Put your sleuthing skills to the test with the bright colors and interesting shapes of the new Forever Mystery Message stamps. The U.S. Postal Service offers intrigue and excitement for customers with a stamp that needs deciphering to be fully appreciated.
The stamp had a playful look about it, and delivered a straightforward puzzle, which you can solve here:
As a puzzler, I couldn’t help looking at this and wishing that the colors or dots indicated some kind of additional layer and that “more than meets the eye!”. It was an invitation to dig deeper rather than the conclusion itself.
Beyond that, the USPS website goes out of its way to spoil its own puzzle, which seems like it must be a metaphor of some sort.
On the other hand, I’m just happy that the USPS is offering stamps that speak to puzzlers. So I’ll cut the snark and be thankful.
The new Mystery Message Forever stamps are designed to put your sleuthing skills to the test! Featuring bright colors and interesting shapes, the stamp design is a visual riddle spelling out a difficult-to-discern message. Each colorful square contains a letter in an interesting pattern.
The seemingly random patterns were carefully placed so that when put all together, the message reads (here is a “spoiler alert”): “More Than Meets the Eye!”. The reverse side of the pane also provides the solution.
Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp. The Mystery Message stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp.
This Forever stamp will always be equal to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
