June 29, 2024 | Irvine, CA | Postal Worker Appreciation Day | Postmark Posse

Hey there! If there are any cards leftover at the end of the event, I could try to mail you some! (It’s tricky to make sure everyone who attends has cards on the day of the meetup.)

Will it be possible, if we prepay for our cards, to have them mailed to us before the event?

Thanks!

I look forward to joining this meetup and meeting new postcrossers and seeing friends there.

Hi everyone :wave:t2: this will be my first meetup. I’m excited to see what it’s all about and meet some faces behind the cards. I love receiving the meetup cards filled up with username stamps on them!

@SonaliS Thank you! Looking forward to folks making the journey to join us in OC! :smile:

@suegathman we’d be cutting it close on the delivery depending on when they arrive from the print shop, so it’s safest to say to expect them at the event! :sparkles:

@pyrexcollector Looking forward to having you at the event!

@CoffeeMomster Excited for your first meetup! Yes, it’s always nice to finally put a face to the names :smile:

For those that have been sending payment for reserves, I’ll be making a list of all the updates soon! :muscle:t5:

This will be my second meetup - as a newbie let me tell you the first one was overwhelming and overstimulating in the best possible way. To meet so many people who also geek out about stationery and creative endeavors was just so cool.

This is what I learned:

  1. My stamp was too big :laughing: (not a requirement but it helps!)
  2. People will drive incredible distances.
  3. Everyone was SO nice and helpful.
  4. The freebie table was like being a kid in a candy store!
  5. Postcrossing is wonderful but to meet people IRL really adds something special.

Can’t wait to meet everyone - the location is beautiful!

@goldenstatepc Is there anything I should bring? Or that you wish you would have thought to bring?

Hmmm… no I don’t think so. Maybe some fun pens or stickers for signing cards, any extra cards you don’t mind donating to the freebie pile…

Some people had a separate small journal that they would ask people to stamp or sign, as a way of remembering each meetup — which I LOVED.
