WIU "stamping" itself on your mail

Western Illinois University wants you to "think purple."

The university is printing sheets of U.S. Postal Service stamps with its logo for first class letters and for postcards.

School officials say the stamps are a marketing tool, not a fundraiser.

You can purchase your own sheet of 20 Think Purple WIU postage stamps at the University Union Service Center and online through the WIU Alumni Association.
