Hello, I'm Carolynn Yoe. I'm an illustrator based in Singapore. My works portray a naive and dreamy child-like drawing that brings my cute creations to life. Besides drawing, I also love to do snail mail and make my own stationery and snail mail supplies. I'm always interested in creating more things and it makes me happy when someone is happy when they see my illustration. I want to spread the fun and a bit of some happiness to the world through a monthly subscription service called #CYBOX.
#CYBOX will be a chance for me to share my love for illustration with you through a monthly subscription service that will bring you a package of happiness filled with exclusively designed stationery and snail mail supplies. It will be delivered straight onto your doormat every month (starting from MEDIUM options). It will fit most letterbox so #CYBOX will be delivered even if you are out.
Fellow stationery or snail mail addicts who are hungry for exclusively designed stationery, from greeting cards, postcards, notebooks, planners, gift tags, stickers, etc. etc. It's aimed at creative planners, journal keepers, crafty memory keeping folks, handmade enthusiasts, snail mail lovers or people who fancy illustration and design and love to receive fresh supplies of stationery and mailable gifts that they can send to their penpal every month. #CYBOX is also suitable for the young ones.
#CYBOX will be a lovely surprise package of stationery, snail mail supplies, and mailable gifts that I will send to you monthly. It will have a new theme for each month so subscribers won't receive the same items again and again. If you are a #CYBOX subscriber, you will get to know the theme of each month package through an email.
I know things have been hard for everyone nowadays and no matter how big or small of a supporter you are, the fact that you've supported anything at all is incredibly appreciated! You have my gratitude!
To give you an idea of what you will get as #CYBOX subscribers:
- A monthly printable stationery set. (SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE)
- A monthly surprise box! Be ready to get exclusively designed stationery and snail mail supplies or gifts with a different theme each month. Options:
- MEDIUM: 3 to 4 surprise items + 2 (updated on 8 Dec)
- LARGE: 6 to 7 surprise items + 2 (updated on 8 Dec)
ONLY FOR KICKSTARTER BACKERS: 10 first backers who pledge for 6x LARGE will get my exclusively designed 2017 calendar.
The picture above shows the contents of the very first #CYBOX with the theme "Noisy Nutcracker". I already prepared everything to give you a clear idea of what you will receive if you subscribe to #CYBOX. However, the contents for the rest of the months will remain as a surprise.
HINT: I would like to include various items like postcard, mini coloring page, sticker sheet, greeting card and envelope, notebook, coaster, badge pin, craft items or other small gifts. Most of the items are featuring my illustration but sometimes I will also add the maximum of 1 (one) complimentary item that I find suitable for each theme e.g., pen, pencil, paper clip, washi tape, etc.
The best part is that it will be a surprise and you will not know exactly what I am sending you until you open it up - it feels just like receiving a little present for yourself every month! However, I will reveal the contents of each box only after the month is over and sell the leftover of the items (if any) in my Etsy shop. You will definitely get a much cheaper price by subscribing #CYBOX than buy it individually. Plus, you get them first.
This is the plan of how #CYBOX will work:
- Every first week of the month: announcing the new #CYBOX theme.
- Every 2nd week of the month: #CYBOXs are sent out to you in the post and digital files are ready to be downloaded.
- Every last week of the month: revealing what's inside the #CYBOX and sell the leftover items (if any) in my Etsy shop.
- Subscription will be auto renewed until you decide to cancel your subscription.
If this campaign meets its goal, the very first #CYBOX will start on January 2017.
Yes. I am based in Singapore and will be happy to ship #CYBOX internationally. I offer FREE SHIPPING for Singapore and S$5 postage for anywhere else. Estimated delivery time vary from 4 to 12 business days.
Your support will help me to get started with the #CYBOX subscription service and of course, the very first #CYBOX itself. It will not only support me physically, but it will also help me mentally by giving me a massive encouragement about what I do and to assure me that there's somebody out there who believe in me and want me to keep doing what I love.
If you have any questions, you can send me an email or see me around on social media.

Risks and challenges
As a freelance illustrator and snail mail enthusiast, I have previously designed my own stationery and proudly sent them to my penpals. #CYBOX will be my first time delivering my creations to a wider audience and I would appreciate your understanding in case there are any unforeseen complications. However, through my experience of having my creations delivered safely around the world before, I am confident that you can enjoy #CYBOX without any issue as well.
Thank you for considering backing this project!
