License Spotlight – Day 2: Peanuts


Who doesn't love Snoopy?! Charles Shultz, the mastermind behind Snoopy and the Peanuts characters, is one talented man. He's also one of the most licensed! Peanuts debuted in seven newspapers in 1950 and sold into its 2000th newspaper in 1984. It's one of the world's most recognized comics with over 17,000 original strips published. At PSA Essentials, we are so happy to have licensed the adorable family. We have 8 Peel & Stick stamp packs for Peanuts – there's something for everyone. See them all here: http://www.psaessentials.com/peanuts.htm

Designer Julia Aston used stamps from Peanuts Beagle Scout here. What makes the stamps extra special is the way she's colored them up! It really brings the characters to life. She's also stamped "Gone Fishin'" from an original design by PSA Life's A Beach!



The next card is about the cutest thing I have ever seen…. Here's Snoopy on his typewriter with the sentiment "Miss You". I would love to send this to a family member who isn't nearby. I am thinking of my nephew's Jack, Brendan & Kevin who live in Chicago.




Up next, Julia created this "Cowabunga" card. Julia did something really cool here- she stamped with the outer ring from Peanuts Cowabunga Peel & Stick stamps, and added the inner sentiment "Live from the Moment" from PSA Dare to Dream. This is such a great example of how our stamps are interchangeable! And how cute is the Snoopy surfing?


See closer here how interchangeable they are. The outer ring on the above card is from Cowabunga:
And the inner sentiment, "Live for the Moment" is from PSA Dare to Dream.  I love these cards today and am so happy to share Julia's great work!

  3. I love them all, but especially the one where Snoop is typing. He's so human, until you put him in front of a typewriter---that reminds me that he's a D O G . I find it hilarious!
