2010 Olympic Winter Game Stamps
Canada Post has been named an Official Supplier for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
From iconic sports imagery to the Vancouver 2010 mascots — Sumi, Miga, and Quatchi — 2010 Winter Games-themed stamps will decorate Canada’s mail starting in December 2008.
As part of the $3 million Official Supplier partnership, Canada Post will provide mail delivery services within Canada. In addition, Canada Post — as an authorized user of VANOC trademarks — will design, produce and sell more than half a billion 2010 Winter Games-themed stamps and associated philatelic products, including collectors’ packages and special cancellations.
In turn, Canada Post receives sponsorship rights for the Canadian Olympic team for the Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Games.
Stamps will be issued to celebrate all three Games.
