  1. Ying Shi says:

    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.
