USPS Textured Stamps

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service will soon release first-of-a-kind stamps with the look — and feel — of actual balls used in eight popular sports. Available nationwide June 14, the Have a Ball! Forever stamps depict balls used in baseball, basketball, football, golf, kickball, soccer, tennis and volleyball. A special coating applied to selected areas of the stamps during the printing process gives them a texture that mimics the feel of a: • baseball’s stitching; • golf ball’s dimples; • tennis ball’s seams • soccer ball or volleyball’s textured panels; and, • the different raised patterns of a football, basketball and kickball. News about the stamps is being shared on social media under the hashtag #Haveaballstamps. The first-day-of-issuance ceremony will be held at 8 a.m. CDT, Wed., June 14, at the 117th U.S. Open Championship in Hartford, WI. The ceremony will be part of the U.S. Golf Association’s Flag Day celebration. The Postal Service is honored to be part of this special tribute to those who serve or have served in the military. Nearly one of seven postal employees served in the military.
