It’s our 2 year anniversary tomorrow, July 20th!!
Thank you all sooo much for being a part of PbP, supporting our dream of inspiring #fierceloyalty, sending cards and spreading love! As a token of my appreciation, please keep reading for a special coupon code and BIG celebration giveaway.
I can hardly believe that 2 years ago PbP started with ONLY one monthly subscription and one gift option. And now, we’ve grown to:
- A bi-monthly subscription plus a mini bi-monthly subscription (both suggested by you, our wonderful community – woot! woot!),
- Two gift options: the gift subscription & mini gift subscription
- Themed collections & Single collections
- A quarterly stationery box
- Special membership $5 discount (automatic when you purchase a subscription of any type)
- Refer a friend bonus: give $5, get $5 when your friend makes a purchase
These are BIG accomplishments that I am very proud of (and that I hope are things you love about us), as I’m mostly a one-woman shop. But no woman is an island and I am able to do what I do with support from very hardworking and talented behind the scenes women. In a true Oscar-style acceptance speech fashion, I want to thank my amazing tech and website guru who was with me months before we opened the doors, Sara Chandlee and her awesome team, the very creative and super talented photo stylist Nancy Gaines, who helps me with some of the PbP images and Jodi Graham my content and SEO expert extraordinaire.
ALSO, I definitely wouldn’t be here today without all of YOU – the absolutely supportive, encouraging, loving and awesome PbP community. My utmost gratitude goes out to my curated collection and stationery box subscribers who do me the honor of supporting our shared passion for cards and stationery, to my newsletter subs who allow me into their inboxes almost weekly, to the FB group peeps who #sendcardsspreadlove, to all my social media followers and to anyone who reads this blog, stops by the site, makes a purchase, shares PbP with friends and family, and who email me with suggestions, questions or comments. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey!
To show my gratitude, use the code “PARTYHARDY” for 50% off any 2015 or 2016 single collection purchase (expires at midnight on July 23rd and excludes themed or special collections) and enter the awesome giveaway (details at the end of the post):

- One person will win the September Stationery Box
- One person will win a 3 month mini bi-monthly subscription
July 2017 Curated Collection
Now for the July 2017 Curated Collection reveal! Be sure to join the 2 year anniversary giveaway at the end of the post.
To start off July’s collection, we have this It’s gettin hot in here (so hot) card from Breathless Paper Co. (they were also featured in the March 2017 collection). Perfect for your partner, spouse or super smoldering BFF, biz bestie, or anyone who needs to be told just how awesome they are.
This letterpress card, designed by Emily Rubin for Farewell Paperie (no longer available on their site), is for your fancy friend who is a francophile at heart, who’s got that Je ne sais quoi thing going on and deserves a trés chic thank you. She’s probably also mastered the perfect messy top knot a la J. Crew and red lipstick.
Check out more from Farewell Paperie, who have had the distinction of being picked 2 years in a row for the best of collection this year and last year, along with inclusion in our Life Events themed collection, as well as the September 2015 and September 2016 curated collections.
Part of our mission behind PbP is to honor those we love with what matters most: loyalty, support and unconditional love, what we coined as #fierceloyalty. This card from laLa Grace, whose shop is currently on hiatus (please send Shayla, the owner, good vibes while she recovers from surgery and health issues), is the epitome of #fierceloyalty. Send this card to the person who needs your support most.
Nicole Marie Paperie
Please give Nicole Marie Paperie a warm welcome to the PbP family. She’s a new to us designer and has some of the cutest cards. Her tropical thank you card was featured in our Top 4 Summer Stationery Trends post and fits in with my current obsession of palm leaves everything. Bonus: all of her cards are printed on eco-friendly paper and made in the USA.
This card is for your Broad City fan, or for anyone who needs congrats and the equivalent of a paper high five.
Yellow Grass Greetings
Lastly, this birthday card from Yellow Grass Greetings (they were featured in our 1 year anniversary collection) is for your bestie with a sense of humor, your sarcastic bestie or really, let’s be honest, for your absolute closest friend. So for the SJP / Carrie Bradshaw of your group of friends. For the one who ties everyone together, who’s got your back unconditionally and who knows exactly when she should tell you the truth or when she should just get her knuckle ring and prepare to kick bootay, or grab a pint of ice cream and head over for girl talk and Netflix bingeing.
