Some of you might remember that last year, I used the fanart sketch cards I did for the #sixfanarts challenge on Twitter to make "Pen Pal Mailers": mailed envelopes with a random sketch card, stickers, and other fun goodies in the vein of old-school pen paling for a set amount of tips to my ko-fi. And since I did more cards for Drawtober last year, I thought it'd be fun to do it again! Though this time, to make things easier, I'm setting up a ko-fi shop! On Thursday, September 2nd, 2021 at 12pm PST, all 10 Pen Pal Mailers will be listed at my ko-fi shop HERE (it won't work until the set time). For those who weren't around the first time I did them, or just need a refresher, here's how it'll work!
- 1 random sketch card
- 1 Anime Nostalgia Podcast logo sticker
- 1 random manga bookmark
- a hand-written thank you, all mailed in a hand-decorated envelope!
- Everything included in The Basic Mailer
- MORE goodies like stickers, vintage trading cards, memos, and other fun things! The more you decide to tip me, the more things I will stuff into that envelope!
PLEASE NOTE that shipping is FREE worldwide because I'll just be putting a stamp on the envelopes (I have international stamps for those outside the US!). However, this means there is no tracking number on these mailers, and by purchasing, you agree to this. (In the event that your mailer somehow gets lost in transit, I will be happy to create a replacement to send for you.)
In the spirit of pen pal mail being a bit of a surprise, you won't get to chose which character art you receive in the mail. HOWEVER: if there's a character in the bunch you would feel REALLY disappointed to get, please leave me a message and I'll do my best to try not to send you that specific character.
Here's a look at all of the sketch cards that will be available:
