1982 20¢ Consumer Education

  • Created at request of First Lady Rosalyn Carter
  • Issued to raise awareness of the importance of consumer education
  • Released during National Consumers Week

April 27, 1982

Why the stamp was issued:  To raise awareness of the importance of consumer education.  The stamp was issued during National Consumers Week, which was sponsored by the US Office of Consumer Affairs.

 

About the stamp design:  The stamp was designed by John Boyd to resemble the tags often found on clothes.  The tag is labeled, “Consumer Education,” while the title above the stamp reads “Wise shoppers stretch dollars.” 

 

First Day City:  The First Day ceremony for this stamp was held in Washington, DC during National Consumers Week.

 

Unusual fact about this stamp:  Imperforate error stamps exist – US 2005a.

 

History the stamp represents:  During her husband's term as President, Rosalyn Carter began her consumer education program to teach Americans how to create a budget and stretch their shopping dollars. Late in 1978, she began petitioning for a consumer education stamp to make the public more aware of her program. Because she mainly targeted minorities, such as Hispanics and African-Americans, she wanted two stamps printed – one in English and another in Spanish.

 

The stamp's production was held up for several years while the Postal Service and the Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee deliberated as to whether the US should begin printing stamps bi-lingually. Eventually, it was decided that the stamp would be released in English. The stamp was issued in 1982, after President Carter had left office.
