We firstly want to thank everyone so much for buying our first box. We are so grateful to everyone for supporting us! In the blog today we will be doing the official unboxing of the second Badger Box 'Great Adventures'. For this box we’ve gone with the theme ‘Great Adventures’ which is based around all those great trips we want to go on, be it a day trip or a two week jetsetting extravaganza.

Inky Collective is ran by the lovely Jen Wright, when deciding what we wanted in our ‘Great Adventures’ box, Jen was a clear contender to collaborate with. We truly miss the days when snail mail was at it’s best with hand written letters and quirky postcards. These bright and brilliant postcards are perfect to send to a friend, or to display on your own wall or shelf as a beautiful mini prints. It has been hand printed with antique lead type, Each individual letter is placed and spaced with Jen’s own inky fingers. each card is hand pressed on an antique Adana letterpress in her London studio. just knowing this makes us love them more! We decided with Jen to do two postcards that read ‘Wish You Were Here’ and ‘Glad You Are Not Here’ - the LATTER would be great to send to someone as a bit of friendly banter!

Hole in My Pocket is the practise name of architect and artist Allistair Burt. Allistair has worked on a vast range of projects from major exhibitions, to illustration and film-making. The card’s greeting is ‘Slugs are merely snails that got restless and set out for adventures' which we thought was a lovely note to leave on with the great adventures box. we love this card and everytime we look at it we can’t help but smile. Without a doubt Allistair's work will make you laugh, smile or go ‘oooh’. Find out more about Hole in My Pocket via their website: www.holeinmypocket.com
Sukie is ran by dynamic duo Julia and Darrell. When searching for lovely bits to put it our ‘Great Adventures’ box we were really intrigued about Sukie. Sukie Travel Journals have silk screen printed card covers and contain a selection of lined, plain, squared, craft and framed papers. They also have glassine pockets and manila envelopes/ storage pockets for storing or collecting ephemera and souvenirs. We absolutely love these travel journals and think they are a fantastic place for writing down memories and saving tickets from your wonderful adventures.
