Cancellations of new stamps offered
Upon the United States Postal Service’s release of several Pixar-themed postage stamps Aug. 19, the Monterey USPS Station, 5014 Gary Ave., will offer special pictorial cancellations of the stamps.
The postage stamps will feature animated characters from the Pixar movies “Cars,” “Toy Story”, “Ratatouille,” “Up” and “WALL-E.”
The cancellation will include the date of issue, Aug. 19, and will feature an imprint of Lightning McQueen, a character from “Cars” and “Cars 2.”
Some stamp collectors have their stamps imprinted with the cancellation as a memento of newly issued stamps.
Those interested in having their stamps canceled can visit Monterey Station between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Aug. 19, or can send their stamps to be canceled in a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Monterey Station until Sept. 19. After that, the Lightning McQueen cancellation will be unavailable.
For more information about the new stamps or the pictorial cancellation, call Wes Ballew 747-7098.
