On April 28, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is slated to release a green succulent “global forever” international-rate stamp in a pressure-sensitive adhesive pane of 10 stamps.
Green Succulent is a new “global forever” stamp, which can be used to mail a one-ounce letter to any country where First-Class Mail International service is available.
The stamp features a photograph of an Echeveria, a succulent native to the Americas. The project’s art director was William Gicker, and Greg Breeding designed the stamp using an existing photograph by Erika Kirkpatrick.
THREE-CENT STRAWBERRY STAMP
Another spring-themed issue will be available in coils of 10,000 stamps when issued May 5. This three-cent stamp features an illustration of three ripe, red strawberries surrounded by leaves and hulls adjacent to three smaller, green strawberries in various stages of growth. A small white flower from the strawberry plant completes the picture.
Art director Derry Noyes designed this stamp using an existing illustration by John Burgoyne. The first-day-of-issue will be in Acton, Maine.
