mystery product revealed
Designed to carry the wedding theme into wedding correspondence such as invitations and RSVP cards, the United States Postal Service (USPS) recently introduced the Wedding Rings 44-cent first-class stamp. MACtac, Stow, Ohio, supplied the pressure-sensitive adhesive label materials for the 300 million stamps printed.
Also available through USPS, the Wedding Rings stamp has a partner two-ounce, 61-cent Wedding Cake first-class stamp, which is intended for heavier invitations.
"Although wedding planning is often associated with stress and months of preparation, the anticipated result is a beautiful day and cherished memories that mark the beginning of a new and happy life," said Allison Hazel, marketing manager, MACtac Printing Products. "Supplying the labelstock for the Wedding Rings stamp allows MACtac to provide a beautiful contribution to the special day of the couples, hopefully easing one aspect of the planning process."
The Wedding Rings stamp features a photograph of two seemingly intertwined golden wedding bands displayed on a white pillow with a white, silk ribbon strung through them in unity.
The Wedding Rings stamp is currently available online at www.usps.com/shop, by phone at (800) STAMP-24 and at local post offices.
MACtac has been a qualified supplier for USPS stamps for more than five years, providing materials for a number of pressure-sensitive stamps, including: "Star Wars," "Forever," "Flags of Our Nation" and "Olympic Games."
