Post offices in Maine will be closed on Monday, Jan. 1 to celebrate 2018, a year that will offer many new stamps, such as the new Fred Rogers tribute stamp.
Over the years, U.S. postage has featured images of renowned men and women from all walks of life, as well as iconic photos, landscapes, and paintings that reflect American culture. And 2018 promises more of the same, with stamps honoring Lena Horne, Sally Ride, and more.
While only Priority Mail Express packages will be delivered on Monday, full delivery and retail operations will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 2.
The U.S. Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
