How uncanny that your post appeared today. My Christmas cards are all ready to go to two different Post Offices: Bethlehem, KY and Anchorage, AK and I'm in the midst of packaging them up to mail today. The USPS blog "Stamp of Approval" gave the addresses for both places. The Anchorage, AK will have a 'North Pole' postmark. Thanks for the list of other places too.

That envelope looks familiar somehow... ;)

Amazing, I just finished my cards & was looking for Christmas postmarks. Now, I Ned to find the addresses for the post offices.
THANK YOU I have been doing this for 33 years & more people look for the zips before the cards.


would you be able to do this with any post office from any town?

As far as I can tell, yes!
