possibly only the postmaster general & myself...

...are excited--in a GOOD WAY--about the new 42-cent first class stamps. i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "have you gone MAD, lauren? do you really want to PAY MORE to mail your gas bill??!" ok, see, it's not the 42-cent part that i'm happy about. it's WHO'S ON (one of) the new stamps. uh-huh. it's FRANK!!!!!!!!!!:

there's a bigger, closer-up pic in this associated press article

i bought two sheets, so far. i'm puttin' them on cards. i'm puttin' them on bills. i may even put 'em on those pre-paid envelopes the bank sends me for making deposits. because, yeah, they're THAT COOL!

on second thought, even the postmaster general might not be quite as excited about this as i am!!! :)


  1. You are as excited as I was when Elvis stamps came out...except mine are still preserved in their shrink wrap :)

  2. ooo ooo
    you could mail yourself something and then add it to that page you made the other day for the 3BT :-) or you could scan it and make another whole un-pointless but pointless page :-)
    frank-a-plenty frank-ga-lore!
    (okay oblio - another strange reference. check it out:
    and DO do the Search Inside.. is that pig in the chefs hat with the oatmeal not theeee cutest?
    anyway i love the "aplenty, galore" thing to describe quantities :-))

  3. errr... is a non-treason offence to say I don't love Frank? b/c if it then I won't.

  4. OMG, I am sooooooo jealous! The last time I got a ten pack of stamps at Australia Post I was horrified to discover that they were pics of FOOTBALLERS (Rugby League as we Aussies call it - no helmets!) Now I don't know about you, but I don't like the idea of spending enoromous amounts of time and effort to make a gorgeous embelished and prettied up card for one of my favourite girls and have to send it off with an ugly guy carrying a football on the stamp... it just seems WRONG!!!! Next time I buy stamps I'm gonna insist - NO FOOTBALL! But we still wouldn't ever get super cool Frank Stamps. Sometimes life is just NOT FAIR! I think I might start a petition to Australia Post - if you're gonna put guys on stamps at least make em cute!

  5. Hi Lauren, I thought of you the other day when I was at the post office and saw these Frank stamps. It reminded me of the project you made with the advertisement. I just knew these were produced especially for you. Now you have no reason not to make a great project with a few of these awesome stamps. Have a great weekend.
