Calling All Philatelists! USPS Issuing New Aloha Shirt Postcard Stamp!


A vintage Aloha shirt

We love Aloha shirts and have blogged about them earlier (https://kauaikolea.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/magnum-pi-jimmy-buffett-and-cosmos-kramer-aloha-shirt-ambassadors/) .  While 2011 was the Year of the Aloha Shirt in Hawaii  — marking 75 years of its arrival — 2012 will be the year that the Aloha Shirt postcard stamp is issued by the United States Postal Service.

Guests in our condos receive free postcards to mail back to friends (maybe snow-bound friends this time of year?!).  Before you head on over to Kaua’i, pick up some of the new Aloha Shirt stamps.  The first day of issue will be this Thursday.

The new stamps feature several variations of the Aloha shirt.

The first stamp (5 variations are available) is a red shirt with surfers and large waves.  One of the black shirts depicts surfboards while a second black shirt is of the Kilauea volcano, according to the USPS.  Birds of Paradise, the gorgeous tropical flower, adorn a navy blue shirt, while fish, seastars, and shells decorate the white Aloha shirt.

The Governor and artists who designed the stamps will be at a Honolulu post office on Thursday to mark the occasion, but you can order stamps on line at www.usps.com or by phone at 800-782-6724.

In any case, whether you are on Oahu or on the mainland, pick up some Aloha shirt stamps before you head on over to our place.  Remember, our condos are offered at a discount rate for any date in 2012 if you book  by March 31, 2012.
