Winter Fun Stamps

United State Postal Services

Launched October 23 in NYC - The Winter Fun Stamps from USPS

US citizen can now send their mail with our stamps featuring the northern cardinal.

In a simple scene prominently featuring a bright red northern cardinal, we highlights the contrast between the bird’s plumage and the snowy background. Beginning with sketches and then moving to digital manipulation, we added a distinctive touch of texture to the design. “Cardinals have always seemed like a wonderful symbol of carrying on during winter,” explained Christine Roy, creative director.
