Eastern National Releases New Passport to Your National Parks® Collector’s Edition
Eastern National has released a Passport To Your National Parks® Collector’s Edition to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service this year. The deluxe, expanded version of the Passport To Your National Parks® book has space to collect park cancellations and commemorative Passport stamps for every national park site in the National Park System—to date more than 400. Proceeds from the sale of Passport books and stamp sets are donated to the National Park Service.
The Passport Collector’s Edition is perfect for planning a trip to visit the national parks and for saving memories. Cancellations can be collected at the national parks. These ink markings record the name of the park and date of the visit. Cancellations are free of charge and available at a park’s visitor center. This year, visitors also can collect a special 2016 National Park Service Centennial Passport cancellation stamp at the parks.
Each year since 1986, a series of commemorative Passport stamps has been issued. The annual set of 10 stamps is contained on one handy sheet. The stamps may be detached and placed in the designated areas of the Passport book. The new 2016 commemorative annual stamp sets feature a 2016 National Park Service Centennial stamp as well as four parks that are celebrating their 100th anniversaries in 2016.
Proceeds from the sale of Passport books and stamp sets are donated to the National Park Service. By participating in the Passport program, park visitors are helping to preserve and protect America’s national treasures. The Passport To Your National Parks® Collector’s Edition is printed in the USA and available now for $24.95. The book is 192 pages, 7 1/2” x 10”, and has a spiral binding. It can be purchased online at www.eParks.com, by calling 877-628-7275, or by visiting a participating national park. Wholesale opportunities are available. The Passport To Your National Parks® book, the Passport Explorer Edition, and commemorative stamp sets are also available.
