Furthermore, it is great reading the process for requesting by mail first-day-of-issue (FDOI) postmark

Before sharing the excerpt, I’m mentioning reading it finds me thinking I’m going to have to check with my stamp club buddies – I was thinking the usual timeline is 30 days for requesting – loving seeing it is 120 days for the Enjoy the Great Outdoors stamps.

Customers have 120 days to obtain the first-day-of-issue postmark by mail. They may purchase new stamps at their local Post Office™ or at The Postal Store® website at usps.com/shop. They must affix the stamps to envelopes of their choice, address the envelopes (to themselves or others), and place them in a larger envelope addressed to:
