Since 1986, the films of Pixar Animation Studios have stretched the boundaries of our imagination with stories about unlikely heroes who explore the bonds of friendship and family. Now some of those heroes are the subjects of colorful new Send a Hello (Forever®) stamps that encourage people to connect with loved ones through the mail.
These new stamps capture the delight of finding 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 stamp art featuring popular characters:
– Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars (2006)
– Remy the rat and Linguini from Ratatouille (2007)
– Buzz Lightyear and two of the green, three-eyed aliens from Toy Story (1995)
– Carl Fredricksen and Dug from Up (2009)
– the robot WALL•E from WALL•E (2008).
The “Send a Hello” stamps are being issued as Forever stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
