Sarah of The Small Object recently received an amazing tiny letter from a customer. The letter, which came complete with a magnifying glass for reading, was from the World’s Smallest Postal Service.

The World’s Smallest Postal Service (WSPS) is a teeny tiny transcription service and roaming post office based in the San Francisco Bay Area and also available online.
Lea Redmond is the Postmaster, setting up her tiny mobile office in cafes and shops where passers-by can write a letter and have it turned into a “world’s smallest letter.” The letter is transcribed on a miniature desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s intial pressed into it, packaged up with a magnifying glass in a glassine envelope, and finished off with a large wax seal.

It’s hard to grasp how truly tiny these letters are. To get a better idea, watch the following video.
