U.S. Postal Service to Issue Classic Santa Stamps this Christmas

Art Features Images from 1950s Coca-Cola Ads

June 26, 2018

The Postal Service will release Sparkling Holidays, four stamps that feature close-up images of Santa Claus, in October.

The images are from Haddon Sundblom paintings created for Coca-Cola holiday advertisements that ran from the 1940s through the early 1960s. Sundblom, a famed commercial artist, depicted a rosy-cheeked, smiling, grandfatherly man in a red suit that came to embody the essence of Santa Claus.

Additional details will be announced before the stamps’ release.

Why is forever marked through after USA??? Is it not a forever stamp? Or is it something negative towards the USA? I don’t like that.

Always marked through so they can’t be copied Jay! Not on the actual stamp!
