And - The First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony of the Mail a Smile Forever Stamps featuring Disney/Pixar characters will be held at 9 a.m. Friday, June 1 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista.
The Postal Service celebrates the second of two stamp sheets featuring beloved Disney•Pixar characters. Following up on Send a Hello stamps issued in 2011, the Mail a Smile stamp sheet includes five different designs spotlighting:
Flik and Dot from “A Bug’s Life” (1998); Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) and Dashiell “Dash” Parr from “The Incredibles” (2004), with “Dash” also shown running in the background; Nemo and Squirt from “Finding Nemo” (2003); Woody, Bullseye, and Jessie from “Toy Story 2” (1999); and Boo, Mike Wazowski, and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan from “Monsters, Inc.” (2001).
The back of the stamp pane shows blue-pencil sketches of characters from these movies interspersed among text that exhorts readers to “mail a smile” to a loved one. Art director William J. Gicker of Washington, DC, worked with Disney/Pixar to design the stamp art.
