The Holstee Subscription - A Mindful Letterpress Art Giveaway

Congratulations to msmithk, giveaway winner!

If you enjoy retrieving a thoughtful present from your mailbox from time to time, this is the post for you! The folks at Holstee will be sending six months of their popular Holstee Subscription to one lucky commenter on this post as a way of introducing the service to All Things Paper readers. I really like the concept... subscribers receive an archival 5 x 7 inch letterpress art card each month that is display-worthy. The design includes an inspiring caption on the back.

In addition, an action list of ways to live fully and mindfully will arrive along with a curated collection of articles, books and videos to aid your exploration of the monthly theme.

Holstee Letterpress Monthly Subscription Card Example

Holstee encourages the sharing of each month's artwork by mailing it at the end of the month to a person in your life who will appreciate the theme and/or is simply in need of encouragement. The included origami-inspired envelope makes it even more special to give and receive.


And what is Holstee exactly? It is a Brooklyn-based company that was started in 2009 by two brothers and a friend who work together to produce inspiring letterpress posters and prints. Have a look at this quick video that explains the subscription service...



Six or twelve month gift subscriptions are available; there is a 25% discount on an annual subscription. You may cancel at any time.

Holstee Origami-Inspired Envelope

The Holstee Manifesto that started it all was written by the three founders as their definition of success. Here it is shown in gold foil, available in the Holstee shop where subscribers always receive a 20% discount.

  • Letterpress-printed Art
  • Printed Action List
  • Gifting Envelope
  • Free Subscription Shipping
  • Enrichment Tools
  • Digital Wallpaper Art
  • PDF download of Action List
  • 20% Off Holstee Purchases
 This prize is the equivalent of $72 USD.

The giveaway is for those with a U.S. mailing address, but residents of any country are welcome to enter with the understanding that the prize will be a digital subscription only (valued at 4 USD/month) that includes:

  7. My dad runs the letterpress at the print shop we both work at. I've always loved the texture that is created by letterpress, even though he tells me that a good pressman can make it print nearly as flat as offset. He's only an average pressman, haha.

  11. Every morning, my boyfriend sends texts me inspirational quotes to motivate me into action after quitting my job to pursue a dream didn't work out. I've been stuck for two years, afraid to make any move. Sometimes his quote choices resonates, most times it doesn't. It would be great to receive something that seems divine from a stranger to push me into being brave again...

  12. I'm in Canada where postal service is vulnerable to disruption until a new contract between management and union is ratified. An eVersion would suit me well. I learned calligraphy years ago and it still influences my handwriting.
