Jetoy cat postcard

Jetoy cat postcard

I'm quite the fan of the Korean stationery company Jetoy, though I very rarely find their products available in the USA (even online). A couple of etsy sellers offer their items occasionally, but they tend to be quite expensive. So I often ooh and ahh over the wonderful Jetoy cats, not only because they are so beautiful and colorful, but also because I find them so difficult to obtain. I've found Jetoy cat sticky notes and keychains and the like on places like eBay and etsy, but I find the lettersets and postcards much more rare. (If anyone has an U.S. source for online ordering of these babies, LET ME KNOW!)

But a pen pal got her hands on them, and knew I'd love them, so she sent me one...

...inside a beautiful glassine envelope so I could see it the design from the outside!

I did squeal when I opened this one.

  1. If I had received a card like this, I might have deafened poor Greg with squeals. He brings me my post office box mail when he picks me up at work. The first 20 minutes of the ride home is given to exclamations of delight at the wonders in the mail stash.

    P.S. My word verification was "matedism," and while I know these words are made-up, this one intrigues me ... the study of those who have mated?

  4. You might try going here: http://jetoy.co.kr/ This is their official site and it says (at the top, in scrolling English) that if you are a foreigner, you can order from a site called http://www.gmarket.co.kr. Of course, the gmarket website is down right now, but hopefully it'll come back soon.

    In the meantime, I see that Jetoy has new t-shirts, too! It's fun looking at all of the adorable cat stuff on their site, even if it might not be possible to buy any of it.

    Even if you have to pay for shipping from Korea, the products are much cheaper there. This postcard set, for example, sells for w15,800 or $12 for 30 postcards at the current (awful!) exchange rate.

  8. Thanks for the tip, anonymous. For anyone who is looking for this seller on eBay, the username is actually lonedaisy77. I've never purchased from that person before, but interestingly, they let you choose which postcard you want from a pack, which is kind of cool.

  9. I just ordered a set of 40 Jetoy postcards from an ebay seller in Hong Kong. They arrived fast and look nice! Shipping was even free. The seller's name is voguelala and they have more to offer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/120754012181?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

  10. Deltiolog - Jetoy cat postcards from China show up on eBay a lot. I've even bought some. They are significantly cheaper from those in South Korea. Having purchased what is undeniably the real thing from Korea, I have reason to believe that the ones from China are knock-offs. The print resolution is a little off, the packaging is different, and the paper itself is markedly different. But, like I said, I've bought 'em, and they still look nice! :-)
