Pretty postage stamps available

socks

These stamps are so pretty. Something different for anyone sending cards. I ordered online from USPS. They charge $1.30 for shipping. Seems odd, oh well.

I bought $66.50 worth of stamps online in April, and paid $1.80 shipping. The only time I use stamps is when I send snail mail letters to my sister who lives in a board and care home, and for sending cards. You'd think the Postal Service could just deliver a stamp order along with the rest of your mail for no additional cost, but, still, paying $1.80 is worth it to me to not to have to go to the Post Office.

Those are pretty stamps, though. I think I'll have to take a look to see what other new designs they might have. My sister is big on sending out cards and notes, and she always appreciates getting stamps.

Oh, those are so nice! I recently bought a roll, because I have a very handy heavy brass roll-dispenser. But I may need a sheet of the winter scenes for all our winter occasions. (You know the expression, in spring a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love? Apparently our family is the source of that expression. . . )

I always order mine. I go through all the various forever stamps and get the ones I like best. Currently I have some beautiful orchids, Chinese new year, Scooby-Doo, celebration fireworks, and the flag.

I got those same stamps today. They were preordered at the time because they weren't available when I ordered them. Weird that I am still waiting for the other stamps I bought at the same time that were supposedly available.

Those are pretty! Worth the 1.30 IMO.

I love the Scooby Doo stamps! But they are rather large and I can't use them for certain windowed envelopes.

I received my pack of the winter scenes yesterday. I also ordered some of one of the 70-cent version of a floral to use for my square Christmas cards this year. I just discovered that the post office has closed down the personalized stamp program where you could send an image to various web sites and they would make them into first class stamps. I'm really disappointed because that was one of my favorite things to use for special birthdays and holidays.

The winter scenes are very pretty, I may have to order some. . Last week I was at the post office mailing some documents, decided to pick up some Forever Stamps as I was low. Well the post office was low too, I ended up with Sesame Street and Scooby Doo. Fun, but I need some that are a bit less “fun” as well.

I think in the past they did deliver stamps for free.

About a month ago I bought some online from the USPS. Mine were American Gardens. My son looked in the desk for a stamp and when he saw them he asked if they were stamps. They are a larger size and have lovely pictures

They are like tiny works of art, aren't they, Rose?

Those are pretty! I love commemorative stamps. I try to get them from our local post office because it's small and they rely on purchases to stay in business, but this year I ordered Ruth Asawa, the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor, and Harlem Renaissance from the USPS. Their shipping charge of $1.30 is the exact cost of the postage required to send them to you.

Those are pretty. I wish I had stocked up when they had Charlie Brown and Rudolph christmas stamps. I only got a sheet of each and I'm kicking myself for it now that they are all gone. :(
