Underwater Post Office

at 6:08 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, What Were They Thinking

If you can dream it, someone has built it. 🙂 Who ever would think about creating an underwater post office? Looks beautiful though…

“Vanuatu Post has created the world’s only Underwater Post Office. Situated within a marine sanctuary, off Hideaway Island near Port Vila in Vanuatu, the Post Office can receive mail delivered in person if you are a visiting diver or snorkeller or sent via the Main Post Office to ensure all mail items receive the special cancellation from this unique underwater paradise.

What makes the postcard waterproof?

The postcards are a synthetic product called Syntek and the weight is 340gsm. So a plastic like product. The Syntec material is basically made of a mixture of clay (calcium carbonate) and polypropylene resin. It is non-toxic and has the look, feel and printability of paper, plus the durability of plastic. They are tough, waterproof, tear-resistant, impervious to grease, oils, chemicals and the elements. They can also withstand high temperatures and humidity.”
