World’s Smallest Postal Service

Link of the day - Blind Spots: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things


Lea Redmond runs the World’s Smallest Postal Service, a teeny tiny letter transcription service.

She sets up shop in cafes and stores, and is now available online. Here’s how it works: You write a letter (up to 12 whole sentences!) and Lea transcribes it onto tiny stationary (1 x 1.5 inches) with a magical transcription device. It then goes into a tiny envelope which gets addressed, stamped, and sealed with a miniscule wax seal with your initial on it.

The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a large “World’s Smallest Letter” wax seal. Lea can send your letter directly to a recipient of your choice, or to you if you would like to distribute it yourself.

Lea also offers some new products, World’s Smallest Birthday Cards, Winter Holiday Cards, Valentines, and cards from the Tooth Fairy! Or write a letter from one of Santa’s elves! Or to welcome a new baby into the world.
