What is Coucou Postale?

Coucou Postale is a subscription art and storytelling postcard service designed to send a little joy & beauty through the mail.

Coucou Postale was born from an idea I had as a kid to connect to the elderly through art. With a growing number of loved ones home-bound or living alone — including my grandfather — I wanted to create a way to keep him connected to the world and send love.

But it’s also for the kid who has everything or anyone who loves getting mail, stories and art! My 5-year-old niece is a fan. Each gorgeously printed postcard includes a unique story for your loved one to connect with and be inspired. Amazing, right?


How it works

Every month for a year, your loved one will receive a beautiful postcard designed by me with a special message on the back. It will also include a secret link to access a story online about the postcard they received. Choose from:

Contessa Stories and illustrations through the eyes of a little girl who loves adventures, tea time, bug collecting, and hot air balloons.

BloomsConnect with the ordinary blooms outside your front door and learn their epic histories, uses, and what makes them special.


Who would love Coucou Postale?

Elderly relatives or friends, kids, and deltiologists — or even grown-ups who love art and the art of story telling!

A Mere $39 To Send Love All Year Long

That’s right.

Or, if you like to break things down, that’s just $3.25 a month*. Come on, I know you spend more on a pumpkin spice latte. ;-)

I’m intentional about a price that allows for as many people as possible to benefit from a life filled with more beauty, more stories, and more connection. These are all things I believe in, and I bet you do, too!

*Postales sent to non-domestic U.S addresses are $49 per subscription!
