Pixar Stamps and Letter Writing Campaign

Even before Claire McCaskill’s recommendation for the U. S. Postal Service to implement a letter-writing campaign, the USPS issued the “Send a Hello” Pixar stamps and coupled the stamps with language encouraging folks to send more mail.

The back of the stamp pane says:

Think of your delight when you find a letter, greeting card, or package waiting in your mailbox.  It puts a shine on the rest of the day–even before you’ve opened it. Despite all the ways we communicate with friends and family today, there’s still nothing as personal as knowing someone took time to choose a card…write a letter…wrap a package…and even choose a special stamp simply to “Send a Hello.”

The stamps feature characters from five Disney-Pixar movies: Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars; Remy and Linguini from Ratatouille; Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story; Carl and Dug from Up; and the robot Wall-E.

Use them to send a hello to someone in your life.  These seem particularly suited to share with the kids in your life.  Instill a love of letter writing in them early!

    I’d forgotten all about these stamps! I’ll have to get some. My grandson loves the movie Up. I bet he would love to get that stamp on some mail. Thanks for the reminder.
