The USPS Postal Bulletin from November 23, Thursday, is showing some wonderful Christmas Holidays Pictorial Postmarks 2017!
Town names include Rudolph, Ohio, and Santa Claus, Indiana, and here in North Carolina, Star, NC.
We can begin addressing our Christmas cards early. I’m posting today’s blog topic now instead of in December for extra time for planning ahead.
There are many beautiful Christmas Holidays Pictorial Postmarks 2017 available this year. Simply follow the instructions for mailing off and requesting. To read the entire process click here.
“All requests must include a stamped envelope or postcard bearing at least the minimum First-Class Mail® postage. Items submitted for postmark may not include postage issued after the date of the requested postmark. Such items will be returned unserviced.
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.”
As we wrap up our Sunday blog post, if Thanksgiving felt like it was here early this year, next year will arrive a day earlier. The 2018 date is November 22nd. The following year in 2019 it will be later on November 28th. Enjoy!
