The U.S. Postal Service has teamed with Rhode Island-based ChemArt for this year's White House Holiday Ornament, now available at approximately 7,000 Post Offices across the U.S.
ChemArt has been the sole manufacturer of the annual ornament since 1981, and holds exclusive retail distribution rights by the White House Historical Association. This year's ornament is the 36th in the association’s series.
Next year, ChemArt will manufacture and sell holiday ornaments to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program. In 2013, the company will introduce licensed Holiday ornaments based on more than 50 years of Postal Service holiday stamp images.
“All of the ornaments will be made in the USA and will be sold in Post Offices and commercial retail channels,” says Gary Thuro, manager, USPS Licensing. “We are pleased to bring quality products to our customers and generate revenue for the Postal Service.”
