Celebrate the joys of love with the latest stamp from the U.S. Postal Service® in the ever-popular Love series.
On the stamp, 12 colorful hearts visually express love’s joyful, bountiful nature. The color palette—red, purple, orange, and pink—is intended to create a happy and positive feeling.
How the familiar heart-shaped symbol came to be associated with the human heart, which it does not resemble, is a mystery. However, its connection with love is very clear, as the heart is where people believe feelings reside. Today, wherever it appears—as an artistic motif, in religious symbolism, or as an expression of affection or support—a heart is instantly recognizable as a representation of love, signifying romantic attachment as well as a passion or affection for people, places, causes, or ideas.
The Postal Service™ has successfully captured the essence of love ever since issuing the first stamp in the series in 1973. Though the stamps are released early in the year, they are not just for Valentine’s Day but can be used to deliver love at any season.
Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp.
The Hearts Blossom stamp is being issued as a Forever® stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price.
Made in the USA.
