PARAMOUNT PICTURES TO BE LOCATION FOR STAMPING OF ELVIS PRESLEY POSTAL CACHET

 HOLLYWOOD, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramount Pictures will be the location for a historic stamping of the Elvis Presley postal cachet on Thursday, April 1, the 37th anniversary of Presley's first screen test at the Hollywood studio.
 Beginning at 10 a.m. until about 1 p.m., 1,000 cachets will be stamped with the seal "Paramount Pictures -- Return to Sender Station -- Hollywood, California," which will include the old postmark graphic "Return to Sender -- Address Unknown," no longer in use by the United States Postal Service. The Presley classic song "Return to Sender" was featured in Paramount's 1962 feature release "Girls, Girls, Girls."
 The cachets, created by Jack London Graphics Ltd., of Lodi, Calif., will be stamped and sealed at five locations instrumental in Presley's life, which are:
 1) Jan. 8, 1993 -- "First Day of Issue," Memphis, Tenn.
 2) Jan. 14, 1993 -- "20th Anniversary `Aloha from Hawaii'"
 3) April 1, 1993 -- Paramount Pictures First Screen Test
 4) July 31, 1994 -- 25th Anniversary Las Vegas Hilton
 5) Jan. 8, 1995 -- Presley's 60th Birthday, Tupelo, Miss.
 After all the seals are completed, the cachets will be offered for sale to the public.
 Veteran Paramount producer A.C. Lyles will stamp and seal the first cachet. Other officials at the stamping and sealing event include Ron Anderson, president, Jack London Graphics; Diane Anderson, public relations, Jack London Graphics; Naomi Howison, customer relations coordinator/Sacramento, United States Postal Service; Augustine "Gus" Ruiz, corporate relations, Pacific Area, United States Postal Service; Curt Gabreilson, art director, Jack London Graphics; Sandra Bray, president, Los Angeles Fans for Elvis; Carole Drexler, vice president, Los Angeles Fans for Elvis.
