What do you like the most? Postcards or envelopes?I myself like both. Only with the current rates, the sending of a postcard costs the same as an envelope. So when I send out a postcard, it costs the same as sending out an envelope with included 3…Continue

This envelope contained a sheet of stamps on the theme Ticket, Ticket by Jack Lattemann. Notice the superb USA rat stamps and the stamp Jack made from a picture I sent him.This last is on the right below his address sticker, that was very nice of him.

This is my stamp, made with the help of my friend.

thanks for the kind words res. yes, i believe those are lychee on the stamp. a typical 5 NT stamp in comparison to the commemorative stamp of the cathedral. the printed matter stamp is one i bought. it was originally self-inking but has run out of ink so i've just been using it with my ink pads. that's why you can see the extra rectangle around the main stamped image. the envelope is just one i bought in the stationery shop. i usually buy different sizes so i can choose which fits what i'm sending the  most closely.

January 2020 - Another example of a William Mellott envelope broken into sections by vertical stripes of patterned washi tapes. The horizontal washi at the bottom caught the barcode. I love the new address stamp and the Chinese printed matter stamp. Possibly lychee fruit on the postage stamp?

The overall oranges and beiges make a beautiful contrast with blue sky of the cathedral stamp. Mellott's envelopes vary in size, and always fit their contents exactly, so I'm guessing they might even be completely handmade.

i did do a few envelopes like that to various people and then stopped for some reason. i have too much tape so the envelopes are often a way for me to use up some of those rolls.

glad you dug that envelope res! i should do some more film strip envelopes.

Colorful September 2019 envelope by William Mellott of Taiwan. Its horizontal plane is divided vertically into four sections - one a stamped celluloid film motif. (Hello, robot Felix the Cat!) The lighthouse postage stamp has four tiny lighthouse color registrations in the selvage, and its three red stripes run perpendicular to the stripes of the washi tape on the right. And there's lots more to look at! Thank you, William.
