Canada Post has announced that it will discontinue its Picture Postage program on September 1, 2022. This was Canada Post's program for clients to create valid postage stamps using their own artwork.
Not surprisingly, Picture Postage had become popular with many Canadian Canadian philatelists (stamp collectors), so we have written letters to Canada Post to support continuing the program. Here is my email to Canada Post's Picture Postage Management Team:
Bronwyn Graves (executive): firstname.lastname@example.org
Elaine David (assistant executive): email@example.com
Dave Penner (director): firstname.lastname@example.org
I am writing to ask that the Picture Postage program be continued. Over the years, I have created 10 Picture Postage stamps and have another 2 orders in process. I have also written an article about personalized postage in Canada, the United States, and the United Nations Postal Administration for The Canadian Philatelist ("Getting Personalized Stamps from Three Countries", March-April 2020).
