What is your story?
While working on the editorial team at Brit + Co, I launched a brand new venture called Punkpost. Within a matter of months, that side hustle became the main act — I quit my job, took a big risk on myself, and took my passion project to the next level. Now, a couple years later, Punkpost is growing and thriving community of hundreds of artists. In short, Punkpost makes it easy to create beautifully handwritten cards, mailed by artists for you. Go to punkpost.com or to the Punkpost app, pick your card, type your message, and enter your recipient’s mailing address. From there, one of our handwriting artists will turn your message into a one-of-a-kind work of art and have it in the mail within 24 hours. You can even add photo prints or confetti to it.
What message does Punkpost like to promote?
Punkpost promotes human personality and authenticity. It’s a hub for deep connections and happy moments, all powered by a community of artists. Communication at its best is human. With its imperfections and all. Be it a card to your daughter, a card to your boss, or a card to your good friend, these moments are important. No matter how thoughtful, a text or email just don’t really deliver that feeling of real delight. There really is nothing that can replace the power of a handwritten card, but sometimes we don’t have the time to put all the steps together to get that card in the mail. So in the end, Punkpost is a way for you to make good on your good intentions and connect more deeply with the people in your life who are important to you — whether that’s personally or professionally.
