Merry Christmas From Your Postman Tony
A bundle of asking, created without computer printers or risograph machines.
Christmas is probably the best time of the year for rubber stamp makers, who create the tools for mechanical gift envelope reproduction used by our service providers and bearers of bills. Thousands of small white envelopes stamped with greetings are handed out on regular delivery routes and, hopfeully, handed back with a bit of money.
Some analogue clipart.
Probably a shared greeting stamp and a small individual name stamp.
