A NAMW cover with standard parallelograms border, except for the variations that occur at the center of each edge and in each corner where the parallelograms meet. The same border design is on the reverse.

Another NAMW cover with an airmail border of tradition parallelograms, but limited to the left two-thirds of the envelope.

Traditional parallelograms on two edges of the envelope with variations of blue vertical and red diagonal lines making up the parallelograms.

The design continues on the reverse minus the the narrow parallel solid red and blue bars on the obverse.

A first-flight cover with traditional parallelograms separated top and bottom by an "Air Mail" and with parallel "Via Air Mail" in different languages along all sides. The parallelograms are also on the reverse, but not the airmail phrases.

Moving to what I call a "partial" airmail designation on the envelope. That is, there is no airmail designation along the edges of the cover, but with just a small area having a design that indicates airmail service, in this case a a group of aircraft in the lower left and the red & blue lines in the lower right.

The apparent connection of two terminals in the lower left of this cover are reminiscent of the airmail service designations on some Milton Mauck covers, but I have no evidence that he is the designer.

A Washington Bicentennial cover that I have collected for its different, partial airmail border. On the reverse is a printed note identifying the envelope as "Miller Aero Print Design No. 1."

A couple more covers with partial airmail service designations. The cachets, the stamps, and addresses tend to lessen the prominence of these smaller designators.

A non-philatelic cover from the WW II period with a small airmail service designation in the upper left on stationery provided by a Pesi-Cola Center for Service Men and Women as noted the reverse.

Two chain-like red lines are the only printed airmail service designation on this envelope. The sender apparently thought they, plus the 6 cents airmail stamp, were not enough for postal clerks to recognize the letter as airmail and added a Via Air Mail label for good measure.

This cover has an attractive hand-drawn airmail service designator on the right of the address, along with frames for the stamps and outlining of the address. Perhaps Clarence B.Myers was the artist, I don't know.
