The Forever Stamp February 27, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in life, politics.
The idea of the Forever Stamp is great. Imagine not having to ever buy 2 or 3 cent stamps to make up the difference when rates go up? At the very least, you no longer have to worry.
But, I’m not totally happy with the idea. The problem is that every news report has discussed just having one particular stamp design. As a former stamp collector, that would suck! Stamps are beautiful. I seriously doubt that the US Post office would abandon their long tradition of stamp diversity — after all, we have many different versions of the current first class stamps. But I had to get my protest in early.
Speaking of which — has anyone tried this photo-stamp service? It lets you upload photos and then prints them as stamps for you to use as first class postage.
