Some Fun Sites

Several web sites and groups keep coming up in the postcards I am receiving, so I thought I would share them.  I'm excited to see how many people are interested in mail art and letter writing, and things postal in general.

Letter Writers Alliance has some really cool stuff available, including rubber stamps, stickers, stationery, and postal PIGEONS!!!


Postcrossing is a site that allows you to send and receive postcards from random places all over the world.  Check it out!

A Month of Letters is coming to a close, as it is a February project, but I hope that Mary Robinette Kowal will renew it. I've gotten lots of postcards and letters with the participant sticker on them.  Start your own Month of Letters!

I found a Flickr site on Mail Art that you can join.  FABULOUS gallery of work there!

Please send me, via comment or e-mail, and links to groups that you are involved in or know about, that are dedicated to mail art or postal communication.

  6. I do Postcrossing, but infrequently. Have received some wonderful postcards from the most obscure places on the planet.

  8. My favorite mail art swapping site is Mail Me Some Art (I see the link above from someone else)- Karen comes up with such clever themes and gives plenty of notice. Then, she handles all the swapping so everyone always gets a card. I've also connected with a few through IUOMA (also above) but find their site difficult to negotiate - it's not very intuitive.

    Thanks for helping to promote mail art - we all LOVE it!
