Groundhog Day Postmarks

Here is a copy of the cancellation postmark designed by me for the 2001 event. A new artist is selected for this year. If you would like to send cards and letters to friends with the special Groundhog cancellation postmark, mail your stamped and addressed items to:

Jimmy the Groundhog
Sun Prairie WI 53590

in time for THE big day, FEBRUARY 2nd!

Sun Prairie is the nation’s OFFICIAL Groundhog Day Station — where you can have your letters and cards stamped with a collectible cancellation mark (Eat your hearts out Punxsutawney)!

I’m working with the Sun Prairie Post Office to get copies of other Groundhog postmarks. Stay tuned!

  1. As I scanned some postmarks last night, interesting to see that postcard postage has gone up exactly .10 in 10 years! They are .33 now… I remember wayyyy back to when they were .03!!! I am getting old.
