Mail Exchange Leads to Ring Exchange

The U.S. Postal Service has issued a new edition in the popular line of Love stamps, just in time to embelish this year's valentines.

The graphic design features satin ribbons that spell out the word “Love” in a graceful, cursive script. These stamps are sure to adorn and embellish many sentimental greetings. They may even help an exchange of mail to have long lasting results.

Two people who participated in the post card exchanges at www.postcrossing.com certainly experienced having their mail make a big impact. Their exchanges eventually led them to a Postcrossing meeting in the Ukraine a year ago.

Ivan and Natalia continued to meet and do things together, like a photography course, kayaking, and attending more Postcrossing meetups. Then last fall, they decided to get married and of course, they celebrated by sending out lots of post cards to their friends!

You never know where a piece of mail may lead you.....

Emails just would not have had the same effect. With mail, you at least know -- from the handwriting -- that you're dealing with an actual human being! :)

I just wish our new Post card stamps were nicer. Last years you could put them on a postcard for the RSVP and they looked nice. I think this years....well I'm not a fan of them.
