Happy Mail Stickers & Upcoming Printables

These new Happy Mail stickers mark the first of my 100 Day Project characters to appear on a real product! I’m sure there will be many more, but I’m trying to save them up for a surprise box first. If you love sending letters, this happy postbox will make any package even cuter.

I originally ordered these with plans to stick one on every shop order but they’re such amazing quality (and can last 3-5 years outside!) that it felt like a waste – and might make the boxes non-recyclable unless you removed it? Recycling is confusing. Instead, I’ve put them in the shop in packs of 2, 5 or 10 stickers.

I still plan to make lower quality versions to stick on packages soon, especially since I just bought a cheap inkjet printer. I’ve really missed designing printables, but it’s kind of difficult when you only have a black and white printer.

I’m already planning lots of fun rewards for my Trouble Club on Patreon so have a think about joining. For $5 you’ll get a batch of printables every month along with access to all my previous paid printables (and lots more rewards too). I’ll then add them to my shop the following month. Let me know if you have any requests too.

I also just renewed my PO Box so why not join my Surprise Mail Swap? It’s free – just send me something in the mail and you’ll get some happy mail in return.
