Tellinga (like telling a story) creates handcrafted mail art for your prison pen pal. Mail art, also known as postal art, is an artistic movement centered on sending artwork through the postal service. Premium 5" x 7" postcards are hand-drawn by a Tellinga artist and placed in a brown grocery bag envelope with the customer's address used as the return address. Before your card is shipped to your inmate pen pal, a charity stamp and custom wax seal are applied. Afterward, your story's digital copies are sent to your email to share online with family and friends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight breast cancer, Alzheimer's, and PTSD. Send a letter to an inmate today!
