Announcing the Plymouth 400 Postal Artwork Contest where artists and aspiring artists alike will have the opportunity to develop the official 2020 commemorative CACHETS.

What is a CACHET? A cachet is "a design or inscription on an envelope to commemorate an historic event".

In past commemorations official “cachets” were created to represent key moments in history. We’re asking YOU to help us create cachets for 2020! Plymouth 400, Inc. and the Plymouth Rock Stamp Club partnered to run this Postal Artwork Contest. We encourage participation from people of all ages and locations as we commemorate the 400th anniversary of Plymouth Colony.
