Information

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!

Thanks, Heleen, soooo glad that this all arrived

safely to you...i think it was first mailed in November!

It's a nice addition (fortunately not sticked to the beautiful stamp) and this time it arrived safe and sound! (Thanks to the other envelope :-) )

Thank you very much, Katerina!

Have I mentioned that mail art that I sent to Heleen was returned to Greece? Duh...maybe I have to remember to put the post box number on it? I hope the new sending arrives ok :-(

Did I say I love postal additions?

Sometimes it is not that easy to embrace additions. For instance the postal sticker added by a private post transport company to this work of art, sent by Erni Bär:
Where has the Haptic Werewolf gone?!??

However, those private postal companies normally don't deliver to post boxes ( 'postbus' in Dutch), so the good news is that the SpongeBär at least has landed and arrived in the correct place!

Thank you for posting, Katerina! It seems the Hippopotamus has traveled very safe, with this added soft cover!

Heleen - snip snip and it was gone while I watched aghast - all part of the mailart experience...

@Stripygoose: so this was a postal diminution (instead of an addition)!.... Or have you been able to prevent the postal scissors from altering the mail artwork?

@Katerina :-) tmho a postal 'Nixie' is the Word of the Year!
