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.
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??
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.
This is a really fun subscription for anyone who loves vinyl, postcards, or music in general! Some record players are finicky about playing things that don’t fit within the 7”/12” dichotomy, that’s my only warning! It’s fun learning new artists and having cool novelty copies of their songs!
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 got this for a friend and she loves it.
After having a problem with my initial shipment, VINYL POST has demonstrated to have some of the best customer service, far surpassing those of other subscription services (coughlootfreightcough). 11 stars.
Love this subscription! Fun to see new curated music every month and notes from the artists are a nice touch. Worth it.
This is a very cool box with a good selection, great way to find new music. Christmas shipping was crazy slow but that's on the post office, Josh did his very best to make things right for us. Thank you for great customer service! My one complaint is our new Victrola won't play the entire record. The record is so small the arm bounces back midway through the song. But we heard enough to know we liked it and will look up the artist.
My recipient absolutely loves this box...
Glad I found it!!
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 ordered 6 months of cards on December 4th, the first card was supposed to have been delivered by Christmas. It still has not shown up and I have contacted the seller several times.
This shipment was mailed out in time according to USPS's holiday shipping schedule. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and unprecedented volume increases in holiday shipments for USPS, it arrived late. Jennifer did confirm that it finally arrived and I issued a full refund as well. I responded to each of Jennifer's emails within 24 hours. She mentioned she planned to update the review since confirming the package arrived. This one was simply out of our control due to USPS shipping delays but I've done everything I can to remedy the situation including a full refund.
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.
