As you may have heard, the new Houdini Stamp was issued in New York City on July 3rd. What you may not know is that it is not too late to get your first day issue.
Customers have 30 days to obtain the first day of issue postmark by mail. They may purchase new stamps at their local Post Office, by telephone at 1 800 STAMP-24, and at the Postal Store at www.usps.com.
They should affix the stamps to envelopes of their choice, address the envelopes (to themselves or others), and place them in a larger envelope addressed to:
HOUDINI COMMEMORATIVE STAMP
421 EIGHTH AVE RM 2029B
NEW YORK NY 10199-9991
After applying the first day of issue postmark, the Postal Service will return the envelopes through the mail. There is no charge for the postmark. All orders must be postmarked by August 2, 2002.
