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!

Some postal additions we DON'T love :

Sometimes it's worth the cost of a stamp to get something like this returned

I;ll save a space for it on the tree - it will look great there with its red and green border.

Well it took six weeks to travel 8000 miles there and back, it should be with you by Christmas.

True, but not having it added should not make it undeliverable. I've had plenty of mail arrive without a zip code.

Comment by Bradford on August 18, 2016 at 8:16pm

adding the zip would fix the delivery problem, especially with the correct 9-digit zip code: 43206-2009

Comment by FinnBadger on August 18, 2016 at 8:12pm

Other than having no zip code (which might slow down a little), it should have made it just fine, Alan, as it is perfectly clear. I love your painted envelope series, so i, too, hope it makes a second crossing.

This envelope to FinnBadger Phillip has the correct address (I've checked with him) but got returned by US Mail with a 'no such number' Nixie. I've forgotten what's inside now, he'll have to wait to see whether it gets delivered the second time. I suppose it depends whether it gets handled by the bloke who can read…

@FinnBadger: I received it like Heleen. But the stamp wasn't upside down :)

Comment by Heleen de Vaan on April 30, 2016 at 9:06am
@FinnBadger: Did you put the stamp upside down?!? Just now I see! - and just now I notice the monkey, too! No sorry, no worry, flowers can be seen from all sides and besides that, in mail art all is possible. It is a pleasure, no effort, to turn the card upside down to see the monkey and the Chinese character from a good point of view. :-)

@Alan, you got me! I was thinking of W. Reginald Bray, who has sent a lot of mail, and thus spent a lot, to get interesting mail in return... 110 years ago.
Speaking for myself, I'm planning just one try, not thinking of the costs, more in order to not molest Australian Mail too much. Or maybe I could send a request directly to the Australian post office.
