COVID Card #80

July 24, 2020 | 0 comments

In 2005, the USPS approved vendors to sell customized stamps. People could register with the vendors, upload their own photos or designs, and print customized postage. Alas, don’t get your hopes up, Steve Mitchell (probably don’t bother Googling him — or do just for fun to see what you come up with — he’s a friend who has mentioned a couple of times that COVID cards would make great stamps), the USPS has ended this program.

COVID Card #80 recognizes the short-lived (15 years, I think) custom stamp program.

Cards 1-100

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
