Are you getting married in 2013? Today USPS reissued the Wedding Cake stamp just for you! The 66-cent denomination accommodates the one-cent price change that goes into effect on January 27. The stamp was unveiled during the American Philatelic Society’s AmeriStamp Expo in Louisville, Kentucky.
First introduced in 2009 and sold at the two-ounce rate, the Wedding Cake stamp accommodates the heavier weight of an invitation, as well as other mailings such as oversize cards or small gifts that require extra postage. The stamp art features a photograph of a three-tier wedding cake topped with white flowers that was created and designed by pastry chef Peter Brett of Washington, D.C.
If you would like to obtain the first-day-of-issue postmark by mail, affix the Wedding Cake stamps to envelopes of your choice, address the envelopes, and place them in a larger envelope addressed to:
Wedding Cake Stamp
U.S. Postal Service
4500 Annshire Ave.
Louisville, KY 40213
After applying the first-day-of-issue postmark, USPS will return the envelopes through the mail. There is no charge for the postmark. All orders must be postmarked by March 18, 2013.
