Royal Mail is supporting Thinking of You Week with a special postmark, which will be printed on all stamped mail for the Monday to the Saturday of the week.

The message on the postmark will read ‘It’s Thinking of You Week! Send a card to raise a smile.’

Stephen Agar, head of social mail commented, “There is nothing better than receiving a card in the post and opening it up to find out who sent it. Cards spread happiness and joy in a way that can never be matched by emails and texts. We are really pleased to be marking the campaign with a special postmark.”

Over six million items every day are sent with postage stamps – meaning the Thinking of You Week message will be seen by 36 million people during the week.

Sharon Little said, “This is fantastic publicity for Thinking of You Week, I’m delighted that Royal Mail is supporting us in this brilliant way. It will make every card received during the week extra special.”
