Apple stamps for postcards introduced at Yakima

YAKIMA — The Postal Service is introducing four apple stamps in a ceremony Thursday at the main post office in Yakima.

The stamps depict four varieties of apples. Golden Delicious and Granny Smith are Northwest favorites. Northern Spy and Baldwin are East Coast varieties.

Postal Service spokesman Ernie Swanson said the apple stamps are for postcards and carry the new 33-cent price that goes into effect on Jan. 27. First-class stamps also will be going up on that date to 46 cents.
