Pictorial postmarks are available only for the dates indicated, and requests must be postmarked no later than 30 days following the requested pictorial postmark date, no later than July 18, 2009.

All requests must include a stamped envelope or postcard bearing at least the minimum First-Class Mail postage. Items submitted for postmark may not include postage issued after the date of the requested postmark. Such items will be returned unserviced.

To obtain a postmark, affix stamps to any envelope or postcard of your choice, address the envelope or postcard to yourself or someone else, insert a card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness, and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope and address it to:

South Bend Station
424 South Michigan Street
South Bend, IN 46601

You can also send stamped envelopes and postcards without addresses for postmark, as long as you supply a larger envelope with adequate postage and your return address. After applying the pictorial postmark, the Postal Service will return the items (with or without addresses) under addressed protective cover.

Happy collecting!

  1. I received back the 2 covers I submitted and they look fantastic. This postmark would be my 3rd with a Lincoln Highway theme. If anyone has any information regarding previous pictorial postmarks I would be interested. I also have postmark collections for Route 66 and the National Highway.
