These adorable stamps are sure to add a little whimsy to your Valentines, and are also great for use on letters and cards of the year,” the USPS said in a press release.
Animal lovers can choose between a puppy or a kitten leaning on a big red heart to send mail to their loved ones.
USPS held a dedication ceremony on January 19 at 11:00 am in an APA flysheet area! Parking spot. The popular non-profit Austin was chosen by the USPS for the unveiling because of the theme of the stamps.
