A girl visits the postage stamp factory: Sesame Street’s ‘Love Stamp’ factory visit

Before stamps became stickers, which started in earnest in the United States around 1989, they were printed sheets of paper with water-activated adhesive backing. In 1987, the team at Sesame Street visited the United States Postal Service to see how a stamp, specifically the .22 cent puppy dog Love Stamp, was made.
