I’ve always wondered why we bother to stick  Airmail/Par Avion stickers on mail that goes overseas. Surely, if the postal folks see a postcard in the bag, they just stick it on a plane right? Surely it’s counter-intuitive to stick more weight on a letter in the form of a sticker if you want to send it by plane…

For many years I assumed that every postcard went by air, until I decided to send a few without airmail stickers and noticed that some were taking a looooong time to arrive. Thing is, that in the early days of my REAL wall and mailart365 I sent so many postcards I couldn’t really keep track of which ones I put airmail stickers on so I never quite concluded whether the Airmail sticker made a difference.

So now it’s time to work out whether or not Airmail stickers make a difference. For every purchase, I’ll send 2 postcards, randomly picked from our box of postcards to your address, one with an airmail sticker on, and one without and I want to know if they arrive at the same time. Once they arrive, leave a review in the reviews section and let us all know!

This is a limited experiment, which I’ll send from London while we’re back there between Romania and Vietnam between 12-17 September 2013 and is only open to folks outside the UK

An e-learning professional and physics teacher by trade, Andy discovered late in life that he rather likes art. He set up my REAL wall and mailart365 to make and send as much art in the post as possible but spends far too much on postal costs
