Signed, Sealed, Delivered: VeVe Partners With The United States Postal Service for NFT release
VeVe is kicking off November with a bang. According to the platform’s Medium page, a new partnership with the USPS and VeVe will see an exclusive stamp NFT release on the VeVe platform. It’ll be the first foray into NFTs for the Postal Service.
The collaboration will be in celebration of Día de los Muertos with four unique NFTs. Series 1 drops on Tuesday, November 2, and features a number of imagery inspired from a Day of the Dead “ofrenda” – offering – according to the detailed release. Offerings honor departed relatives and heroes, represented in the four names of the NFTs.
The first in the series, “Child” is pictured above, and will feature a mint count of 7,666. The remaining three in the series also feature Day of the Dead-inspired ‘sugar skulls,’ with decreasing mint counts. “Child with Hair Bow” will feature 6,666 minted, “Father” will have 5,666 minted and “Mother” will be the rarest in the series with 4,666 minted.
The purchase process will be done via ‘blind box,’ so users cannot select their NFT – it will be assigned at random at purchase. Each NFT is priced at $6.00, though it is not clearly if there is a cap on purchases. Secondary sales will be involved after mint as well. VeVe and the USPS teamed up with Luis Fitch for design and illustration, and brought in Antonio Alcalá as art director.
