About Stamp

On January 20, 2012, in Alexandria, Virginia, the Postal Service™ will issue a 65-cent definitive Wedding Cake stamp in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 20, 2012.

Sure to add a touch of beauty and romance to wedding correspondence, the Wedding Cake stamp, first introduced in 2009, is a timeless addition to the U.S. Postal Service’s Weddings series. Often the centerpiece of a wedding reception, the cake has been a wedding tradition for many generations. This two-ounce stamp features a photograph of a three-tier wedding cake topped with white flowers, their green stems and leaves a delightful contrast to the cake’s creamy white frosting. The stamp is a perfect addition to a wedding invitation or other mailing such as oversize cards or small gifts that require extra postage.

Pastry chef Peter Brett created and designed the cake, which was photographed by Renée Comet. The stamp was designed by art director Ethel Kessler.
