To a future bride and groom, every wedding planning detail is important, including the stamps on announcements, RSVP envelopes, thank-you notes and other letters of correspondence. To that end, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has introduced the Wedding Roses commemorative stamp, for which MACtac® supplied the pressure-sensitive adhesive label materials.

The stamp was released as part of the USPS’ “Weddings” series and features a photo of two white roses laid atop an invitation with a white ribbon in the background. The stamp was designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, MD, and the photo was taken by Renee Comet of Washington, DC.

“To most engaged couples, especially brides-to-be, planning a wedding is an exciting process consisting of several steps of intricate, detailed planning-from the flowers chosen to the stamps used on the invitations-that culminates into one joyous occasion,” said Allison Hazel, marketing manager for MACtac Printing Products. “Knowing MACtac’s label stock is the solution depended on to deliver messages of love, joy and happiness while adding a unique touch to wedding correspondence is very pleasing.”

MACtac also supplied the pressure-sensitive adhesive label material for the Wedding Rings stamp issued in 2009 as part of the “Weddings” series. The company has been a qualified supplier for USPS stamps for more than seven years, providing materials for a number of pressure-sensitive stamps.
