The USPS will be selling the new Pets Forever Stamps debut today August 2nd. See if you can quickly determine which is your favorite.
The stamps are being issued in booklet of 20 Forever stamps with photos of the 20 pets. There are 20 existing photographs of different animals taken against white backgrounds by Eric Isselée for the stamp art as shown upper left for Pets stamps.
This is the list by groups: puppies, betta fish, iguanas, hamsters, goldfish, parrots, guinea pigs, tortoises, rabbits, kittens, corn snakes, mice, hermit crabs, chinchillas, gerbils, dogs, parakeets, horses, cats, and geckos. There is a “First-Day-of-Issue ceremony will take place Tuesday, August 2, at 1 p.m. PT, at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, in conjunction with the SuperZoo National Pet Retailer Trade Show.”
“The Pets Forever® stamps feature photographs of 20 favorite pets. These stamp subjects came from of the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) in response to the public’s love of pet-related stamps. Existing photos from photographer Eric Isselée (who specializes in photos with white backgrounds) were selected and licensed to make these beautiful stamps.”
Each photograph represents a beloved animal from their groups: puppies, betta fish, iguanas, hamsters, goldfish, parrots, guinea pigs, tortoises, rabbits, kittens, corn snakes, mice, hermit crabs, chinchillas, gerbils, dogs, parakeets, horses, cats, and geckos.
Here’s to picking up some of these entries and adding some kind of entry door. It looks highly organized!
