World's Smallest Postal Service


The World's Smallest Postal Service (WSPS) is a teeny tiny transcription service and roaming post office based in the San Francisco Bay Area and also available online. Lea Redmond is the Postmaster, setting up her tiny mobile office in cafes and shops where passers-by can write a letter and have it turned into a "world's smallest letter." The letter is transcribed on a miniature desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender's initial pressed into it, packaged up with a magnifying glass in a glassine envelope, and finished off with a large wax seal.

I would have adored this as a child — and I'm still finding this seriously cute now.

Ooh ooh, I have just ordered one of these for my husband. It is our first wedding anniversary in September so I've written him a love letter (a bit mushy) as paper is the gift for the first year.
I can't wait for him to receive it :)
