Winter Fun and Global Wreath Forever Stamps from USPS Celebrate Holiday Mailings
The US Postal Service is helping customers prepare for the holiday season by dedicating festive domestic and international Forever stamps. A first-day-of-issue ceremony for the Winter Fun domestic stamps and the Global Holiday: Silver Bells Wreath International stamp was held at the American Stamp Dealers Association National Postage Stamp Show 2014.
Celebrate the season with this Global Holiday: Silver Bells Wreath Digital Color Postmark First Day Cover. Part of the Global Holiday series, the stamp art features a classic wreath with a twist - a circle of densely packed silver bells topped with a bright red bow and set against a deep green background.
The color postmark features the words “Silver Bells Wreath” in red between the words “Global” and “First Day of Issue,” which form a circle to mirror the wreath’s shape. Red holly and green branches accent the design and accompany the date and location of stamp issuance: October 23, 2014, New York, NY 10199.
Celebrate snowy days spent outdoors with this new set of four Winter Fun Digital Color Postmark First Day Covers. The stamp art features four playful designs of the season’s most enjoyable activities -ice-skating, making snow angels, building snowmen, and bird-watching.
