"I never realised I needed it, but I'm so glad I found it."
"I save the art postcards up and send them as birthday cards for my friends and work mates, and I've found an fab piece of local original art for my dining room."
"I was surprised (in a very good way!) by the quality of the postcards, the packaging and the incredible artwork. I've set up a little wooden box on my coffee table for the postcards as a Sheffield art gallery for friends and family once lockdown is over."
"An absolute treat to receive, opening the wax seal and discovering new Sheffield art. It'll be the best £4.50 you'll spend this month"
Many wonderful up-and-coming artists have been showcased in The Art Post in recent months - from Red Bull illustrator Grifff, to legendary Sheffield artist Dave Akehurst. Check out all of the artwork featured on the postcards here.
These subscribers have got super creative with their Art Post deliveries..
"I have found that writing notes of gratitude on my Art Post postcards has really helped me to feel more present and grateful."
"Last month I started gallery wall for the Sheffield art postcards in my office, you can get some great frames online for postcard sized prints. It's coming along so well!"
"I've been collecting stamps all my life, so the Art Post is the next step for my collections. It's a great hobby to have. I have already sent two as birthday cards too!"
There is something magical about a handwritten note. Something so distinctly therapeutic and raw that as a society are starting to crave again.
Digital-free hours and even days are being welcomed across the country more and more, and we fully embrace this movement. We want to feel the texture of a page, and take a moment to write meaningful communication off-screen to a loved one. We are craving the nostalgia of the past - of record players, stamps that change with the seasons and the feel of flowing ink as we write a letter.
The Art Post postcard subscription brings that feeling, along with incredible Sheffield art to your home, every month, and we know you'll just love it.
