The USPS is now honoring living people on postage stamps — who do you want to stick on your next letter?
Beginning next year, Americans will get to see some of their favorite (and not-so-favorite) living public figures honored on postage stamps.
The Unites States Postal Service has decided to drop its time-honored rule that an individual must be deceased five years to be honored on a stamp and now, they are asking the public to weigh in on what living figures should be chosen next. One must wonder if this move is an attempt to get more people to buy stamps and use USPS.
USPS is taking suggestions via Facebook, Twitter, or if you have a few stamps lying around, you can send a letter to: Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, c/o Stamp Development, Room 3300, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Washington DC 20260-3501.
So tell us, now that living people can get their own stamp, who would you choose?
