World's Smallest Post Service

Leafcutter Designs - World's Smallest Post Service

The WSPS began in 2008 as a quirky little social art project. Postmaster Lea Redmond sets up her tiny roaming office in cafes and shops in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and offers a teeny tiny letter transcription service to passers-by. At these appearances the letters are transcribed by hand on a miniature, wooden roll-top desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender's initial pressed into it, and packaged up with a magnifying glass.
The video on the site shows how they started, but it looks like this online order service is not actually handwritten. Still, it's neat. I'm having a hard time thinking of the right occasion though. Maybe a letter to my daughter from the tiny frog she found yesterday ...
