Customer Envelope Art!

One of the things we miss about getting most of our orders through the mail is the way customers used to decorate their envelopes. People didn’t just put a stamp on them and send them out, these folks spent some serious time and effort. While I was going through an archive, I came across a stack of them that we’d saved. One is by Steve Purcell, creator of Sam and Max! Here’s a few of the best.

    Wait a minute, that first envelope is from Steve Purcell. He created the Sam & Max comics. That envelope is a collector’s item!
