Valentine's Day Card Postmark

How to Get a Romantic Postmark on Your Valentine's Day Cards

Of all the ways to say "I love you" on February 14, a Valentine's Day card is the most traditional. Here's a way to give your holiday cards an unexpected touch, and perhaps start a new tradition with your friends and loved ones.

Have your cards posted in a city with a romantic name. In the United States there are dozens of towns with names that are appropriate for the love-themed holiday, such as Darling, Mississippi, Valentine, Nebraska, or Loveland, Colorado.

The United States Postal Service maintains a list of romance-themed towns that participate in the postmark program. Why send heartfelt sentiments from Anytown, USA when you can arrange to have your cards posted in Romeo, Michigan, Bridal Veil, Oregon, or Romance, Arkansas?

The post office in Loveland, Colorado has created a special Valentine's Day cancellation stamp every year since 1946. Each February, local volunteers process as many as 300,000 cards and letters from over 100 countries and all of the 50 states.
