USPS puts furry spin on rescue stamps

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

The US Postal Service is promoting a "Furry. Friendly." service on its front page; a set of animal-rescue stamps designed to heighten awareness of the need to adopt shelter pets.

A pane of 20 stamps costs $8.80 and includes ten designs. Notecards, catalogs and press sheets are also on sale.

Special offer from ANTHRO

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes) (the zine proper) (donations)

Quentin "Editor-for-life of ANTHRO" Long here with an announcement that some of you may find interesting -- particularly those people who send a lot of stuff through the US Postal Service. As it happens, you can get legitimate, genuine US postage printed up with your own graphics... and I've done just that with STRAIGHTAWAY, the nifty "centaur + horse race" picture that Lucius Appaloosius did for the cover of ANTHRO #2. Again, this is genuinely valid US postage you can put on letters or package or whatever other mail you send. "Sounds great," I hear you ask, "but how do I get my hands on these stamps?"
