Painted airmail chevrons

Earlier in the year I blogged a few chevron envelopes I printed. They were inspired by designs that Alan B made. Fortunately for me he sent me one of them... and turns out he hand painted them using a stencil. Really cool. And Alan included a fantastic printed note.

You may/may not have noticed that there is something odd about the way the stamps are affixed. That's because this envelope had a misadventure.

    1. Yes, at first when I saw them online that he had printed them, but the fact that they are hand painted makes it an extra special envelope.

  2. I received one of these. Very cool, indeed.
    But... is it the same envelope, re-sent?

    1. Yes - Alan covered up the first set of stamps with new ones. You can see where he added the zip code, and where he wrote to USPS that my address is real on the front.
