The 2017 theme is the anniversary of World War I.


The San Diego USPS did the impossible!

The USPS from San Diego was at the show all three days. At the last minute they were able to produce a beautifully designed cachet commemorating our theme with a unique commemorative cancel. Cachet and cancel artist was Phil Dockter. This is the only cachet and cancel from the show. Because of the late timing it was produced in limited quantity.

The USPS has some of these commemorative covers available.

Don't miss out, order yours directly from:
