I get a lot of email and pitches from companies for stories and such, but when this one came across my desk this morning, I just had to share it – probably, because it is fun, not expected and I know sports enthusiasts will like it.
The U.S. Postal Service has launched a new set of Forever stamps, the first-of-its-kind, with the look —and feel —of balls used in eight popular sports.
The Have a Ball! Forever stamps depict balls used in baseball, basketball, football, golf, kickball, soccer, tennis and volleyball.
A special coating applied to selected areas of the circular stamps during the printing process gives them a texture that mimics the feel of:
- a baseball’s stitching;
- a golf ball’s dimples;
- a tennis ball’s seams;
- a soccer ball or volleyball’s textured panels; and,
- the different raised patterns of a football, basketball and kickball.
For more information or to order, visit the Postal Store® at www.usps.com or call 800-STAMP-24.
How fun are these – whether you are a sports enthusiast or stamp collector, I just had to share these with you!
