The United States Postal Service unveiled a new snowboarding postage stamp this weekend following the Grand Prix in Park City.
“We are proud to show our admiration for the sport and the accomplishments of each and every one of the riders,” said USPS Board of Governor Alan C. Kressler before the unveiling on Friday night at Park City with members of the Olympic team. “The stories of triumph motivate us to do our very best in our own lives and the U.S. Postal Service is cheering for all of our Olympic athletes.”
According to examiner.com:
It’s the fifth time an Olympic Winter Games comparative stamp has made its debut in Utah. Previous stamps were issued in 1985 (for the Special Olympics), 1994, 1998 and in 2002 when Utah hosted the Winter Games.
Forty-five million copies of the Olympic stamp already have been printed and are for sale. It is available at all three Park City Post Offices as well as special souvenir envelopes with the Official First Day of Issue postmark.
