Implications - Stamp collectors thrive off of purchasing commemorative stamps as they tend to increase in value over time. By having these unique stamps, the collector feels that the small investment will pay off in the long run. Commemorative stamps also keep the snail-mail business alive, as they appeal to a larger demographic. By creating a unique twist on conventional products, businesses will be able to better-sell products to interested consumers.
