Wee Valentine’s finds: The tiniest card

Wsps.header

I do love a good gimmick, but the World’s Smallest Postal Service goes way beyond the novelty-factor with the most heart-stoppingly adorable and beautifully-crafted Valentine.

Handful

The San Francisco-based service is available online, and will transcribe up to 120 words of your (most romantic, heart-felt) prose into a teeny-tiny 1×1.5 inch letter. It will then be placed into an equally minuscule letter which is then hand-addressed, stamped and sealed with a miniature wax seal with your initial on it.

Magnified

To ensure your World’s Smallest Valentine doesn’t get lost in the post, it’s beautifully packaged – with a magnifying glass – in a larger envelope and sent to the address of your choice.
