Greetings from the Intergalactic Postal Works (IGPW) council!
We may sometimes lose your mail, but we will never lose our optimism.

We are trying to use the new, innovative communications technology. But we have no money, so we decided to use crowdfunding. By redistributing undelivered mail which was lost too far away from its destination to be financially feasible to deliver, we get two birds with one stone! Be part of the next big thing in space-based postal services. Subscribe today!

The Lost Mail Redistribution Program (LMRP) will run until 2/2/2020, and - being in the pilot phase - only support up to 222 lost mail subscribers, and up to 200 digital edition subscribers. Subscribers can expect an extra-exciting double mailing when they sign up during the first month of operation, April 2018. Each of the following months will be a single mailing of rewards according to the following tiers:

  • $1/month (200 available) - digital version of monthly postcard, and access to blog posts
  • $15/month (172 available) - all $1 rewards, plus physical postcard with handwritten message mailed to you each month, and access to blog posts; optionally, one additional blank postcard for fulfillment of your earthly communication needs with an intergalactic stamp (not that it has any value in your humble Terran existence, of course)
  • $30/month (50 available) - all $15 rewards, plus one mystery bonus item each month

"Mystery bonus item? Sign me up!"
Yes, that's exactly what we want to hear! Each monthly installment of the $30 reward tier will involve one mystery bonus item, a completely different one each month. The Intergalactic Postal Works has accumulated much space communications detritus that should definitely inspire the lost mail connoisseur:

  • stickers, pins, or patches with the IGPW logo
  • IGPW stationery, shipping tape, rare stamps, and other splendid postage paraphernalia
  • printed guides, maps, illustrations associated with the location to which that month's lost mail did not, sadly, make it
  • Intergalactic junk mail featuring best-selling products you've never heard of
  • Lost Mail desktop wallpaper

When can I expect my rewards?
On the 15th of each month, we will distribute the physical rewards. The physical rewards will be propagated from our good warehouse to your door through a series of respectable bureaucracies. Hopefully, this journey has better luck than the prior attempts to distribute that particular mail, but it might still take a few days to arrive depending on where on this conveniently small planet the deliveries are bound. To avoid spoilers, the digital rewards will be posted two weeks after the physical rewards are mailed out.

Who is doing this?
Created and by some low-level interns at IGPW: Kit Kuksenok (narrative and illustration), Cora Lee (visual design and art direction), and Victoria Downing (digital scene building). Lost Mail is a Trouble Book Club experiment.

Will we break the fourth wall?
No, our headquarters are on a space station. Breaking the fourth wall would be irresponsible. All of our walls keep the space out.
