The design for a computer-vended postage label featuring Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man was recently unveiled. It will be available at selected larger United States post offices starting April 1.
The labels will be vended through some of the Postal Service’s self-service kiosks, also known as Automatic Postal Centers (APCs). A list of those offices is available at www.usps.com/amazing/spider-man-postage-locations.pdf.
The label is being released in partnership with the feature film The Amazing-Spider Man 2, which debuts in theaters May 2.
A voided test example of the label is pictured nearby.
Only locations with self-service kiosks that vend labels and ATM panes of 18 stamps will be the ones with the Spider-Man labels. This allows for customers to choose the stamp they want instead of having the Spider-Man postage label as the only option.
Other locations that only vend postage labels will not have the new Spider-Man labels and will have instead a new American Flag preprinted design that has not yet been unveiled.
