Description:

This Category is basically for homemade mailboxes, they may be funny or unique but not commercially available even tho they might have been modified to give them a somewhat different appearance. If they are regular mailboxes that have been substantially modified to give them a "Unique" individual look they might also be accepted. If in doubt an "Officer Review" vote will be called. MAILBOXES ONLY! NO POSTS OR SUPPORTS!
Expanded Description:

Mailboxes may be in the shape of an automobile, a tractor, an animal or any other unusual design.
They can be rural, residential or business mailboxes. Let's see what unique and interesting mailboxes are out there.


The Category has been broadened to include regular mailboxes that have been substantially modified to give them that handmade appearance. Below some examples that are marginally acceptable.



Plastic (or vinyl) mailboxes that resemble barns, fish or others that you can buy at Kmart will not be accepted.
  • The following images show mailboxes that are NOT unique



  • - -> Other production boxes here!
    <----->






    NO production mailboxes from showrooms, workshops or any place where they are being sold. They have to be permanently mounted where actual co-ordinates can be taken.
  • Instructions for Posting a Themed Homemade Mailboxes Waymark:
    Just go out there find a funny mailbox take a very good picture of the box
    * Please NO out-of-the-car-window or small cellphone photos.
    If you like, you can include yourself in the picture with the mailbox.
  • A minimum of 2 photographs are required: 1 close-up and one of the general area.
    * In case of different designs, the opposing view should also be submitted.


    No matter how unique the pole is, it's about the mailbox! If it's an ordinary mailbox attached to a very strange pole please do not log the pole as a Waymark. Also please do not submit any Wide Mouth Bass,Fishing Lure, Pelican, Corn or Red Barn mailboxes. They are not unique and there are plenty of them out there.

    NO! painted mailboxes as they can be submitted at Painted Mailboxes
    Read the "Category Description" page before submitting your Waymark page.
