Spunky funk - Funkybox and Wigglebox letterboxes

First impressions count, yet the first thing most of us see when we arrive home is a run-of-the-mill, standard issue letterbox, part of a streetscape of an uninspiring white metal and brown timber letterbox army.

Wigglebox letterboxes

Breaking out of letterbox boredom is easy with new funkyboxes and wiggleboxes. Functional yet funky, these twisted letterboxes are guaranteed to make an unforgettable first impression and deliver guests and homeowners smiling all the way to the front door.

Funkyboxes and wiggleboxes are supplied coated in Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic, or in pre-primed or kit-set versions leaving the proud new owner to complete the painting job themselves using their favourite Resene testpot colours.

With a funkybox of your own to make your inner self smile, collecting the mail will never be a chore again.

Creator: The Funky Box Company
Resene: Steve Keenan, North Shore Trade Sales Representative
