First issued in 1907, Christmas seals were championed by Emily Bissel with the help of the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis (NASPT) and the American Red Cross. They were initially printed and sold to raise money to fight tuberculosis. Now printed by the American Lung Association (which the NASPT became in 1973), the seals are still sold today to raise money for respiratory illnesses.

Christmas seals have no postage value, but have adorned Christmas and holiday mail for over a century. Add a touch of history and bright color to your mail with these seals featuring winter images. Seals can occupy any position on your holiday envelope.

Most Christmas seal sheets were folded and mailed when originally purchased, and thus the perforations between columns are weak or even separating. This is rather common on older Christmas seal sheets. All of the sheets present well (for framing, for example) and will be shipped flat, but expect some separation between some of the columns or rows. A few of the seals in the set may have dry gum or may be missing gum and will need a touch of a glue stick. Most of the seals will have full gum on the reverse and a quick dab of a moist sponge should be all they need.

Shipping Info: We ship our stamps, stickers, and other flat items in a sturdy, flat mailer with tracking for the best protection. Because the post office considers this a “package” and not a flexible envelope, the cost of shipping is subject to package prices. This is the best way to protect your purchase.

T-shirts are shipped in poly mailers.
