SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the joys of love with the latest stamp in the popular Love series, the Forever Hearts Blossom Stamps.
“The Love stamp is traditionally released in time for Valentine’s Day, but it can be used to deliver love for any reason in any season,” said U.S. Postal Service Vice President of Network Operations Robert Cintron during the stamp’s first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony today at the Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art. “In the coming months, the Hearts Blossom stamp will be used to send expressions of love in the mail. And just like true love, this stamp is forever.”
Cintron was joined by Erica-Marie Sanchez, actress, “The Inspectors,” and Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, graphic novelist, “La Borinqueña.”
The Hearts Blossom Stamps shows 12 colorful hearts in a palette — of red, purple, orange and pink — intended to create a happy and positive feeling. Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp.
There are several theories how the familiar heart-shaped symbol came to be associated with the human heart. However, the symbol’s connection to 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, whether it be romantic attachment or affection for people, places, causes or ideas.
The Postal Service has captured the essence of love on stamp artwork ever since issuing the first Love series on stamps in 1973.
Hearts blossom is the latest stamp in the Love series from the U.S. Postal Service. The stamp art features the word love in cursive script below 12 colorful hearts meant to visually express love’s joyful, bountiful nature. The color palette red, purple, orange and pink is intended to create a happy and positive feeling.
