About Stamp Series

On April 25, 2014, in San Francisco, CA, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Red, White, and Blue (Forever® priced at 49 cents) definitive stamps, in four designs, in pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) coils of 10,000. The stamps will go on sale nationwide April 25, 2014.

Each of the four stamps features a modern interpretation of a flying flag, complete with six red and white wavy stripes and a handful of five-pointed stars.

Celebrate America with the Red, White and Blue issuance. The designs were inspired by 20th-century American ephemera, such as pins and flags.

Today, the American flag remains a powerful symbol. “In those broad stripes and bright stars, we see the arc of the American story,” President Barack Obama said in his 2013 Flag Day proclamation, “from a handful of colonies to 50 States, united and free.”

Designed for business use, the Red, White and Blue Forever® stamps are being issued in self-adhesive large coils of 10,000. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce rate.

Art director Ethel Kessler designed the stamps.
