About Stamp Series

On June 1, 2012, in Orlando, Florida, the Postal Ser­vice™ will issue Mail a Smile commemorative stamps (For­ever® priced at 45 cents) in five designs in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps and a $15.95 Premium Stamped Postal Card Booklet of 20. The stamps will go on sale nationwide June 1, 2012.

Disney•Pixar’s unique characters remind us of our fears and foibles, challenges and victories, and make us laugh while doing so. In 2012, their familiar faces will lift our spirits once again on stamps that remind us it’s always a good time to “Mail a Smile.”

The Mail a Smile stamps feature beloved characters from five Disney•Pixar movies: A Bug’s Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Finding Nemo (2003), and The Incredibles (2004).

This stamp pane is a follow-up to Send a Hello, a 2011 issuance featuring Disney•Pixar characters that grew out of the Art of Disney series issued from 2004 through 2008.

Since 1995, Pixar Animation Studios has won 29 Academy Awards. Responsible for almost every major breakthrough in computer animation, the company continues to reset the bar in technology with every film.

The Mail a Smile stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
