Now that social media is a thing, the speed it takes to communicate via traditional mail can be deemed as, well, evil; and evil it is, now with villain-inspired stamps.
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has launched a ‘Disney Villains’ stamp collection, so even the spiteful-hearted can get sentimental.
The full sheet of 20 stamps features 10 classic Disney villains: “‘Maleficent’ (Sleeping Beauty), ‘Honest John’ (Pinocchio), ‘Cruella De Vil’ (One Hundred and One Dalmatians), ‘Captain Hook’ (Peter Pan), the ‘Queen of Hearts’ (Alice in Wonderland), ‘Lady Tremaine’ (Cinderella), ‘Ursula’ (The Little Mermaid), the ‘Queen’ (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), ‘Gaston’ (Beauty and the Beast), and ‘Scar’ (The Lion King).”
The reverse side of the sheet showcases iconic quotes by these villains. The back of the ‘Maleficient’ stamp, for example, reads, “You poor simple fools! Thinking you could defeat me, me, the ‘Mistress of All Evil’!”
“No reason I would ever need a stamp in 2017, then out come ‘Disney Villain’ stamps and [I’m] suddenly looking for a post office,” says Twitter user ‘MrsJenGomez’.
Have a look at some stamp designs below and view the full collection over at the USPS website.
