stamps in season.

I picked up a copy of the 2014 Spring Edition Stamps in Season at my local Post Office the other day! It is the first edition of a new quarterly digest of the latest stamps from the U.S. Postal Service®.
The page spreads are nicely designed with photographs of the new stamps in their full sheets and in use on envelopes. It also contains tips for sending better mail! You can sign up online to receive this quarterly digest in the mail too if you don't have time to pick one up from your local Post Office.

Some of the tips included in this edition of Stamps in Season are:
• Wedding Mail Timeline and Checklist (Blog Post Coming Soon!)
• How to keep a Pen Pal
     1. Send a letter to a friend, asking him or her to write back
     2. Watch your mailbox
     3. When a letter arrives, write back within a week or two
     4. Repeat steps 2-4
• International Mail Tips
     • Use a Global Forever® rate stamp to send a First-Class 1-ounce letter to any country in the world
     • When writing the address, note that some countries place the postal code before the city or town, and include the country name in English and all caps on the last line by itself
