STEVENS POINT, WI | Stora Enso’s Stevens Point Mill supplied OptiLabel Stamp face paper and LumiSil Stamp release liner for the US Postal Service Yoda commemorative stamp issue. Stevens Point Mill provided the same papers for the full Star Wars stamp collection, released last year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars film.
The 900-year-old Jedi Master Yoda is the only Star Wars character to receive his own stamp issue. His selection came after the USPS invited the public to vote for its favorite Star Wars character. More than a half-million votes were cast – Yoda edged out Darth Vader for individual honors.
The full Star Wars stamp collection, which depicts 15 images from the movie series, will remain on sale until May 25, 2008, for $6.15 through the USPS. The 20-stamp sheet of the Yoda 41-cent commemorative stamp is available for $8.20 through Oct. 25, 2008.See http://www.storaenso.com/specialitypapers
