john neal beads

this really is the last earthscape stamp. i was thinking about the envelope that alyce sent, but was too lazy to go find it or pull it up on a screen, so, this was as much as i could remember. wavy lines and dots. i know there were more details. but somehow, this seemed like enough. maybe it was because i can't really picture john being enthralled with a whole bunch of dangles and beads. this looks a little more like a circuit board. the trees on the stamp are just dots, so, it made sense to repeat dots.

the marker letters and details are zigs. the tiny details and writing are G-Tecs.
if you don't have the set of 10 colored G-Tec, available from john, i would have to say they are on my list of *must-haves* - if you are serious about your envelopes.


  1. Jean, I guess I have become a serious envelope writer and I need a set of G techs, but I can't find them on John Neal site. Could you supply more info. Smash

  2. the website is

    the item is

    i also like to have the .25 size in black for super tiny writing.

  3. This is quite a fun lettering design.
    Question: Is it not bothersome to post actual addresses?

  4. i am not sure what you mean. in the case of john, that is a business address and i think he is fine with people knowing about him and his business. i do not post any real addresses for people. i use fake addresses for anything i post that has a person's actual name. is that what you mean?

    or, on some of the mail, the people have moved, so, they no longer live at the address that is on the blog.
