We love those  postal additions!

Some times mail art gets lost in the mail, and other times the mail company is so kind to add something to our mail art. Dynamic art, I love that!

In this group you can post the postal additions to the mail art that you´ve sent or received. Additions by the mail companies which made you smile, touched you or whatever. Additions which are, in fact, part of the Mail Art!

Not loving this postal addition:

I had to pay the customs fee, about $42, before I could see what it was!

Though it was a nice mail art "gift".

Pre-weighed and correctly stamped envelope was labeled 'insufficient postage' and returned to my mailbox. Too bad they cancel the stamp, I'll have to pay the post office a visit I'm afraid. I am curious about their answer.

I love those postal additions...

but not the new Greek postal rates additions!!!

From 1 euro we jumped to 2 euro for postage for "B" class to Europe...

and 2.50 euro to the USA and beyond. It happened Friday,28 July, sigh!

There is much room for the mail company to place their sticker:

But out of all other square centimeters they chose this location:

So they hid the important message

I lost the envelope, but I remember it made me laugh. A returned envelope
A postman had written by hand: illegible writing, make an effort!
It is true!

"X" marks the spot by HELLenic Post :-)

This package has been sent and returned already 3 times, sigh...

USPS kept adding postal code stickers on a mail art postcard from Picasso:

they look blank, but there is a fine orange barcode,

and being reused on mail art :-)
