Send a Card and Deliver a Smile! Celebrate Thinking of You Week with “Message Monsters” Stamps

Who doesn’t feel a rush of joy when they open a handwritten card or letter received in the mail? Many of us rediscovered the simple, yet powerful pleasures of keeping in touch with pen, paper and a postage stamp during the pandemic.

Later this month, everyone across America – and around the globe – is invited to send a card, deliver a smile and together create a much-needed wave of happiness during Thinking of You Week. Celebrated September 20 to 26, Thinking of You Week is an international movement to celebrate the joy of sending and receiving hand-written notes and greeting cards. Launched in the United Kingdom in 2014, the celebration was brought to the U.S. by the Greeting Card Association in 2018.

Adding to the celebration this year, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) will adorn first class mail with a special postmark dedicated to the global event throughout the month of September. And more fun still, USPS will be releasing awesome new “Message Monsters” stamps to coincide with Thinking of You Week. USPS describes the stamps as “the most playful, participatory postage stamps ever — stamps that welcome you to customize a collection of cute and crazy critters. They’ll ride through the mail, adapted by you, adding mirth to your messages.”
