I'm with you -- the pointsettia and menorah stamps are really great. And, yeah, the Santa stamps are going to be on the odd little holiday gnome postcards we picked up a few months ago. (Sidenote: I wish USPS would come out with a larger variety of postcard stamps.)


Why is the word "forever" crossed out?

Thats because these are reproductions. Any U.S.P.S. stamp reproductions have the denomination struck out like that. They dont want people just printing off their own counterfeit stamps.

I'll be stocking up on the international poinsettia stamp and using it for years to come. Agree the menorah is lovely and may be my winter stamp this year.


I just mailed something today with the international succulent stamp, so I like the poinsettia very much. The menorah is beautiful as well because it has a very judaica art feel to it. It would have been nice to have some diversity in the santas and not have them all be white. Same goes for the strawberry blond Jesus :)
