Rudolph, Wisconsin Post Office Sought for Its Stamp
All post offices are busy this week, but one Wisconsin Post Office is particularly overrun with holiday letters and packages.
Every year, people seek out the post office in Rudolph, Wisconsin for their special postage.
The stamping tradition began in 1945 as a Girl Scout project.
Rubber stamps were made, and the tradition took off.
Now 71 years later, the post mark and stamp are so popular people overseas are seeking it out.
“We get a lot of customers that also mail their boxes of cards in from different states. I think this year we got cards that came in from China, one from Thailand, some from Japan, all around Europe," said a postal worker.
The Rudolph stamp is available year round upon request, but because the town shares its name with a certain red nosed reindeer, it's especially popular this time of year.
