Send your love a special love note through Loveland Colorado's Re-Mailing Program
For 78 years the Loveland Commerce & Loveland Postal Service has partnered to re-stamp the valentines of friends, family and lovers from around the world.
The program was initiated back in the 1940's, as a stamp collection program but shifted to sending love around the world through the re-mailing program. Every element, the cache, verse and card are all created by local poets and artists.
You can send your own Valentine card through Loveland Colorado to get a special stamp, or you can purchase a card online and have it inscribed, stamped and sent directly to your loved one.
To send your valentine through the Sweetheart Valentine Re-stamping program follow these instructions:
Address the Valentine with the recipient’s address
Stamp the Valentine (with the appropriate postage)
Place the Valentine in a larger, first-class envelope (be sure you have enough postage as the letter will be returned to you if you don't)
Stamp the larger envelope and address it as follows:
Postmaster – Attention Valentines
446 E 29th St
Loveland, CO 80538-9998
Make your cards a bit more special by using one of the Forever stamps from the Love/Wedding section of the United Postal Service website.

The Valentine Re-mailing program from the Sweetheart city stamps valentines from all 50 states, and more than 110 Countries. There are over 50 original Valentine Volunteers stamp the envelopes and there is a waiting list of over 100 to help stamp!
If you would like to see these volunteers in action you are welcome to visit the Loveland Chamber during the first two weeks of February. You can visit and see the volunteers stamp the cache’s and cancellation with love and care.
The volunteers do this with love and care and are entertained by local artists that stop by and sing songs. They also get some stretch breaks where they get up and dance! That's why there is a waiting list of over 100.
If you participate in the program by sending a card to be stamped, know that the card will be stamped not only with the Sweetheart City cache and cancellation, but it will be done with love from the volunteers in Loveland.
Verse inside the card:
In any season - spring, summer, winter, fall -
The Sweetheart City has feelings for all.
And especially in February, we wish to say,
Joy, happiness and love to you on Valentine’s Day.
