Letter to fans when -182 was added

Recommended Posts

Just saw it posted up on reddit a few hours ago and wondering if this is new to surface ? Honestly in the 20 years I’ve been a fan I’ve literally never seen this letter. 
 

would prob be good bit of content to put on the twitter/Instagram. I bet mark would respond to this.

I posted it on our Twitter first, and someone jacked it and took credit on Reddit... (and went out of their way to find the one I didn’t watermark), it’s def a cool gem from Boxelder’s timeline.

i first scanned that letter in like 2002 or 2003, so it would appear to have been in the wild for quite some time.

the dates are typeset just the same in times new roman bold. the address is just a label. it is hand stamped.

I love that they literally mailed letters. Oh how the times have changed.

you signed up for mailing lists at shows. it was the only way to hear about a band and their shows besides local ads for venues. for blink during those days, i remember it was either anne hoppus or cameron at the merch table with the clipboard. i signed up more than once, because typically bands would send out a single mailing and then flush the list.

i didn't have my first email address until spring 1997 when i went to college. dial-up, oh yea!

glad to see you're enjoying the timeline, @Ry-Bread. thanks to @daveyjones for being the OG as usual

there's a couple more newsletter links in the timeline, that were added to imgur several years ago by a fan. not sure if they were davey's, but it's a couple more worthwhile additions
