About Stamp

On January 18, 2018, in Phoenix, AZ, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Love Flourishes First-Class Mail® stamp (Forever® priced at 49 cents) in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 18, 2018.

The stamp art features a fanciful garden of colorful flowers surrounding the word "Love" written in cursive script. Hand-painted with gouache on paper by artist Anna Bond, the illustration is whimsical and vibrant. The color palette of pink, coral, and yellow, and the choice of flowers: stylized roses, peonies, and dahlias give the art a lush, romantic look that is at once retro and timeless.

The Love Flourishes stamp celebrates love of all kinds: romantic love, friendship, admiration, and love of family. Though the stamps are issued in time for Valentine's Day, love is not something we express only on February 14. These beautiful stamps can be used any day of the year to send love to friends and family wherever they might be.

Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamp with original art by Bond.

Love Flourishes is being issued as a Forever® stamp. This Forever® stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price.
