The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has announced it will issue a “Love Skywriting” Forever stamp on Jan. 7 with a first-day-of-issue ceremony at the Planes of Fame Air Museum at Chino Airport in Chino, Calif.
The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. with a discussion about the Second World War-era Curtiss P-40 Warhawk and how it was used for mail delivery throughout the conflict. A skywriting demonstration will follow at noon.
The Love Skywriting stamp will add a sweet, romantic touch to letters and cards not only on Valentine’s Day but all year round. The stamp’s design depicts the word “Love” written in white cursive script against a blue sky studded with wispy clouds. Underlining the word is a decorative swirl of smoke. A small, stylized plane, dwarfed by the giant letters, completes the end of the swirl, with smoke trailing from its tail.
