The Sharks Stamps feature “… five species that inhabit American waters — the mako, thresher, great white, hammerhead and whale shark.”

If your local Post Office does not have them yet, the Sharks Forever stamps can be ordered online at the USPS website.

It was just a year ago the USPS issued their Pets Forever stamps.

Including these stamps with our summer letter writing I can envision fast forward to a letter being brought along to the beach, reminding me to ask – Let me know if you plan to go into the water! 

Anchors Aweigh,
