The deadline is Friday, February 7 for domestic destinations outside of Colorado. Is there a more lovely (and perfect) place than Loveland, CO from which to send your Valentine’s Day cards and love letters? The Sweetheart City has officially started its 74th annual valentine season by accepting cards and love letters for its popular re-mailing program.
This year’s Valentine’s Day postmark features an image of Dan Cupid with the words: “Dan Cupid continues to play his part, Though he doesn’t text or tweet, He knows a Loveland Valentine, Is a sweeter treat. Loveland, Colorado 2020.”
Every year, the sweet program postmarks thousands of cards and letters from around the world, including all 50 states and 110 countries. Oh, what a lovely gesture!
Send your stamped cards and love letters in a larger envelope to:
Postmaster – Attention Valentines
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538-9998.
Remember, you must have proper postage on all of your Valentine cards and letters before sending them to the Loveland post office. Otherwise, your loved ones will not receive your heart-filled words, as they will be deemed undeliverable.
IMPORTANT: Postage is required on the larger envelope for them to be properly delivered to Loveland. Be sure to weigh the larger envelope to ensure you have the proper postage. Otherwise, the envelope will be deemed undeliverable and returned to the sender. Be sure to include your return address, in case there’s an issue. (Without a return address and improper postage, there’s a good chance the package could end up in the dead letter office.)
Here’s the deadline schedule:
For international destinations — Saturday, February 1
For U.S. destinations (outside of Colorado) — Friday, February 7
For destinations (within Colorado) — Monday, February 10
You can also drop off your stamped valentines in-person at the Loveland Chamber of Commerce (5400 Stone Creek Circle) or either Loveland post office (446 E. 29th St. and 601 Cleveland Ave.) in designated drop-off boxes by Monday, February 1o — no larger envelope required.
For those wondering, as of 2019, King Soopers no longer offers any drop-off boxes.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
