On April 11, 2013, in New York, New York, at the American Stamp Dealers Association Spring Postage Stamp Show held at the New Yorker Hotel, the Postal Service™ will issue a Where Dreams Blossom First-Class Mail® commemorative stamp (Forever® priced at 46 cents) in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide April 11, 2013.
As universal symbols of love and happiness, flowers are often the centerpiece of our most sacred ceremonies and cheerful occasions. With a splash of color and a beautiful bouquet, the Where Dreams Blossom stamp adds a fun and contemporary flair to all kinds of correspondence.
With a stylized bouquet of flowers similar to the design of the 2013 two-ounce Yes, I Do wedding stamp, Where Dreams Blossom is perfect for any occasion, including for use on save-the-date notices, response cards, and thank-you notes. It can also be used for cards and letters sent to celebrate other joyous moments and to deliver comfort and encouragement. As an unknown author observed, “Hopes are planted in friendship’s garden where dreams blossom into priceless treasures.”
Designed by art director Ethel Kessler, Where Dreams Blossom features the work of graphic artist Michael Osborne.
The Where Dreams Blossom stamp is being issued as a Forever® stamp in self-adhesive sheets of 20.
