Mini Snail Mail (DIY with template)

Mini Snail Mail found via AppracadabraImagine sending the cutest little postcards. Nice, huh? And then imagine sending the cutest little postcards – bearing your own pictures – supernice!
Lea Redmond, who runs the worlds smallest post office, made it possible. She made a tiny postcard template, which you can download here, and which guides you through the steps needed to create your own mini snail mail.

World’s Smallest Post Service (WSPS) from Leafcutter Designs on Vimeo.

The WSPS began in 2008 as a quirky little social art project. Postmaster Lea Redmond sets up her tiny roaming office in cafes and shops in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and offers a teeny tiny letter transcription service to passers-by. At these appearances the letters are transcribed by hand on a miniature, wooden roll-top desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s initial pressed into it, and packaged up with a magnifying glass.


O, I do hope we run into the Worlds Tiniest Post Office sometime – I love – love, love – snail mail. And you? Snail Mail lover too? Or more kind of a fast texting fan?
