PICTORIAL POSTMARKS FOR WORLD YOUTH DAY

 DENVER, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Postal Service plans special postmarks on pictorial "cachet" envelopes for four days during the Pope's visit for World Youth Day activities.
 "We will use the 29-cent `Love' stamp with the colorful picture of the world and apply a special postmark on Aug. 12, 13, 14 and 15, which will serve as an inexpensive memento for interested visitors and a memorable addition to philatelists' collections," said Denver Postmaster Michael Flores. The keepsakes will sell for $3 each. Framed collections of all four envelopes will sell for $75 and can be purchased at mobile Postal units or ordered by mail.
 The Postal Service often applies special commemorative postmarks to stamps to preserve in memory important events. The World Youth Day cancellations can also be applied to any 29-cent stamp at no charge for persons wishing to develop their own souvenir.
