L.W.A. Public Site
Here at the LWA we want to encourage everyone to write more letters.

Although we are a membership group, we have select L.W.A. items available to the public.

Members have access to a bevy of exclusive postal items & free downloads, so why not become one?

Perpetual Calendar

Remind yourself to write a letter everyday with the official LWA member perpetual calendar. We have two version available: one with just date and month cards and another with date, months, and days. It just depends on what kind of organizer you are. The version with just the dates and days includes the LWA crest.

This is some advanced paper sculpture, and we admit the directions can make one go crossed-eyed, so it may be best to just look at the diagram and construct from that.

8.5" x 11", 2 sheets, colored ink, 160 kb
Dates & Month

Days, month, and dates

Tools Needed:
• sharp scissors or a craft knife
• tape and/or glue
• cardstock paper or the ability to glue two pieces together.
