this month. It featured another apt quote, “Always speak the truth. Think before you speak. And write id down afterwards.” I don’t know about you, but I can always use another notepad. They’re prefect for grocery lists, etc.

7. Last is my second favorite item, after the mirror. It’s the “Curiouser & Curiouser” flamingo sticker. I really love the parts of Alice in Wonderland that this sticker reminds me of; plus the flamingo used to be one of my favorite animals!

What I love most about this box is that it’s full of hand drawn and illustrated items. Again, we get to support nerdy artists out there with this box! It’s also clear to see that the items are curated with care for beautiful and unique designs. This box is more than worth its monthly cost in my opinion.

The only downside to the box is its rotating theme. While I’m familiar with Alice in Wonderland, I wouldn’t consider it one of my fandoms. But, like I said above, you can skip any month’s theme in your subscription should you wish.

    I’m not such a fan of subscription boxes (they usually have stuff I don’t really ‘need’ and I can’t afford them), but this would be one I’d actually consider! It’s really affordable and I really love illustrations and art! Does it say anywhere who drew them so you can look for more online if you like something a lot?

      I agree -some boxes get expensive for just knickknacks that sit on the shelf. This box though, is very affordable I feel. Great question! Yes, the illustrated card that talked about the items within the box details the artists for each piece so that you can look them up for more great finds.

        That’s awesome! So even if you’re like me and don’t necessarily want to ‘get stuff’, this box could be something to use to explore new artists. Big fan of that. I’ll keep this one in mind!

    I would love the idea of more boxes that were featuring artists! As an artist myself this is such a cool way to get your work around and to create new work in fun fandoms.

    Also, we don’t get box bundles much in Germany, do you know of any creative bundles available in Europe? I’ve been looking for awhile but can’t find anything. I would order from the US but shipping is super expensive.

      Artist inspired boxes are wonderful!
      Hmmm…I can’t think of any off the top of my head but let me do a little poking around for you!
