Love is in the air, and in the mail again.
What could be finer than a love letter with a special postmark?
The city of Loveland, Colorado has kicked off its annual re-mailing program for lovebirds who want a special "Loveland" postmark on their Valentine's Day envelopes.
There are other remailing programs, including Valentine, Nebraska; Romance, Arkansas; Loving, New Mexico; Romeo, Michigan and Juliette, Georgia. But none are larger than the Loveland program.
To have valentines re-mailed with the Loveland postmark, enclose your pre-stamped, pre-addressed envelopes (envelopes should each have 44-cent postage; postcards should have 28-cents postage), add extra stamps/postage for heavier/odd shaped and square valentines, mail in a large stamped envelope or package with postage to:
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538
