Anything is better than the nasty scribbles.
I don't agree with 'anything better': a regular postmark which is too inky is a horror for me, too. And some of the not-too-inky USPS seasons greetings postmarks I received showed a picture which totally was filled with ink, so that I couldn't see the image of the stamp anymore... A thin scribble which is put carefully so that the image keeps well, I think less bad than the ink-wells some postmarks provide..
Oh my - that's an odd comment above mine.To be honest, I haven't paid much attention to postmarks. Now I will. Those scribbles are awful.
I deleted it. Sometimes some bots find the blogs, too :|Some cancellations (not these!) deserve attention, as they are beautiful. Specially pictorial postmarks, or slogans from Royal Mail...Thanks for your visit! :)
Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
