The US Post Office is releasing a set of Starwars stamps to commemorate the release of the film thirty years ago. The stamps will officially be released at the Star Wars convention on May 25th.
The sheet of stamps contains 15 different stamps and will be eagerly awaited by Star Wars fans and stamp collectors alike.

Those who use expressmail will be able to use Jedi Master envelopes…although one wonders about businesses that send you official papers using a Darth Vader envelope.

They are also sponsoring a contest to win a free trip to the convenion in Los Angeles…LINKHERE… and have repainted 400 postboxes to look like R2D2.
You tax dollars at work.

But actually, it’s not really wasted money. You see, many of the stamps will be collected and never used, so selling specialty stamps generates a profit.
