Postal Etiquettes or Postal Labels are (as far as I know) labels supplied by a post office to indicate the special way that the piece of mail with such a label attached is to treated.

Airmail, Registration, Parcel Post and others.

These can also be considered Ciderellas.

Here are a couple I received recently (Jan 2011) from Great Britain (Royal Mail).
Airmail and Small Packets:


I am not sure if a customs declaration form in the form of a label is considered a postal label (well, it is a label) or not, strictly speaking. On the same package as those above:


And, I know it's not a postal label, but I like it, a return address label in the colours of eBay (neat but hard to read!):


Some links to start you off:

And for those who like addressing envelopes and such with an artistic flair:

I've got some more but not many.
Anyone else have any?

Yes, I should look for that pic Rod posted.

Rod, by the way, did you ever get that envelope I mailed to your old address with etiquettes?

Yes I did Puzzler,
thank you very much, and may I apologise
if I had not conveyed receipt.

These are very dear to my collecting,
I just love the ephemeral junk.

Yes I take my hat off to you Michael,
you have some really beautiful junk.

I remember on another forum, when I discovered you,
I thought Wow! another person who likes the junky stuff.
It was hard to believe.
But sadly however, for really bad junk,
I pip you at the post :)
I thought I was the only one to collect printed glassine
but again, I am wrong.

BTW Your first image is not showing.

Oh my, Rod - I recall winning an eBay auction of etiquette kiloware on your behalf this summer. I don't recall where I stashed the package! It's undoubtedly around somewhere, I'll find the shovel and flashlight and will start digging.

Yes..didn't you feel the pins Ryan

Look, I knew you wouldn't have done it on purpose,
and they may have been lost in the mail,
and I have been guilty of the same thing in
the past. It's human.
As nerdy as stamp collecting is, I reckon it can be
fast paced when one is trading, lots of things to remember,
things to do.
They are only little bits of paper after all

Nice contribution Puzz,
I think (02-12) indicates the release date (dec 2002)
so they have been in service a while.
