Strawberry Festival Commemorative Postmark

What is a cancellation Postmark?

The words “postmark” and “cancel” often are used interchangeably. However, to be perfectly accurate, a postmark is the marking applied by a postal worker giving the place of mailing, the date of mailing and the time of mailing. The cancellation, or cancel for short, is the imprint on the postage stamp that invalidates it against future use. They are highly requested by collectors all over the world and can be obtained only from the issuing post office on the date indicated on the postmark and for a limited time afterward.  


In 2017 our Strawberry Festival postmark was featured in the USPS August monthly corporate publication.
