Q: I don't understand this. I thought that the postcard was going to be the record. I got 3 pieces a postcard, the record, and a picture. how am I supposed to mail this to my daughter as a postcard?Asked by Mary D., June 2020

The postcards are more of a novelty to have a personal handwritten message from the artist that is being featured that month. I believe if you want your daughter to receive these you'll need to change the address on Cratejoy.

by Joshua B., June 2020

I don't have an answer for this question, but I was confused too. Maybe you have to mail the record itself? What looks like an actual postcard isn't good for mailing because the writing it so big. Maybe the postcard isn't actually meant to be mailed to someone??

by K L., June 2020

in the photo it looks like the postcard and the record are one item. you put the postcard on the record player. This is not the case. I understand that I'm going to have to mail it to her but how do I do that with 3 pieces? Can't be mailed as a postcard.

Crosley Turntables are known to have this issue where they auto-return too early. Luckily, there's a really quick and easy fix. Here's a video explaining it. Copy and paste this youtube code in your browser: "W4fU7yf6FFg" or google "Crosley auto return fix". Sorry, it wouldn't let me post the URL.

These have been wonderful. I don't have a record player myself but I've been sending them to friends during covid as a nice way to brighten their day and they've loved it. Very cute and creative.

I like the idea, but unfortunately my player doesn't allow for the whole song to play. And the postcards are kind of thin, so the sound quality isn't the best. I also haven't really cared for the songs so far. It's a cool concept, but I'm a little underwhelmed.

I have really enjoyed getting my postcards and records of new artists. I love learning about new artists and their music. So far all of my postcards and records I have received have been in good shape. I really appreciate that I receive a digital version of the music for that month too. I find this subscription to be very fun and unique I really enjoy receiving this every month. Thanks and keep up the great work.

I got these postcards to send to my daughter in college. I sent the first one I filled in the address section put everything in the clear slave taped shut and added appropriate postage. it's been two weeks since I mailed it and she never received it. Not sure if that was due to the packaging. when I ordered these I thought that the postcard was going to be the record and then I was just going to be able to put that in the mail to her. I'm still not sure how to get it to my recipient.

If all of their playable vinyl postcards are like this first one, this is the best crate ever. New bands who appreciate any support they get. Hand written notes on the back. I plan to go back and get the vinyl I missed. You also get a download of the song if that's your thing. Can't miss, especially at this price.

This was such a fun gift and great idea but the packaging isn’t great which means the majority of the postcards arrive too bent to actually play. Would consider trying again if packaging was improved.

Ruhala's music is at once precise and playful, skipping breezily between decades and their attendant musical aesthetics while executing them with care and sincerity.
