It is not too early to send off your envelopes now that the 2017 St Patrick Pictorial Postmark Available is here for the entire month!

Doing this last year was so much fun and enthusiastically received by the friends and family I sent my cards to for St. Patrick’s Day.

For the instructions on how to send away, this link will give all the details at the USPS Postal Bulletin.

… “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 below.” …

This was my envelope last year: “StPatricksEnvelopeCachet2016HR”

It is available March 1–31, 2017.

This is the address:

The Shrine of Saint Patrick

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day Station


111 West Commercial

Kahoka, MO 63445-9998

Consider doing something like this to your envelopes this year when you send your St. Patrick’s Day cards.  This is definitely something I’m doing again this year and so happy to have plenty of advance time to get these off into the mail.

Happy Thursday!
