We are looking at the USPS 2017 Snowy Days Stamps going on sale nationwide October 4th. It is always fun to have some variety with the stamps we use with our letter writing, even seasonally.
USPS 2017 Snowy Days Stamps
The Forever stamps pricing continues to be 49 cents. There are four designs in a double-sided booklet of 20 stamps.
The U.S. Postal Service will be issuing the stamps in Brooklyn, NY on October 4, 2017.
In addition, the current Postal Bulletin shares a great background on the Snowy Days Stamps.
“With these stamps, the U.S. Postal Service showcases Ezra Jack Keats’ most beloved story, The Snowy Day. Written and illustrated by the celebrated children’s author, it was one of the first prominent 20th-century picture books featuring an African-American child. Each of the four new stamps in this 20-stamp booklet shows a different illustration of the main character, Peter, exploring and playing in his neighborhood while wearing his iconic red snowsuit. Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps. The images include: Peter forming a snowball, Peter sliding down a mountain of snow, Peter making a snow angel, and Peter leaving footprints in the snow.”
