Stamped, Sealed, Delivered !

I wanted the post title to look like this - "Signed Stamped, Sealed, Delivered!" as a spin off of Stevie Wonder's song, but Blogger doesn't allow strikethroughs in the title. Lame!

Moving on. Ever since wedding planning resulted in finding THE perfect stamp to accompany our wedding invites' journey to our guests' mailboxes, I've been slightly obssessed with periodically checking on the USPS' website for new stamp releases. For example, when the Evergreen Forever stamps were released, I had to make sure all mail correspondence in November, December, and January (aka wedding Thank You letters) doned these stamps.


When I went to the post office to purchase more, the USPS personnel informed me they were out and will not be producing them anymore* since the holidays are over. Until this day, I don't know why I did, but I gasped in sadness at the news. I immediately called the hubby to check the post office near our shop on the availability of these beauties. His response, "They got 'em here. How many you want?" My response, "LOTS!". He purchased 15 of the 20 stamp sheets. Anyone in need of an Evergreen Forever stamp because I totally got you on this one!

On May 23, 2011, USPS will release the Garden of Love Forever stamps, and they're oh so pretty! And that's coming from non-girly girl me! Yikes!!

I feel like I should rush out to the post office on May 23rd and purchase these eye candy like it's the new iPad 2 or something. I know, I know, I know. I need to display some self control on the amount purchased if I do purchase the Garden of Love Forever stamps. Aren't they pretty though?

Here are some other fun new release postages:

Perfect for a wedding invite!


Go Green!

I'm glad USPS is still coming out with fun new postages despite heavier utilization and reliance on e-communication. Do you have thing for postage or is it just me? 

*USPS still sells the Evergreen Forever stamps, but I digress! I see you laughing at me, that's not very nice of you. at. all! At least I'll always have a stamp readily available that's of correct postage - pfttt! And no, I'm not 5 years old.


  1. Oh, those Garden of Love Forever stamps are so pretty!

  2. I too am obsessed with stamps! I loved when the Postal Service came out with the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet stamps!

    Those Garden of Love stamps are AMAZING!
