    You would first write "PS". If you add additional information after a PS, then you write "PPS". I wouldn't have anything after that- PPPS is too much. (PPS is almost too much also!)

    example:

    This is the end of my letter.
    Sincerely,
    Me

    PS. Here is my PS message
    PPS. Here is my PPS message

    srgause is correct it's PS, PPS...PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPS. ;)
    In my experience, any current use of PPS, PPPS, etc. is usually made in a casual, humorous way, and that's how it should be taken, as well.

    Why add extra Ps and not Ss? Because P.S. stands for "post-script" or "post scriptum" (Latin), meaning "after the script", so the extra "P" in P.P.S. means "AFTER the after-script".

    Hey Emily, ^^
    I think if you have two notes; it's better to make 'em :
    P.S. (what you want to say1)
    P.P.S. (what you want to say2)

    If your notes are more than two; you can choose N.B. (NB is "Not Bad or Nota Bene (Latin for please note) - ) or - what I do - Use it this way:
    P.S.1 (what you want to say1)
    P.S.2 (what you want to say2)
    ...........................................
    P.S.7 .. etc

    Keep it up,
    Al Salam (gd bye in arabic) , ^^
