Sparkling Holidays

Sheet that shows classic illustration of Santa Claus

The Postal Service will release its Sparkling Holidays stamps and souvenir sheet Thursday, Oct. 11.

The stamps, which USPS announced this summer, showcase classic images of Santa Claus painted by famed commercial artist Haddon Sundblom.

The souvenir sheet includes a semi-jumbo stamp as part of a wider scene that depicts Santa standing by a fireplace and holding a book that lists good boys and girls.

The stamps, which will be sold in booklets of 20, and the souvenir sheet, which features the single semi-jumbo stamp, will be available for pre-order at, beginning Friday, Sept. 14.

Last week’s media advisory has more information.
