Netflix Envelope Art

As someone who rarely takes advantage of the DVD-by-mail portion of my Netflix subscription, it seems I have been really missing out on one thing that will never be replaced by the online experience: creating Netflix envelope art.

Thankfully Doodlers Anonymous has drawn my attention to this apparently prevalent habit:

"Admit it, you've done it. You've taken a Sharpie to a Netflix envelope and doodled the heck out of it. Not just once, but a multitude of times. You've then imagined the expression of the postal worker as the envelope passed through their hands, all with a wide grin on your face."

Whether you use your envelope art to pass judgment on the movie within:

Or get inventive in other ways:

...there is a place for you to show off the little red masterpieces you’ve bid farewell to at the mailbox.
