This is the Year of the Snake and if you like putting colourful stamps on your cards and letters then head down to our local post office. Sherry will show you the New Year of the Snake stamps from Canada Post. Incorporating the auspicious colours of red and gold, the stamp features a lavishly textured red water snake. Detailed sculpted embossing gives the snake a stunning third dimension. And don't forget it costs a little more to mail your letters and bills. As of January 14, the first class letter rate to destinations in Canada is now 63 cents. If you still have the P stamp, it automatically adjusts to the new price.
