Today’s Outgoing Mail

Just for fun, I will frequently post a tweet or status update listing the destinations of my outgoing mail for any particular day. Today, however, in addition to some of the normal swaps and correspondence, I’m sending out the latest issue of Permit Patter, the newsletter of the Mailer’s Postmark Permit Club. Thankfully, the Club sends the materials and pays the postage.

Turns out that too much of anything can be a good thing: while I enjoy cancelling my own mail, I would not want soon to repeat having to do it nearly 200 times in one sitting. But the membership will know the joy of receiving mail cancelled with Gainesville, Georgia, Mailer’s Postmark Permit #1.

    Just wondering: How is that you are allowed to use your own postmark? I have never seen this before and would perhaps like to have one of my own! Thanks for any info.!

    I see from the list that you sent mail to an East Helena address. I won’t ask who it was, but I will say that I have a Mailer’s Permit No 1 for Helena, but haven’t used it since the early 1990’s. When I decided that I might want to use it last year, I discovered that I the century could not be changed, which means I have to have a new cancel cut. I may do that!

  7. Dave Dubé says:

    On second thought – I think you sent it to a friend of mine – Tom Mulvaney.
