The mini banner includes 10 chipboard pennants in 4 different shapes with 9 jump rings for hanging. Use the mini banner as a decoration for your parties and get-togethers this summer for many “banner” days!

2. Military Stamp Sets: Let’s Get Patriotic—Stamp Style!

With Flag Day, Independence Day, Canada Day, and more right around the corner, now is the perfect time to celebrate military service and promote patriotism with our three new patriotic stamp sets—only available for a limited time from June 1 – July 31, 2013!

One B-size stamp set and two D-size stamp sets were created specifically to celebrate independence and freedom. The best part is that $5 from every patriotic D-size stamp set and $3 from every patriotic B-size stamp set sold will benefit a military-support charitable organization.

Donations in the US will be made to the USO, the leading, most recognized military-support and services organization in the country. Donations in Canada will be made to the Canadian Hero Fund, which supports spouses and children of fallen Canadian military troops by helping provide post-secondary education funds.
