Being able to have four choices of Pictorial Postmarks Reflecting 81818 is fun being able to capture the whimsy of the numbers for today’s August 18, 2018, date. This extra bit of whimsy for my letter writing is fun and a treat. Think of it like the Pictorial Postmarks where Date Meets Zip. And earlier this year I was blogging on 3.14 Pi Day Letter Writing.
The four locations having Pictorial Postmarks celebrating each their respective events that have the August 18, 2018 date are:
- Machias Wild Blueberry – Festival Machias, ME;
- Woodleaf Tomato Festival – Woodleaf, NC;
- Aumsville Corn Festival – Aumsville, OR, and
- WYPEX – Cheyenne, WY
In the USPS Postal Bulletin 22500 that came out on Thursday, it includes the details of how to request.
“Customers wishing to obtain a postmark must affix stamps to any envelope or postcard of their choice, address the envelope or postcard to themselves or others, insert a card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness, and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope and address it to: Pictorial Postmarks, followed by the Name of the Station, Address, City, State, ZIP+4® Code, as listed next to the postmark.
Customers can also send stamped envelopes and postcards without addresses for postmark, …”
What I really like is being able to still have the date on my envelope even requesting after today. The fine print is this is for 30 days then expires. Enjoy!
