Disney/Pixar Pals to Grace United States Postage Stamps in 2011

United States Postage Stamps for 2011The 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.

Muppets Make Mailings Merrier in December

USPS Muppets Postmark

NEW YORK, Dec. 1  — What do the U.S. Postal Service, the Muppets and Santa Claus have in common? Neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night will keep them from delivering dreams this holiday season.

Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear joined Postmaster General John E. Potter today at the historic James A. Farley Post Office lobby in New York City to kick off the holiday mailing season and the Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program.

“The holiday season isn’t just the busiest time of the year for the Postal Service — it’s our best time of year,” said Potter. “For nearly 100 years, the Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program has made dreams come true for those in need. This is a time to celebrate how postal employees, charitable organizations and businesses have made a difference in the lives of children coast to coast.”

“We’re excited to be helping the Postal Service make the holiday special for kids across the country. It’s the perfect way to celebrate,” said Kermit the Frog. A postmark of Kermit the Frog will appear in the upper right-hand corner of holiday cards and letters mailed throughout the month of December.

“Helping Santa Claus is always a good idea, especially at this time of year,” added Fozzie Bear, who saluted the Postal Service for 234 years of delivering holiday cheer — and saluted Santa just to be on the safe side.
