Send a Hello Forever Stamps Salute Pixar Characters

August 21st, 2011

"Hello" is a simple, everyday word. Today, it has a new meaning as the U.S. Postal Service issues the Send a Hello Forever stamps to connect family and friends through the power of the mail.

The new Send a Hello Forever stamps feature the characters of five popular movies created by Disney-Pixar Animation Studios: Buzz Lightyear and two green, three-eyed aliens from Toy Story; Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars; Remy the rat and Linguini from Ratatouille; the robot Wall-E from Wall-E; and Carl Fredricksen and Dug from Up.

The stamps were designed by art directors Terrence McCaffrey and William Gicker together with Ben Butcher at Disney-Pixar and Dave Pacheco at Disney Consumer Products.

The Send a Hello Forever stamps are an outgrowth of the Art of Disney stamp series issued between 2004 and 2008. Originally a series of three annual issuances depicting friendship, celebration and romance, the Art of Disney stamps proved so popular that the Postal Service expanded the series in 2007 and 2008.
