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!

and here is a rare USPS postal "care":

it did arrive safely to Brooklyn!

Thanks, Brad, for the tip...

some envelopes with the NIXIE sticker I shall save in tack,

although several have already been recycled as "trashpo collage" :-0

Not funny, but rather incompetent at best.

Keep in mind that postal history collectors will pay for these envelopes if they're left intact.  Just remove the contents for resending and you can sell the original cover as is.

Not a funny April's Fool!

more return-to-sender in the mail delivery today :-( sigh

The arrow? the rubber stamping on the back? all the mail art sent to USA in October is being returned. New Mail Art is being sent in clean white envelopes now. Hope they arrive ok.

What to do when the USPS gives you mellow LEMON yellow?

Make Mail Art "lemonade" collage cards :-)

Who wants one of these???

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on March 23, 2021 at 2:40pm

fFve more just came today,returned from the States...

USPS had some double stickers on these:

yep, along the back, too:

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on March 13, 2021 at 3:47pm

I agree, perhaps the arrow is misleading, though i have used it on hundreds of other mailings. I am thinking that the postal machine didn't "flip" the envelopes to the address side, and instead it read the rubber stampings as "incorrect address", with a yellow "NIXIE" being attached automatically on the "under side"? 

Surely, no "human being" was looking at it!

I shall cease the arrow... 

and no rubber stamping on the back of the envelopes.

Comment by Alan Brignull on March 12, 2021 at 12:58pm

Katerina, do you think it might be the "TO-->" causing the problem? Perhaps the computerised machine can't read it then the human staff are too lazy/busy and just bung it straight back without even looking at it.
