Cudahy, — Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The best way to celebrate that special day is by using the written word, according to a survey conducted by the Postal Service.
The survey revealed that 94 percent of moms find a handwritten card delivered by mail more meaningful than emails or small gifts on Mother’s Day. The survey asked adult-aged consumers their preference in Mother’s Day gifts. The overwhelming majority of female respondents said they prefer handwritten cards or other items delivered in the mail.
Cudahy Postmaster Mark Groshek suggests customers mail their Mother’s Day cards and letters using the latest Cut Paper Heart Forever Love stamp.
“This year’s Love stamp is a reminder that the most heartfelt messages for Mother’s Day are personalized and sent by mail,” said Groshek. “With this lovely paper heart, this stamp will help spread a message of love on cards and letters mailed all across America.”
And, these Forever stamps will be valid for First-Class Mail postage forever, no matter what the price is when you put them on the envelope,” added Groshek. The Love stamp series was launched in 1973
