Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone knows any information about sending in inauguration covers for a commemorative postmark. I've been periodically checking the Postal Bulletin and searching online and can't find anything for this year. With 10 days to go before the ceremony, I'm a bit surprised there isn't anything available yet.

Also, what size envelope do people usually make collectible covers with? Is there any sort of standard?

Thanks in advance for any and all help :)

I am very interested in what people respond with for cover size. I have used 5"x7" and standard business sized envelopes fo ray custom covers. My philosophy is to follow your own rules and there is no official standard for these sort of things.

My custom covers, with some new additions from Dec 2020:

Not sure if it affects inauguration cancellations or not.

John, your right, Sorry, I should have noted that it says the 20th, 2017. Ugggh!
Back to the search.

Edit: If there is a special cancel to be had, it probably will be obtainable from the same post office listed in the above link anyway.

Mike

As noted above in the link I provided that Post Office will be closed.

They have since posted instructions for inauguration covers at Linns. They are on Virtual Stamp Club also. I guess so far they have just been sent to registered cover servicers.

I assume they will be in the next Postal Bulletin but who knows?
