We are currently out of town on a Service Trip to Vermont, rebuilding houses impacted by Floods of 2023. Physical products will be shipped out in the order received starting on May 23. Thank you in advance for understanding and supporting our business.


Hey Sis!
We are so glad you stopped by!

The Melanoted subscription is here and we are so excited to invite you to have this experience with us.  This subscription has two simple goals. 

  1. We hope to create cards, where we can see ourselves and realize how amazing, beautiful, dope, awesome, worthy and deserving we are. Why? Because representation matters, periodt. 
  2. We want to be a catalyst for reconnection, now that we are on the other side of the pandemic,  connection is so important for our overall well being. 
    These cards are blank inside, so you can write a short sentiment or the +
  3. perfect long hello to reconnect with loved ones.  The choice is yours.

​ You know what they say, "empowered women, empower women" and WE are definitely here for this.  

Here are some examples of our luxury notecards card that we designed!  

Cards may vary in size, comparable to cards that you might find at your local drugstore.  The cards are blank inside, but we will provide you with ideas for sentiments that you can use. 

Each card will be designed by a Black woman and each month we will be sure to highlight them.



Why is supporting Black women designers important to us?
Black women are leading the way when it comes to entrepreneurship.  Black women are doing their thing and starting businesses to support their families and communities.  The challenge is that due to a lack of awareness and/or support, black women businesses are bringing in sales that are 5X less than all women owned businesses.  This is significant and it is time to see this change.  For this and more information, please check out and support  https://www.buyfromablackwoman.org

Can I return my cards?
Unfortunately we are not able to accept returns. If there is something in your box that you don't believe you will use, we recommend that you gift it to a friend or donate it. If you are truly unsatisfied with an item in your box, please reach out to us so we can see what we can do to make things right.  

Can I skip a month, pause or cancel my subscription?
Yes! You can manage all of these in your account. If you have any trouble send us an email at info@phillyhandmadeu.com.

What will be included?
There will be some pretty cool stuff.  Each month you will receive a set of beautiful cards, envelopes, seals, and stamps.  Follow us on instagram at handmadeustudio to check any reveal updates and spoilers. If you want to learn more about each designer we will include an insert in each box that tells you all about the designers that your purchase supports.  

When will my package arrive?
We ship at the end of the month, so we anticipate packages arriving around the 7th of the month.  

I can sign up anytime, right?
We have a limited number of cards available each month.  Once we sell out, they are gone.  We will periodically reach out to our email list if there are cancellations or if we are able to increase the number of subscribers in any given month.   The best thing to do is to get on our mailing list, so that you are the first to know when we re-open the subscription.
