For Veteran Mail Artists and Newbies... here is why I love the Add/Passes:

1. I love the fact that they are COLLABORATIVE.

2. I'm a collage artist: I look at the add/pass and see what needs to be glued and where. I usually use something humorous or whatever scraps are lying around on my desk.

3. Cool to see what other people do to it.

4. I'm happy to send them on. I have a lot of stuff piling up in my studio, so it's nice to mail them away.

5. It's fun to send a full one home to its original maker.

6. HOT TIP: Buy really good glue sticks, like Elmer's CRAFT BOND OR PHOTO BOND. Keep them handy and glue away!

It's taken me time to appreciate it, but a real bonus in ADD&PASS for me, is that after the adding and posting, I'm left with no more than memories (just a digital image, because I'm obsessive). I'm always de-cluttering and was thinking a lot about 'death cleaning' even before the coronovirus pandemic, so this fits the bill!

I'll always take the add/passes, Mom Cat!

i think they can make a nice addition to a mailing. though i think i prefer add to and returns since they are more direct.

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on January 23, 2020 at 10:05am I know to send 'em all to Illinois :-)

You like Add/Pass little boekies, too?
