Amid a sea of smiles, the U.S. Postal Service celebrated the issuance of 125 million new stamps today featuring popular Disney/Pixar characters. The Mail a Smile Forever stamps official First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony took place at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
The United States Postal Service today announced its commemorative stamp program for 2011 and it includes some very familiar faces, fictional and not, including friends from several Disney/Pixar films.
The Send a Hello stamps are a natural outgrowth of the Art of Disney stamp series issued between 2004 and 2008. Originally intended as a series of three annual issuances depicting friendship, celebration, and romance, the Art of Disney stamps proved so popular that the Postal Service expanded the series to include issuances in 2007 and 2008 to celebrate imagination and magic. The Send a Hello series is meant to encourage people to connect with their loved ones via the United States Postal Service.
