The World's Smallest Post Service Debuts @ Sweet Adeline


The World’s Smallest Post Service Debuts at Sweet Adeline

By  | 

The World’s Smallest Post Service made its debut last Saturday at Sweet Adeline Bakeshop in Oakland. And those cookie-eaters sure put me to work!

For seven hours people wrote letters and I transcribed them with a teeny tiny pen onto teeny tiny stationery. Each tiny letter was then sealed with wax bearing the initial of the sender (old letterpress type) and packaged up with a magnifying glass. To date, the WSPS has transcribed 30 “World’s Smallest Letters.” Keep an eye on this blog for future WSPS events.

Thanks for the good cheer, Sweet Adeline! You can also order teeny tiny letters, cards, and packages on my website:

UPDATE 4/15/16: To date the WSPS has made and sent over 50,000 tiny letters, cards, and packages to recipients around the world.

She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.
