16 Eames Stamps for 2008

    Newer Older

    Sometime this summer, Charles and Ray will be honored with the release of 16 stamps celebrating their work. Here's more and another post.

    I don't normally post pix that I didn't take, but for this I am making an exception because there are certain protocols with stamps as they are legal tender. We have been working with the post office for over 10 years and it is exciting to finally be able to tell people about these stamps.

    kaylovesvintage, ctb59, bokeh burger, and 139 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I keep checking the USPS website but I guess they are not out yet? Any word on when they might hit the shelves so to speak :)

      Well, the official release date is going to be Charles' 101st birthday--June 17. The first day of issue will be held at the Eames Office in Santa Monica. So it will be at other post offices then as well.

      Hi All,

      I got availability questions on alot of these pictures. YES they are out today. First day of issue at 850 Pico in Santa Monica at 11 AM. You are welcome to come.

      But nationwide, anyone can walk into a post office (as I understand it) and buy them or at least order them. International readers may have local stamp brokers with agreements with the US Post Office

      A limited number will be available through the Eames Office starting next week! www.eamesoffice.com

      I went to the post office today to mail stuff (wich I very rarely do) and I saw the eames in the case, I had to buy them. They are sooo beautiful.
