RSVP:

Background:

Stamps are se-tenant, meaning they work together as a single scene or as individual images. Santa’s happy helpers are tireless in their chores to prepare treats and toys for holiday gifts. Much like flying reindeer, the North Pole, and Santa Claus himself, elves are woven into the fabric of the season’s traditions.

Artist Don Clark first sketched out his design and then created the final illustration digitally. Antonio Alcalá was the artistic director.

Customers can purchase stamps and other philatelic products through the Postal store at usps.com/shopstampsby calling 844-737-7826, by mail via United States Philatelic or at post offices across the country.

The Postal Service generally does not receive tax dollars for its operating expenses and depends on the sale of postage, goods, and services to fund its operations.
