Reproduction Airgraph Letter

Although American V-Mail was an absolutely ingenious invention, it was a copy of the English Airgraph. Soldiers could stay in touch with their loved ones by writing on specially provided forms, which were photographed onto microfilm, transported overseas in small, inexpensive parcels, then enlarged onto photographic paper and mailed to their destinations.

If you know a Commonwealth reenactor that would like a reproduction Airgraph that looked like it was mailed from home or the front, this would be a great gift! With this package, you can send me a letter by e-mail; I will convert it using a simulated handwritten font and paste it into my Airgraphl template, distress it to give it a photographed look, and print it onto a quality matte finish photographic paper. Or you can send me an illustration; I'll distress it to make it look like it was photographed, and include it along with any brief message you want. I'll even fold, seal, and stamp it just like an original (many Airgraphs were folded and glued so that only the address appeared at the top and sent without an envelope!) Includes censor stamps (RAF, Royal Army, or Royal Navy - please indicate). A real work of art and at this price, quite the bargain!
