The Postal Service dedicated Love Flourishes, this year’s Love stamp, Jan. 18 in Phoenix.
“When it comes to expressing appreciation for the people we love most, nothing matches the mail,” said Controller and Vice President Maura McDevitt, who led the dedication ceremony.
“We hope the Love Flourishes stamp will help you send cards and letters to those you care about with a special touch of affection, and serve as a reminder that no matter what the season or reason, flowers, especially on a stamp, are the perfect way to send love.”
The ceremony was held at the Phoenix Convention Center during Creativation, a trade show organized by the Association for Creative Industries. Other speakers included Mark Hill, the association’s president and chief executive officer; Arizona District Marketing Manager Michael Flores; and Anna Bond, the stamp artist.
The new stamp is a continuation of the Love series, which began in 1973.
The stamp art features a garden of colorful flowers surrounding the word “Love” written in cursive script.
The Love Flourishes stamp is available at Post Offices and usps.com. The Postal Service’s news release has more information.
