Foodie Keepsake: USPS’ Celebrity Chefs Stamps

Just when I had almost given up on sending actual snail mail, the United State Postal Service announced the release of a pane of celebrity chefs forever stamps. The chefs honored are James Beard, Julia Child, Joyce Chen, Edna Lewis and Felipe Rojas-Lombardi.

 

Pictured below is the Beard stamp, which was the first design to be released. The Postal Service will reveal the other stamp designs through its social media outlets (follow USPS on twitter, facebook and pinterest) leading up to the first-day ceremony in Chicago, Illinois on September 26. The selvage area will have a photograph of a large plate set on a white linen tablecloth.

I can’t wait to be stamping those on my lovely Paper Source macarons stationery 😉 Do you still send snail mail often these days? Or only for special occasions like celebrations or the holidays?
