guest blogging




My very first guest blog post is on The Paper Place blog today!  I had a ton of fun writing these letters.  Can't go wrong with translucent wax paper envelopes, pretty patterned papers and boat stamps.

  1. Congratulations on the guest blogging! So great to see your little business growing. I am just wondering Jaime from all of your experience sending letters, are Canada Post very fussy about the size and shape of letters, the envelope texture ie waxxy or rougher homemade paper, the font or handwriting used and how many stamps there are? I sometimes worry my letters wont be delivered if they are too different, handmade or unusual. It was a big suprise to me that here in Vancouver posties walk as they ride motorbikes in Australia. I have also been warned that Canada Post is not always reliable (presumably there is more risk invovled posting internationally?), but overall the whole system is quite brilliant the way it works! Always enjoy your updates :) Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Sharolyn! And thank you!

    I've barely encountered any issues with Canada Post being fussy about unusual letters. Occasionally a super-mini letter may get lost. (A friend and I have an ongoing mini project. We try to see how tiny the letter can be and actually be delivered. It's totally fun!)

    And I've haven't had any international letters going missing. Sometimes delivery can be slow as molasses - around Christmas or during the winter. I think it has to do with the volume of mail and the snowstorms.

    Hope this helps!
