The United States Postal Service, in cooperation with Spadafora Slush and Ice Cream Shoppe, hosted a special dedication of the new Frozen Treats Forever Stamps at the shop (136 Highland Ave., Malden) on Tuesday with USPS Manager of Postal Operations William Collins and William and Donna Spadafora.
Frozen Treats is the Postal Service’s first Scratch and Sniff stamp, allowing customers to attach the scents of summer to their correspondence. The stamps feature illustrations of frosty, colorful, icy pops on a stick. Today, Americans love cool, refreshing ice pops on a hot summer day. The tasty, sweet stamp and real confections come in a variety of shapes and flavors.
This booklet of 20 stamps showcases the work of Margaret Berg of Santa Monica, Calif., and depicts whimsical watercolor illustrations of frozen treats. Each of the 10 stamp designs includes two different treats. “FOREVER • USA” appears along the bottom of each stamp. Frozen Treats is being issued as First-Class Mail Forever stamps, which will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
