DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.

I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford the postage. Then, the DECO world sort of died out. I’d like to see if any of you are interested. 

Let me know if you have questions! Hugs, Bonniediva

The mailman just reminded me that decos and Add&Pass books might be less costly to mail if they are sent as media mail. It’s just a few days slower than first class. Be sure to ask which is less expensive for the book you are sending; sometimes…Continue

Thanks, Carolyn.  That's encouraging!

Amy, I just got one back that I launched in July. It had six or fewer workable pages.

Just wondering - has anyone received a completed deco back?  How long did it take?

Hi Kayenderes,

I'm mailing you this book today.

I had a deco come back to me "insufficient postage" which was annoying as the post office had affixed the postage.  They looked at it shook their heads and said, "that postage is correct but the validating stamp covered the first digit so someone thought it was $.80 not $1.80.  They cleaned the stamp off, stuck it back in the post.  Hope for better luck this time.
