US Stamp on Neon Celebrate

\"\"Good times call for good wishes, as the United States Postal Service gets in on the act with the Neon Celebrate! stamp  issued in March2011. Bringing an extra wish for happiness to anyone celebrating a special time, this stamp features a brilliantly coloured design crafted out of neon and glass that adds a spark to greeting cards, invitations, and gift-bearing envelopes and packages. No matter the occasion—birthday, anniversary, engagement, wedding, new job, retirement—this stamp will add another congratulatory wish to the good times being acknowledged.Inspired by a visit to the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles, Art Director Phil Jordan began to think about the possibility of using neon to depict a stamp subject. He decided that a “Neon Celebrate!” stamp, with its imagery of vivid colours, fit the bill. “Most neon is huge and stamps are so small,” said Jordan. “The mechanics would be a monumental challenge. Not everyone thought we could pull it off.”
