About Stamp

On January 12, 2015, in Kansas City, Missouri, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue a $1 Patriotic Waves mail use stamp, in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 10 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 12, 2015.

Bringing a contemporary vibe to the traditional red, white, and blue, $1 Patriotic Wave is one of two similarly designed high-denomination stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service® in 2015. The other stamp is denominated at the $2 price.

$1 Patriotic Wave features red and blue intersecting lines on a white background in an abstract pattern reminiscent of billowing flags. A portion on the lower right side of the stamp provides white space to display the numeral 1 in red. This unique design lends a patriotic appearance to packages, envelopes, and other mailings.

Designer Michael Dyer worked with art director Antonio Alcalá to create this stamp. $1 Patriotic Wave will be sold in sheets of 10 and blocks of 4 stamps.
