Skull Appreciation Day mail art 2012

If you’re not familiar with mail art, the idea is simple, anything that can make it through the mail system with proper postage on it is acceptable! Many people like to stick with 2-D work on a standard sized postcard, but the sky’s pretty much the limit. Need some inspiration for what to do? Check out some of the submissions from the last few years on the Skull Appreciation Day Mail Art blog!

  1. I maybe should mention it is on one ply of toilet paper affixed to card stock with glue stick and sprayed with a few light coats of clear glaze..I don’t want to cover it because I feel it takes away from the texture. Well as long as I know I can put it in an envelope, then it’s all good! thanks Mim 🙂

  2. I send my collaged postcards without envelopes. I make sure that I’ve done a good job with the adhesive and 99% of the time my Mail Art makes it through the post within the U.S. and internationally. Some of my Mail Art friends use envelopes. It’s all good.

  3. I have something to send that is postcard size, but I am worried about it getting ruined in the mail. should I put it in an envelope or does it have to be mailed as a postcard?

  4. I love what you guys tend to be up too. This sort of clever work and coverage!
    Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my personal blogroll.

  5. This has been a very exciting event in the past, so I’m sure there’ll be some amazing skully Mail Art coming your way this year.
