Send Valentine’s Day Cards Postmarked From Valentine, TX

Looking for a thoughtful twist to sending a Valentine’s Day card? Have it postmarked from a town with a name associated with Valentine’s Day.

I called the postmaster in Valentine, Texas, and he explained the process.

All you have to do is send your card addressed and stamped inside a larger envelope addressed to the Postmaster Remailing Program of the town from which you want it mailed.

He also said the elementary school in Valentine has a contest every year for the students to come up with a cancellation stamp for the post office to use on all Valentine’s Day cards.

Interesting Fact: Valentine, Texas’s population is 134, and the post office’s one employee hand stamps 7,000 to 10,000 cards. WOW!

I’m sending a box of chocolates as a thank you for stamping my cards.

Anything worth while takes a little planning so mail your cards early in order for your Valentine(s) to receive their card by Valentine’s Day.

I didn’t send Christmas cards this year, and since this is such a novel idea, I’ve decided to send Valentines to friends and family. I’m not placing a return address so they will be forced to look at the stamp of origination. That way they won’t miss the stamp of Valentine, Texas!

Here are three towns and addresses from which you can send Valentine’s Day cards:

Postmaster Remailing Program
P.O. Box 6
Valentine, TX 79854-0006

or

Postmaster Remailing Program
292 Hwy 31
Romance, AR 72136

or

Loveland Valentine Remailing Program
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538

Not only are there towns connected with love, romance and Valentine’s Day, but also Christmas, Holiday Seasons and Halloween too!

What other names can you think of that would be fun to be postmarked from? How about Friendship?

Love, a kiss, and a box of chocolates (don’t ever forget the chocolates) is all I need for Valentine’s Day!
