U S Postal Service New Stamps Needed
Contest Directions: Whom would you put on a stamp? Charlie Sheen? Lady Gaga? Yourself? Hoping to boost sagging revenue, the U.S. Postal Service abandoned on Monday its long-standing rule that stamps cannot feature people who are still alive and is asking the public for suggestions. The post office is inviting suggestions through Facebook, Twitter, a website and by mail to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, c/o Stamp Development, Room 3300, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20260-3501.
Let's help the U.S. Postal Service find new stamp designs that may (or may not) help them boost their sagging revenue. Let's show what new stamps may (or may not) appeal to the public.
Many thanks to GarRobMil for the contest concept.
