Miniature Postal Service, The World's Smallest Letter
Do you still love to send a letter by using post office service? I thought very rare people using kind of this service nowadays. I don’t know why this happen. The most possible reason is we often use technology in our life. A long time ago we still use letter to send birthday greeting, valentines, Christmas card, even in my country there were many people using letter to send Idul Fitri greeting. This was also the busiest industry for the special moment. Personally, I miss this one. Unforgettable moment was when we wait the letter came to our house. Although it just for a love letter. But the moment like that almost gone. Have you the same feeling with me? We love to use email, Facebook, Twitter, short messaging service by cellular phone or BlackBerry to send greeting. High technologies help us do all this activities only in a view minutes. Just type a letter in a small keyboard and then press a butto, the message and greeting will send to recipient. Wow, very easy and we never thought about this in the past when we still using a postal service. We called this “technology in our hand”. This phenomenon really happened in my country. Post office change function not only for business correspondence but also a place of payment of all bills. With the reason to cover the cost. Deep in my heart, I felt sad to know the fact about this. I don’t know with other country. Is the habit of sending letter through post office still done by people? I hope you can share with me.
But yesterday, I found something unique related with postal service or sending letter by using post office. Which could remind us, how we send the letter by post office. There’s a business idea come from a woman namely Lea Redmond. She was founder of “World’s Smallest Postal Service”. This is a unique service which offered by the little post office in San Francisco. I thought she is a creative person who has brilliant idea to create such of this business. I thought this is the only ones post office which has kind of this service.
Lea’s service is so special. She makes tiny transcription. She said that all the idea was came in summer 2008. But now after 15 months she has transcribed and sent thousand of letter and card. Wow, I can’t imagine a woman like her can do this alone. I thought with her talent, she makes this with all heart. She helps many people with special skill. She has done her work in the small office in San Francisco. She wrote all the customer order with her hand on special note-paper smaller, even the small stamps look cute. What makes her work so special is the letter use matching envelope complete with tiny but detailed wax seal on the back.
She doing this with all her heart until she’s come to realize many other people are simply charmed by her miniature postal service. Like an artist she uses magnifying glass to help her work. Personally, I really appreciate her works. Because all these written in tiny letters, carefully wrapped and sealed with a stamp miniature complete with sender’s initial. I would think twice about making works like her.
To protect this letter during the shipping, Lea uses transparent envelopes equipped with a magnifying glass for identifying the mailing address. To make sure this envelope didn’t get lost. Are you interest to order? Just prepare $8 for for the Valentines Day mailing rates at the World’s Smallest Postal Service. This price include the shipping charge for letter. I heard other services about small package containing an antique China button just for $10. I hope this hub give us a new knowledge about another creative person who can survive with her idea. She has profitable business, right now. And many people satisfied using her service. I hope this hub useful for us. As an information or give us motivation in life and we can create another business using our talent like her. Please enjoy all the pictures inside this hub.
