Today 9 October is World Post Day. It marks the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Post Union in Berne Switzerland on 9 October 1874. The purpose of the day is to create awareness of the role and importance of the postal sector to economic development. The day is not just for philatelists. It’s a day to write a handwritten note to someone special. I say snail mail is the new black which is why I hunted down an airmail template with a cool create your own stamp option.
