About Stamp Series

On July 15, 2016, in Syracuse, NY, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Pickup Trucks First-Class Mail® stamps (Forever® priced at 47 cents), in four designs, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) double-sided booklet of 20 stamps. These stamps will go on sale nationwide July 15, 2016.

In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates pickup trucks, the rugged and reliable work vehicles that Americans have driven for nearly a century. Each of four new stamps features one of the following iconic models: the 1938 International Harvester D-2, the 1948 Ford F-1, the 1953 Chevrolet, and the 1965 Ford F-100. The strong, sturdy 1938 International Harvester D-2 had a distinct barrel-shaped grille and its elegant styling mirrored the look of luxury automobiles of the era. The 1953 Chevrolet, featured large windshields that provided drivers with excellent visibility, a distinctive curvy grille that bulged in the middle, and a six-cylinder engine. The 1948 Ford F-1 included features like the roomy “Million Dollar Cab,” a sharp horizontal five-bar grille, and a six- or eight-cylinder engine. The 1965 Ford F-100 had a new grille that featured 18 small rectangular openings. It also featured what Ford dubbed “Twin-I-Beam” independent front suspension.

Artist Chris Lyons used Adobe Illustrator to create stylized renderings of the pickup trucks. On each stamp, the name and model year of the truck are featured in the top left corner over the words “FOREVER USA.” Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps.

Pickup Trucks is being issued as a First-Class Mail® Forever® booklet of 20 stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
