RIVERSIDE, CA — To add a special touch to Valentine’s Day, the Postal Service dedicated two stamps today for couples planning to step up to the altar — the elegant Vintage Rose Forever stamp and the 2-ounce Vintage Tulip stamp. The stamps were dedicated at the American Philatelic Society Ameristamp Expo show.
Both stamps are engraved to provide an elegant feel to wedding invitations and other heartfelt correspondence.
“At the Postal Service, we think tulips — traditionally given as a declaration of devotion — and roses — a symbol of love and affection — add special sentiment to wedding invitations like no other,” said U.S. Postal Service San Diego District Manager James Olson. “In addition to being the perfect way to send wedding invitations, these stamps symbolize the Postal Service’s ability to connect every home and business across this great nation.”
The all-occasion 1-ounce Vintage Rose Forever stamp can be used for wedding RSVP cards and thank you notes, Mother’s and Father’s Day cards, Valentine’s Day cards, birthday cards, sympathy cards, thinking-of-you cards — and for all occasions when a beautiful stamp is fitting. The 70-cent 2-ounce Vintage Tulip stamp accommodates the added weight of RSVPs in invitations for weddings and other celebrations as well as for greeting cards and mailings such as small gifts requiring extra postage.
