"POSTAGE PAID" is a mail in art show open to anyone and everyone all over the world as long as you can create art on a 4"x6" postcard and mail it direly to us!

"Mail Art" is a movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service, and is also known as postal art or correspondence art. It initially developed in the New York Correspondence School in the 1950s and has since developed into a global art movement.

TO PARTICIPATE

raw for all to see! So keep it PG ! Art gory or graphic may be confiscated by the postal service!

2. You may use a pre-printed post card or make one yourself out of anything rigid as long as the back is left plain and has space for a stamp, your return address and our mailing address and the postal service can cancel stamp over your stamp. Please see
