    Hi, I want to ask that if I want to get a pictorial postmark by SASE method, how much postage I need to affix? Any or at least first class mail postage? Thanks.

    • Joshua McGee says:

      Thanks for the question, Ying Shi.

      For the SASE method, each cover you submit must bear at least First Class postage (47¢), and the return envelope must bear sufficient First Class postage for the total combined weight of the covers you have submitted, plus its own weight. You will need a postal scale or some other method to weigh/estimate their combined weight.

      Likely the SASE will weigh between 1 and 2 ounces (68¢) if you submit 1–2 covers, and between 2 and 3 ounces (89¢) if you submit 3–4 covers. I have a postage table generator at http://collectpostmarks.com/postage-calculator/ if you want an easy way to look up postage rates.

      Please let me know if any of this is unclear.

    I've been searching like crazy for a special Thanksgiving Pictorial Postmark. For the life of me, I can't find anything. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    • Joshua McGee says:

      Hi David,

      I would suggest checking back at this page on the 10th of this month. Any Thanksgiving pictorials are likely to show up in the November 9th Postal Bulletin.

      You could also send for postmarks from post offices with Thanksgiving-themed names. You can find them through the Post Office Search function on this site. Postmarks from Turkey, Turkey City, or Turkey Creek, for instance, might work well.

    I am looking for any pictorial post marks on Red Cross tasks and activities, can't find any, your suggestions please if any? Thanks,

    SC Garg

  4. Ray Orem says:

    Your website is great and very helpful.

    Why don't you list cancels for new stamp issues ?

  5. Brian Rogers says:

    Does anybody else cut up cereal boxes to make stiffening material?

  6. Brian Rogers says:

    Thanks, Joshua.

  7. David Evans says:

    Are there any announcements of postmarks for Total Eclipse yet? I really want to get in on that one.

    David

    • Joshua McGee says:

      My understanding is that there will be matching pictorials in cities along the path of totality, but no details have been announced yet. I will update the calendar as I learn more.

  8. Michael Luzzi says:

    Josh, thanks for all the work you do on this wonderful website. I think I will take a chance and send in for a few of these. Hopefully, they all come back nicely done and I won't be disappointed. Otherwise, I will have to contact Celia. You know the drill when they come back poorly serviced.
