Valentine Postmark


I know it's still January and snowflake time, but this is a fun Valentine project, and if you want to do it at all, you have to get going now. It's a great project for us recessionistas, and hey -- non-fattening, too? Woo-hoo!

You can mail your valentine cards to a "romantic" city and they'll stamp it with a special postmark and mail it to your sweetie-pie! Here's the how-to:

  pick up a card for your special someone and address the envelope

  put a stamp on it (I recommend the current LOVE stamp from USPS)

  place your stamped envelope inside a larger envelope.

  address the outside envelope to one of the loving cities in our country, like this:

  Postmaster; ATTN: Valentines; City, State, Zip Code.

A lot of folks do this, so your best bet is to get your postmark project going now. Even with a lovey-dovey postmark, a late card isn't going to earn you any brownie points!


Here's a list of some romantic cities:

Lovely KY 41231
