The Postal Service will release A Visit From St. Nick. four new holiday stamps. on Oct. 7. 2021.
When viewed together. the stamps create a storyboard depicting a traditional house call by the jolly old elf.
In the first stamp. a sack-laden Santa approaches a chimney on a snow-covered roof. In the second. black boots peek out from a fireplace as he makes his special delivery. The third is a close-up of his winking face. and the fourth shows him on his merry way. a reindeer-powered sleigh silhouetted against a full moon. mission accomplished.
Greg Breeding designed the stamps with original artwork by Brad Woodard. who sketched out the scenes and then digitized the illustrations.
