Steve Jobs Postage Stamps will Come in 2015

The US postal service has been left far behind by email, Skype and other text messaging facilities. But that in no way means that it is completely defunct. Not yet at least that is. Many people still go for the old school method of licking a postage stamp and affixing it to an envelope. 

There are many cultural entities from cartoon characters to singers that will make their way to postage stamps in the years 2014 and 2015. Among them those that top the list are Steve Jobs, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the Peanuts cartoon strip characters and finally Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix. 

Others include Charlton Heston and Beatles all-time great John Lennon. Steve Jobs though is way up there as the real cultural symbol and icon of the 21st century. He made Apple a household word just like Bill Gates made Microsoft a domestic phrase. 

Usually, the post office keeps the topics of its future postage stamp issues a secret but this time around it has let the cat out of the bag. A team of dedicated creative artists and thinkers has been set up to work on the postage stamps. 

A commemorative issue of Steve Jobs holding up an iPhone for the audience to see is one of the top priorities. Jobs can do for snail mail what he did for the world of computers. Just by putting his face and name on an issue there will be a great demand for the US postal service’s postage stamps.

Over the course of a month I have published one book and completed another. The published book is a history of Intel Corporation, largely told through its three famous founders.
