Zach Frechette, co-founder of GOOD Magazine, just launched Quarterly, a subscription service for wonderful things. For 48h, starting now, you can sign up and take their Public Beta for a spin.

Quarterly is a subscription service that enables people to receive physical items in the mail from influential contributors of their choice. Yes, this service is about the magic of receiving physical mail.

Subscribe to a ‘Quarterly Contributor‘ and then just sit back and wait for that first surprise mailing in your mailbox. Just imagine, getting your mail after a long day at work and discovering a Quarterly surprise between all of those catalogs and bills. Lovely concept, right?

I have been a subscriber for their non-public beta and let me tell you, I felt like a kid under the christmas tree every single time I opened one of these. The current contributors are Scott Belsky, No more Dirty Looks, Liz Danzico, Alexis Madrigal, Geoff Manaugh, Maria Popova, Bobby Solomon and moi.

Keep in mind that you can subscribe to more than just one person. For now it’s US only but their plan is to add international destinations soon.

Check out the contributors. Read the about page for all the questions you might have.

  1. Amazing – looking forward to international shipping so I can sign up!

  2. I just subscribed to Liz, but it appears I can’t subscribe to more than one contributor at a time. I keep getting an error that states “Account Cannot create multiple subscriptions for same account.” I’m using the same credit card and account info. Odd.

  3. love it ! Hope international shipping soon :)

  4. Hey Matt,

    For our beta we are limiting users to one contributor so that everyone gets a chance to enjoy! Once we go live publicly, we will open the flood gates. Follow us on twitter (@quarterly) where we will announce that.

  5. Mira & Fassin,

    International shipping is on our radar. We are working on making Quarterly available to everyone. As with the above, follow us on twitter (@quarterly) where we will announce any progress on the shipping front.

  6. Haha! Wow, my name is Mira too, and when I read this I thought,’I can’t wait for international shipping!’
    Hope South Africa gets included :)

  7. Cool! But US-only … :( Good to hear though that you’re working on this! :)

  8. Wow, that’s what I was searching for, what a data!
