In Time for Valentine Texas Pictorial Postmark

There is time to secure a Valentine Texas Pictorial Postmark on your Valentine mailings! This year once again the city of Valentine, Texas will be having a Pictorial Postmark they will add the cancellation to your mail if you send to them. Later in this post, I’m including the details of how to send to them within a larger outer envelope.

Valentine Texas Pictorial Postmark    

The date will be February 14, 2018.  I’m seeing where in years past the postmark was inked in red!  First of all, it is fine to gather up all of your Valentine’s cards, all addressed, sealed, and stamped, and put into one big envelope.

This is the address you’ll be sending them:

February 14, 2018 City of Valentine Love Station

February 14, 2018

City of Valentine

Love Station


311 West California

Valentine, TX 79854-9998

Second, be sure to read all these details before sealing up that big envelope! I’m including from the current Postal Bulletin 02-01-2018:

“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…”

In conclusion, if you are thinking of having this done, now is the time to ACT on our best of intentions and get into the mail quickly!

Anchors Aweigh,
