The Tragically Hip becomes the official stamp of the Mayor’s Office
July 29, 2013 -
Outgoing mail from the Mayor's office will have a new look starting this August. The office has made the Canada Post Tragically Hip Stamp, the official stamp of the Mayor's office.
"As a Kingstonian I am proud The Tragically Hip call Kingston their home, this stamp showcases a great local band whose talent is recognized all over the world," said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. "Using this stamp is one small way we can celebrate their contributions to our local community."
The Mayor's office will use the stamp until it is no longer available from Canada Post. All regular outgoing mail from the Mayor's office that currently requires a $0.63 stamp will feature the Tragically Hip stamp.
The Tragically Hip stamp is one of three new stamps to be released in Canada Post's Canadian Recording Artists stamp series. The stamp, designed by Louis Gagnon, became available July 19, 2013.
