According to the Post Office , "If you want to add any of these extra sentiments to your greeting cards, you can simply address the card to that special person, affix a First-Class Mail postage stamp and put it into a larger envelope, also with postage, address it to "Valentine's Day Postmark, Postmaster," and use the proper zip code. Your envelope(s) should then get that town's postmark.
In order to make sure the greeting cards receive the special postmark and are delivered in time for Valentine's Day, requests should be sent to the cities above by Feb. 5.
