Alzheimer’s Association BRE uses vaguely holiday-themed designs
Nearly a month has passed since I last posted about a business reply envelope with preprinted faux stamp designs, but one was in a mailing from the Alzheimer’s Association that I found waiting today in my post office box.
The three stamp-sized designs picture leaves, berries, and acorns. I get the impression it’s all supposed to be of a vaguely fall and winter holiday theme.
I also received a stack of other solicitations, several of which had nonprofit stamps on them, but nothing else of particular note about which to write. Maybe next week’s mail will bring something more interesting!
Philosateleia’s New South Greenland FDCs arriving in mailboxes
Last Monday, I mailed out a batch of first day covers bearing copies of Philosateleian Post’s New South Greenland Discovery Bicentennial stamp, and those are already reaching mailboxes. My copy arrived late last week.
As you can see, the upper right corner of my stamp was scraped during processing of the cover. It’s annoying when that happens, but not at all unusual, and I’ve seen much worse. At least most of the stamp is there!
If you missed out on requesting first day cover service but you would still like a complimentary copy of the stamp, just see my original announcement of the stamp’s issue.
Although I’m registered to receive USPS Informed Delivery emails each day, I was surprised by several items waiting in my post office box last week. One of the pieces for which I had not seen a preview image was this unusual first day cover bearing a copy of the Chief Standing Bear stamp issued in May.
For this FDC, longtime reader Kenneth M. used an ACLU postcard promoting an election between two candidates for district attorney.
