Harry Potter Postage Stamps

In case you haven't heard the news, Harry Potter Postage Stamps are available today for purchase through the United States Postal Service!

I just learned about the Harry Potter postage stamps last weekend through an article I read on the USA Today website titled Post Office begins selling Harry Potter stamps Tuesday by Donna Leinwand Leger.

In the article, Donna Leinwand Leger writes:
The U.S. Postal Service will produce 5 million booklets of 20 First-Class Forever Harry Potter stamps, says Susan McGowan, executive director of stamp services for the postal service.

"Anyone who collects anything about Harry Potter will want this in their collection," she says. "We anticipate a big demand for these."

The limited-edition commemorative stamps have 20 unique images from the eight movies about the British boy wizard and his friends, foes and fantastic creatures. Among the images are Voldemort, Dumbledore and the Weasley brothers.
 So, will you be buying the limited-edition Harry Potter commemorative postage stamps when they come out? 

I'm not sure if I will be buying a booklet of the Harry Potter Stamps. I'm not a stamp collector myself. The holidays are right around the corner. So, I'll most likely be buying holiday themed postage stamps to place on the holiday greeting cards I'll be mailing out next month.


  1. I love this... those I wish they were artwork from the books. But I guess movie shots should will do.

    1. The funny part for me was that I had visited our local post office to mail off some packages on Monday morning. I mentioned the Harry Potter postage stamps going on sale yesterday and that I thought they'd be big hit with postal customers. The postal worker who'd been helping me had no idea what I was talking about. Needless to say, I was surprised that they didn't have a clue about the new Harry Potter postage stamps. Why wouldn't a postal worker be informed of new products coming out??
