What’s 22 + 29?

Um, those are the dates of the last two October Tuesdays (and the last two PUBLETTERS sessions this fall at TATTOOED MOM). And here’s  our little flyer for it.


We have had a banging little time at our “Reserved” table, stamping scores of post cards and letters to Frank Ocean, the unstoppable RBG, a certain Mr. Kaepernick, to the shy and retiring (at least where CHINA’s NBA cash is concerned) LeBron James and – as always – to friends and fam and of course, to Mom.

Join us from 5 to 8 pm the next two Tuesdays… and just maybe help us write to a Philly gal, TC, who has just gone over the rainbow and ended up, not in OZ, but in BOISE (founded 1863). She may need some cheering up, in the form of actual words written on real paper, and yes, we can loan you a pen.

It’s all FREE, thanks to the independently owned Trophy Bikes!, where cheerfully we fix flats, sell Bromptons and Surlys and (less-cheerfully) complain about brunch worshippers parking in the bike lane on weekends!

FOR NOVEMBER… we have unconfirmed reports that Publetters will be setting up our Samsonite “Slim-Line” briefcase in the only Philly tavern that has a tower named after it!  More details soon.


FOR RIGHT NOW! Please be aware that this very weekend (10/18-19) is CHARACTERS WELCOME, the 8TH ANNUAL international sticker art show, upstairs at Tmom’s. You should go, here’s the link. 

IN HONOR OF CW2019, we will have a ton (um, maybe 1/2 a pound) of sticker postcards and crayons/markers/etc.  so you can make your own mailable art–and then immediately mail it.   See you on South Street!
