Lovely work by Anne.

Envelopes or postcards

Please add me.  This is how I started doing mail art years ago.  Just envelopes.  No insides.  Or just postcards.  Pretty much the same idea.  Thanks.  Pam McVayContinue

I enjoyed this type of mailart in 2001 and would like to continue it now! Looking forward to sending new artful envelopes out into the world!

This looks like a fun group. I make envelopes out of papers I've made or fabric dyed in the yard. Collage is a long standing passion. I will send some by the end of September, once I clear the work table of other obligations. 

Cheers Gerda Osteneck

The stamp in the right corner of Rizzuto's envelope, smells like fruit--it's a scratch & sniff stamp! I couldn't resist making it part of the design.

Drama on the High Seas from Jean Jackson.  Love the "content not included stamp!  This person has some crazy cake rubber stamps!

And again, from Sam as it reached my postbox. I removed the tag from the post to see the fish faces later, what was easy as the envelope is "coated".

Our artists' group is organizing an exhibition on postal art in December.


We would like to request your participation for this just send us

a calligraphy envelope, illuminated, drawn ...

on the theme of travel (sea, air, earth, fantastic or imaginary)


We are committed to promoting culture, contact and this way of communicating is a nod to social networks.


I enclose the poster and if you want the payment I send it to the email address that you will communicate to me.

It would be a source of pride for our collective and myself to count you among our artists.
