In 1997, the Universal Monsters and the men that played them were honored with U.S. postage stamps. Before the stamps were released to the general public on October 30, they were first released a month before during a monster shindig at Universal Studios Hollywood. Photos from this event can be found at the Chaney Entertainment website. The amazing artwork was created by artist Thomas Blackshear. Blackshear’s original paintings for Frankenstein’s monster can be seen here and Dracula here.

Here’s a commercial for the Classic Movie Monsters stamps.

A fun set of eleven trading cards were produced called Stampers Saver Cards and featured the actor and the monster they portrayed. You could match up the actor with the monster! Fun for kids, adults and monsters of all kinds!
