Illustrator Marlow Lune likes to build a world around each piece they create. Each of their work features new characters, imagined backstories and a rich, inviting illustrations.
After building up a considerable following on their Patreon project the Merry Blackbird Postcard Society–600+ members and counting–Marlowe was looking for a way to keep the postcards personal, while avoiding a handwritten not note on each one.
They turned to Plynth to link each card to a bundle of content, just for Patreon subscribers. A monthly note, a special playlist and a timelapse video of the piece being made.
"Plynth has been a fantastic way for me to add an intimate connection with my patrons when they receive their postcard deliveries," said Lune.
"I had begun with handwritten notes, but when I outgrew the ability to keep up with this, Plynth enabled me to not only bring back the joy of discovering what’s in the envelope, but I can add all kinds of media like process videos and playlists that I couldn’t before. I’ve really been enjoying using it and I think my patrons have too."

LA-based musician and activist Alfred Nomad is always looking for new ways to engage his audience and reward his fans. Whether it's personalized texts, creative showcases or unique merch, Nomad has been deliberate about building a sustainable fanbase and thinking of new ways to cut through the noise.
Indie record label GroupUP Music was looking for a new way to connect with its fans. With concerts and festivals on hold, they were missing ample opportunities to get their latest releases and new artists in front of an audience. Two things they had going for them was a passionate community and a killer lineup of artists like Michelle Willis, Mark Lettieri and Grammy-winning band Snarky Puppy. So they decided to turn to something old, and made it new: a record club.
