...and the spangram was SNAILMAIL.

Hi Strands fans. A pleasingly taxing puzzle this morning. It's not that the theme was especially cryptic, but some of the answers were neatly hidden, making it an enjoyable challenge. 

From the moment I read "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" I assumed it was about postal deliveries, and so it proved to be. I quickly spotted PACKAGE spelled out downwards along the right-hand side, and BILL immediately underneath it. 

The next one took me a while, as I was obsessed with trying to make 'envelope' near the top (you can get as far as 'envel', but no further). I was further delayed when I thought the stray 'Z' in the bottom left corner might be to do with 'zipcodes'. 

But then I realized it was MAGAZINE and normal service  was resumed. This created a clear path to spell POSTCARD backwards and I followed that up by grabbing LETTER, snaked around itself in the top right-hand corner. 

It was only then that I got the spangram. I'd already tried connectinng MAIL, but then realized it was only half of the word. I added SNAIL to the front to make SNAILMAIL and connect the two sides of the board. 

The last one took me a while. For some reason, I couldn't decode the anagram 'TIIEVN'... but I got there in the end: INVITE!
