2015 Valentine and Wedding Stamps

I wanted to share some new 2015 stamp releases at the USPS. Last week at the post office I seen a glimpse of these new heart stamps on a poster and was excited to actually see one up close.  They are a bit different, but I love the design. How perfect for a Valentine or wedding invitation. They are described as: Forever Hearts stamps depicts the ancient association between eternal love and the heart.

 If the Forever Heart stamp doesn't cover the postage on your wedding invitation, these will! The drawings are details from engraved plates originally created by naturalist artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717). A small, deep crimson heart on each stamp brings a dash of color to the designs and makes them a natural pair. These stamps were printed using the intaglio printing technique. These Vintage Tulip stamps will be released on February 14th.
