Announcement   A mail art subscription is for the person who appreciates small works of art and aches for a time when snail mail actually meant that something special might arrive in the post.

Do you know someone who (still) writes letters? This is the kind of thing that is right up their alley. It's like having a pen pal who crafts a collage just for them each month, writes a personal note on the back, and sends it in the mail.

You can also think of a mail art subscription as joining the Collage-A-Month Club.

If you or someone you know fits that description then treat yourself or them to the gift that keeps on giving with a 3, 6, or 12 month mail art subscription.

Each Artisanal Postcard is an original piece of artwork, signed by and with a note from the artist. Subsequent collages are sent every 30 days until the subscription expires.

Made to order, collages measure approximately 4"x 6".

Domestic and international subscriptions available and the postage is always included in the price.

{ ENVELOPE }
For the person who wants a clean collage that will arrive in an envelope with no signs of carrier-handling.

{ POSTCARD }
For the person who loves mail art and what the USPS does to it between the time it leaves the studio and arrives in their mailbox including tears, machine cancellation marks, and code stickers.

{ PUZZLE }
A collage puzzle is comprised of 6 or 12 postcards, the design of which will become whole again at the end of the subscription. COMING SOON!

SOMETIMES MAIL GETS LOST
Sad but true. If the original gets lost, please convo me. Since everything is scanned for the archive, it will be replaced with a digital copy.

If this is a gift, please include the name and address of the recipient in the
"Note from Buyer" field at check-out.

This camera is awesome and I have so many ideas in mind on how to use it! It is in great condition, it arrived quickly, and was packaged very securely. Jill seems very sweet and included a really nice note as well!

About

Art in Your Mailbox!

I have to glue little bits of paper down everyday! No joke. About four years ago, making the collage postcards replaced keeping a sketchbook. As of June 2016, I have made (and sent) exactly 1,300.

Artisanal Postcards is the arm of my studio that aspires to use the services of the global postal system as a method of distributing art; art that is delivered to and fits in a mailbox. Inspired by the dadaists, it is comprised of two distinct creative nodes: The Random Acts of Mail Art Project and Mail Art Subscription Services.

Through the Random Acts of Mail Art Project (a completely commerce-free endeavor that aligns with the concept of Random Acts of Kindness) I sent over 500 postcards in 2013 to cities all over the United States and to countries including Australia, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Singapore, the Philippines, and the United Kingdom. Recipients were nominated through social media in an effort to reach out to those creative types who appreciate handmade works and to broaden the audience who might. Nothing was expected in return; it was simply a small creative gesture meant to cut through the noise of daily life.

Each “artisanal” postcard is a collage with the number in which it was made and titled with found words/phrases pulled out of context from collage scraps and articles from print media.

Now my collage postcards are available via subscription in 6 or 12 month plans; domestic or international.

I will continue to make and send collage postcards until my studio is purged of all art materials or when there are no more addresses, or as the case may be, no more post office.
