I don’t know about you, but I rarely get anything interesting through my mailbox these days. No one sends letters anymore, invites to events come through email – or god forbid, Facebook – I read my newspapers online and I just try to ignore the stack of bills and takeout menus. Occasionally, a package arrives, but the excitement of it is usually marred by the fact that you’ve spent too much money buying stuff online you don’t really need. In short, snailmail has become a real dud.
Enter NOTANOTHERBILL. The concept is brilliantly simple: for a small subscription fee, they send you a surprise every month. It’s a bit like Glossybox, but with less face lotions and more limited edition prints, jewellery or even an “end of the world” kit – you never know what it’ll be next. NOTANOTHERBILL is the brainchild of Ned Corbett-Winder, who at a press day last week showed us a few examples of previous surprise boxes. He works with young and cool designers, artists, brands, to make sure your monthly surprise is different and unique every single time. It also comes with a personal letter from Ned with a bit of background on your surprise and why and where he got it.
For £15 a month you can give yourself or anyone else the gift of surprise. Boom! Post is exciting again.
