Postal Stamps released in 2022

It’s already the latter half of the year 2022. 2022 is passing, while 2023 is coming soon. Looking back there are many changes within nine months, including discovery, disaster, and disease. Except for all these,  what has happened with USPS postal stamps in 2022?

Let’s take a look back at memorable moments!

In January – 6 postal stamps with new designs were released!

In January, USPS released five postal stamps forever:  Lunar New Year, US Flags Forever Stamp, Year of the Tiger, Love Flowers Forever Stamps,  and Edmonia Lewis Stamps and  Blueberries 4¢ Stamp.

It is worth noting that 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. Accordingly, USPS release the postal service stamps featuring Tiger. The Tiger is the third of the 12 zodiac animal signs related to the Chinese lunar calendar.  

 Also, in January, a new set of flag postal stamps forever were released. More details can be seen in our past post.

In February – 3 sets of postal stamps were added

USPS Stamp released Palace of Fine Arts $26.95 Express Mail Stamp(1 design), Butterfly Garden Flowers Nondenominated Stamp (5¢ assigned value) (2 designs), and Monument Valley $8.95 Priority Mail Stamp (1 design).

My favorite USPS postal stamp set is  Monument Valley $8.95 Priority Mail Stamp.

The priority Mail stamps celebrate Memorial Valley, located on the Utah-Arizona line.

Material eroded from the early Rock Mountains was deposited layer upon layer for hundreds of millions of years. Through the wear and tear of simple layers of soft and hard rock, the natural wonders of today’s historic Valley unfold slowly. From the postal stamp, we can’t help but praise the magic of nature.

In April – 2 postal service stamps were released by USPS

USPS released Flags on Barns Presort Standard Rate Stamps  (4 designs) and George Morrison Forever Stamps (5 designs).

The flag is always an enduring element in the design of US postal stamps. In Flags on Barns Presort Standard Rate Stamps, painted flags can be found on barns, which is already a normal situation in the US. The barn sits in a landscape inspired by the seasons and different regions of the country, which is designed and illustrated by Stephanie Bower. Antonio Alcalá was the art director.

In May – 3 postal stamps forever were released

USPS Stamp released Eugenie Clark Forever Stamp (1 design), Women’s Rowing Forever Stamp (2 designs), and Mighty Mississippi Forever Stamps (10 designs).

This month is kind of sporty based on the feature of the stamps. Two USPS postal stamps forever are related to the sport.

Eugenie Clark Forever Stamp features the lady Eugenie Clark (1922-2015), who is well known as the “Shark Lady,” a pioneering marine biologist. She spent her career working tirelessly to change public perception about sharks and try her best to preserve marine environments around the world. The stamp art features a digital collage, including a photograph of Clark and a lemon shark.

In June – 2 postal service stamps were added

USPS released Distinguished Americans, Katharine Graham, Two-Ounce Stamp (1 design), and Floral Geometry $2 and $5 Rate Stamps (2 designs).

After Eugenie Clark, another woman Katharine Graham (1917-2001), was featured. She is the first female head of a Fortune 500 company and a pivotal figure during turbulent moments in American history. The stamp is inspired by the oil portrait of Graham, who was at the height of her influence in the 1970s when she was the owner and president of The Washington Post Co. and publisher of the company’s flagship newspaper. Lynn Staley’s original design for the stamp was used by Art director Derry Noyes.

Anne Frances Robbins, the future First Lady of the United States, was born on July 6, 1921, in New York City. In 1952, she married Ronald Reagan, the president of the Screen Actors Guild of America. She served as First Lady with her husband from January 1981 to January 1989 during his two terms in office.
