WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service will issue the Patriotic Spiral First-Class Forever stamps in booklets of 10 for consumers and self-adhesive coils of 10,000 for businesses. Both formats will be available on August 19 nationwide, and will be issued formally that day in Falls Church, VA, in booklet format, and in Kansas City, MO, in large coil format.
On August 19, 2016, the U.S. Postal Service issued the Patriotic Spiral stamps in Falls Church, VA. This festive and energetic stamp design features 50 blue and red stars spiraling around a central gold star on a white background.
The idea for the design was to illustrate a community of stars protectively orbiting a central star that in an abstract sense stands for our nation’s steadfast idealism and hope for a more perfect union.
Antonio Alcalá art directed the project with stamp design and typography by Polygraph, a Washington, D.C. design firm. This listing is for a cut strip of 50 stamps, cut from a larger roll.
Throughout its history, liberty and freedom have been the defining principles of the United States of America. The stars of our nation’s flag represent fifty separate states united by these principles and the patriots who fought for them.
The Patriotic Spiral forever stamp was announced Aug. 3. It is being issued Aug. 19 in two formats: booklets of 10 for consumers and in coils of 10,000 for businesses. Both the booklet and the coil stamps are self-adhesives.
The booklet format is being issued in Falls Church, Va., and the coil stamps in Kansas City, Mo. Americover is taking place Aug. 19-21 in Falls Church.
Collectors requesting first-day cancels are encouraged to purchase their own stamps and affix them to envelopes. The first-day cover envelopes should be addressed for return (a removable label may be used), and mailed in a larger envelope.
The Patriotic Spiral stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
