The deal will lead to the initial release of one-to-two custom stamp designs, before expanding to eight stamp designs in total. Each stamp will be released on the Island of St. Vincent where they will be available for purchase in all local post offices later this year. Stamps in the collection will also be available for sale through IGPC’s website.

“Ritchie Valens is an icon,” says Yossi Malamud, representative, IGPC. “It only makes sense to place him on official commemorative postage stamps from St. Vincent. The Caribbean countries have always had a close affinity to the U.S., and pop culture is a huge way to keep connections to the U.S. alive.”

IGPC previously developed philatelic lines for brands including “Downton Abbey” and the latest addition to the Star Trek franchise, “Star Trek: Discovery.”
