The Postal Service will issue commemorative stamps celebrating Bugs Bunny’s 80th birthday on Monday, July 27.

USPS and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will dedicate the stamps during a virtual ceremony that day, which marks the 80th anniversary of Bugs Bunny’s official screen debut.

The character has always been known for his impeccable impersonations and his masterful masquerades, so the soon-to-be-revealed 10 designs on the 20-stamp pane will each showcase a costumed Bugs Bunny in some of his most memorable getups.

The original stamp artwork is based on Bugs Bunny’s iconic moments and was created especially for the stamps by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., featuring work from Warner Bros. Animation artists, who also created the sketches on the reverse side of the stamp pane.

Greg Breeding designed the stamps, while William J. Gicker served as art director.

Customers can pre-order the stamps at usps.com/shopstamps beginning Monday, June 29.

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the stamps at the USPS Facebook page. For details about the virtual dedication ceremony, go to usps.com/bugsbunny.

Take notice

The Postal Service has introduced an online form to help customers who send Political Mail.

Political Mail consists of mailings from registered political candidates, parties and related organizations like political action committees. USPS delivered a record 3 billion pieces of Political Mail during the 2018 midterm election cycle — a number that could grow this year.

The new form, located on usps.com, allows customers to initiate Political Mail notices, which alert Post Office facilities and delivery units about a customer’s incoming mailing. Customers are encouraged to submit their information through the form at least two days before the mail arrives at a facility.

Customers also can use the form to initiate a Political Mail inquiry, which is used to report concerns such as delivery delays, damaged mail, misdelivered mail and undelivered mail.

USPS requires that a separate notice or inquiry be sent for each mailing.

“This online tool will help us better support our Political Mail customers and continue to provide the service they expect from us,” said Vivian Ramsey, a mailing senior sales executive who serves as a lead expert on Political Mail.

The Election Mail and Political Mail Blue page has more information and resources.
