A New Way To Send Aloha Starts This Week

A New Way To Send Aloha Starts This Week

Postcards will take on a new tropical feeling this week when the Hawaii aloha shirt stamps are released by the US Postal Service. The shirts depict surfing, fish, shells, Bird of Paradise flowers and the Kilauea volcano. It’s a perfect way to honor the 75th anniversary of this iconic shirt.

If you’re a philatelist like I am, these new stamps take on even more feeling. I’ve been waiting to see the new stamps since they were first announced last year. They will be available starting Thursday and also online. I have a feeling that my friend Michael will be one of the first to buy. We wrote about him last year and our visit to Bailey’s Antiques and Aloha Shirts in Honolulu.

Ric Noyle is the Kaimuki, Oahu-based photographer who was commissioned for the stamp art. His photos can also be seen around the state including at the Halekulani Hotel, on Roberts tour buses and in books.

For other Hawaii stamp lovers, we aren’t done yet. Later this year, a Forever Stamp featuring the bonsai art of Hilo artist John D. Dawson will be introduced.
