Vancouver 2010 Winter Games Stamps

The Canadian Press website reports, "More than half a billion stamps and related products will be produced for the Games under the terms of a $3-million supplier agreement the carrier has signed with Olympic organizers."

According to the site, it is the first time Canada Post has been an official sponsor of the Olympics in Canada, though they have produced Olympic-related stamps in the past.

The report goes on to say, "Design of the 2010 stamps will be done in conjunction with Vancouver organizers and will likely feature images of the Olympic mascots, as well as sports imagery."

Dennis Kim, director of licensing and merchandising for the committee is quoted as saying the Olympics Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, has a room full of Olympic stamps from previous Games.
