About Stamp

On January 7, 2017, in Chino, CA, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Love Skywriting First-Class Mail® stamp (Forever® priced at 47 cents), in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps.

The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 7, 2017.

This new issuance is a continuation of the U.S. Postal Service tradition of creating stamps that celebrate love. The Love Skywriting stamp will add a sweet, romantic touch to your letters and cards, not only on Valentine’s Day, but all year round. The stamp art depicts the word “Love” written in white cursive script against a blue sky studded with wispy clouds. Underlining the word is a decorative swirl of smoke. A small, stylized plane, dwarfed by the giant letters, completes the end of the swirl, with smoke trailing from its tail. Louise Fili designed the stamp, illustrated by Jessica Hische. Derry Noyes was the art director.
