You’re going to LOVE this: the USPS responds to demand for Love Ribbons stamps!
Remember yesterday when I complained that the USPS wasn’t going to release the brand-new 2012 Love Ribbons stamp until February 14, Valentine’s Day (too late to mail Valentine’s Day cards)?
Well, 3500 people read that post, and maybe someone at USPS did, too. And guess what! They listened! Well, maybe not to me 🙂 specifically. I am sure it was not because of my blog post. But they did listen to me and other consumers who were clamoring for the new stamp. And, for the first time in its history, the USPS is going to make a stamp available for sale before it’s officially dedicated.
A wise PR AND marketing move, USPS! Kudos to you!
The new Love Ribbons Forever Stamp is on sale today at usps.com and by phone at 800-782-6724. Stamps are arriving in Post Offices over the next few days and will be sold as soon as they are available.
“We are excited to bring this colorful new stamp to our customers in time for them to mail their Valentine’s Day greeting cards and letters,” said Stamp Services Manager, Stephen Kearney. “We will continue selling the Garden of Love stamps too.”
The official dedication ceremony for Love Ribbons will be held Feb. 14 in Colorado Springs, CO.
I can’t wait. I just bought my Valentines last night and I will definitely be sending them with this gorgeous, new stamp. Thank you, USPS!
