New site lets you put God on your postage

This site is the gateway to a whole new way of communicating what is deepest in your heart when you send a letter.  As personal as a nameplate on your desk, custom license plate, or insignia on your personal checks and credit cards, Holy Postage is a way of sharing your faith with those with whom you communicate by mail.

As Richard Nixon would put it: Allow me to say this about that …

  • “As personal as a nameplate on your desk”? Paul Fussell, in his wonderful book Class, wrote that nameplates are for people who aren’t sure they should have desks.
  • What is deepest in my heart when I send a letter is generally, “Why can’t I do this by email?”
  • Didn’t Robin use the phrase “Holy Postage” once?

We have structured the site such that you can get right to the specific area of particular interest to you.  We offer a variety of images for those of the Christian faith.  There is also beautiful artwork and imagery to inspire those across all faiths.

The meaning of “all” here is much the same as when it is used by Sam The Eagle in Muppetvison 3D:

Kermit the Frog: We will also see a rousing finale from Sam the Eagle. What’s it called, Sam?
Sam the Eagle: It’s called “A Salute to All Nations, But Mostly America”.

And indeed there is some imagery that is Jewish and some that is “Arabic” — which in this case means Christian but with a message printed in Arabic. All people depicted are the palest Caucasian.

Note well that having The Alpha & The Omega, The Holy Undefinable Everything, The Dude, Big Guy (or Gal) and/or The Terrifying Void on your snail mail neither makes it more likely to arrive or even that your stamps will get to you in a timely manner. From the site’s FAQ:

How long will it take to receive my stamps once I place my order?

At this time, sheets of stamps are being custom printed by our printer once their minimums have been met. Your order will be shipped to you as soon as we receive it here at the offices of Holy Postage.  We will do everything possible to minimize the delay between the time you place your order and the time you receive it.  Please allow up to weeks following receipt of your order by us for your Holy Postage to arrive at your location.

The absence of a specific number of weeks is the most wonderful typo I’ve seen in a while.
