Canada Post, after put out celebrity stamps of Hollywood actors, is now launching its latest star-studded series, this time featuring Canadian music icons ranging from Paul Anka, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot to Anne Murray.
"We get thousands of suggestions from Canadians every year and recording artists have always been one of the more requested themes. Canadians want to see Canada Post recognize homegrown talent," Canada Post's marketing and public-relations manager, Cindy Daoust, said.
Ms. Daoust, moreover, went on saying "The recording artists who were selected are ones who established themselves on a world stage before Canadian music was as popular as it is now -- and when we were still struggling to compete against our American counterparts".
The so-called Canadian Recording Artists stamp series was designed by Circle in Winnipeg, and printed by Lowe-Martin for Canada Post. The stamps will be available for public by June 29th.
