Will Potter Postage Succeed Where Simpsons Stamps Failed?
Senior Editor Marc Graser writes on the Variety.com website, "The United States Postal Service took a major financial hit when it
released a series of commemorative postage stamps celebrating the 20th
anniversary of 'The Simpsons' four years ago."
According to Graser the USPS lost $1.2 million when it
sold just 318 million of the 1 billion “Simpsons” stamps it printed in
On Nov. 19, the USPS will give it another go and release a five-page stamp booklet featuring 20 stamps with characters and scenes from the “Harry Potter” films. This time, however, they're just printing just five million of the limited-edition Potter postage.
