LOS ANGELES - December 4, 2008 - Stamps.com®, the "intelligent" alternative to a postage meter, announced that it is offering one free custom PhotoStamp to the boys and girls in the U.S. to help them make their letter to Santa stand out this year.
Parents and their children can visit www.photostamps.com/santa, upload their photos or design, and place the order. The Santa PhotoStamp will arrive in one week or less - just in time for the letter to be mailed to the North Pole.
"We are excited to add a fun new element to the time-honored tradition of sending a letter to Santa," said Ken McBride, Stamps.com president and CEO. "PhotoStamps are a unique way for people to add a personal touch to a special letter, and this is a great way for parents and children to spend some creative time together."
