Wonder if any of you had ever heard of this? I got a letter from a guy that has an ad on here and has contributed some artwork to our site. Wanted to give me a heads up that I could save on postage in the U.S.. "I don't know if you are aware but you can mail all your letters free of charge if you write "Frank" on the outside of the envelope instead of using a stamp. It's an official way to send mail without charge."
This is what I found - Free Frank - the right to send mail without payment of postage. Usually indicated by a signature where a stamp is usually affixed. This privilege has been extended to various individuals at different times, including government officials and military personnel.
I've never ever received mail marked "Frank" so I guess it's not worth the risk claiming to be government or military to save a few bucks.

It`d be OK if the mail got thru. Very OK!! ;D I agree tho, is it worth the risk of the letter not getting there? It sounds too good to be true. I would think there`d need to be some kind of offical approval to do it.
