So far, I’ve gotten one of our STD’s returned. Our stamps were cancelled, however. 

I just printed the addresses with our printer, and picked a swirly font. I used Coneria Script.

Not as nice as calligraphy, but I wanted it back in the mail. I didn’t want anyone to think they were left out.

@classyashley:  They were machine cancelled- so you can’t stick them back in the mail box without more postage. Them machine will read the barcode on the bottom and send them back to you again for lack of postage or becasue that’s where the barcode says it’s supposed to go.


Sorry. This happens a lot. My advice is don’t put a return address on a STD/postcard or on the back of an envelope. Not a lot of clerks catch that the letter is going to the wrong place and stuff gets stuck in a loop for a while, or goes to the wrong place altogether


edit: I work at a usps processing plant.

I would just tuck them into another envelope with a quick note ” Sorry, this was delayed getting to you. The Post Office sent them back to us for some reason!”

Add new postage and make sure you put the return adress where it belongs.
