Guys, I’m going to cut right to the chase! I’m excited. I was recently told about the Promo Box from Vistaprint by our baker friends over at Petite Sweets N Treats. I then promptly forgot about it. I did sign up eventually, and my first box was 5 bucks! All future ones will top out at about 25 dollars a month- a little heftier than most subscriptions I try by about 3 times.
But, guys, you can’t beat the feeling of getting merch with your own logo on it. There’s something that feels so good about that. Without further ado, let’s get to the box!
For my first Promo Box, I’m impressed! Check out that handwritten note! It really made it feel personal, almost like a Christmas gift from a friend.
The items included in this box were some fairly sizable note cards with envelopes included, that I at first mislabeled as postcards. I’m not sure what to do with this, maybe wedding invitations?
I also got a sheet of small stickers that I plan to use randomly on stationary- or on my planning notebook. I love these stickers, guys.
The first thing that really had me so incredibly happy was the pen. I love having this pen clipped on my bag. It gives me a little bit of pride when I take it out and sign receipts at coffee shops or where ever I happen to be.
The ink is similar to a gel pen, with great flow and nice jet ink. It doesn’t bleed through my notebook paper and feels fairly sturdy. This pen can keep up with my adventures and seems to have a nice capacity as far as ink goes.
You can see in that picture that I also got the business cards that I had professionally designed by the good folks over there at Vista Print. I know they didn’t come in the box, but I saw no point in creating a post for my business cards alone. Since they arrived on the same day, it made sense to include them here. I love them. They’re adorable, and I love the use of the logo on the side. They’re kind of muted in color, and I feel like they compliment the brightness of the site itself.
I wanted to wait a moment to show you guys this amazing last item. This shirt branded with our official redesigned logo! (feat. my new haircut from Miss Chasity at Ulta!) This shirt is so comfortable, and I’m loving the subtle coloration of the logo and how it’s not overpowering on the white. The only thing I would change about this, is maybe make the neckline a little lower.
I don’t generally go for shirts that are plain T-necks, just due to not liking the feel of something around my neck like that. I did wear this outfit to the Blowout Makeup Sale, because I just couldn’t wait to rep the blog and pass out the new business cards! So, in the end, the neck on this shirt didn’t bother me too much.
The Promo Box was 100% worth it, especially since it was $5. I don’t have anything negative to say in regards to this box. All of the pieces worked so well together and the shirt was incredibly comfortable. Really, it was deceptively soft for the style of shirt.
I was expecting a cheaply made, scratchy T-shirt when I saw it, but what I got was premium feeling soft knit shirt. This can pass as pajamas! I can’t wait to use those stickers everywhere!
Thank you so much, Jack!
