There are two new USPS Stamps debuting, one today and one tomorrow: Love Flourishes and Meyer Lemons Stamps. The first day of issue is today for the Love Flourishes Stamp. Tomorrow, the Meyer Lemons Stamp is debuting; however, that 2 cent stamp comes in a coil of 10,000 stamps!
“The Love Flourishes First-Class Mail® stamp (Forever® priced at 49 cents) in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps (Item 564700). The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 18, 2018.” … “Love Flourishes is the latest stamp in the popular Love series.”
Perfect Valentine’s stamps – we have several stamps in the “Love” series of stamps in previous blog posts here at AnchoredScraps, including this post on Love stamps from 2016.
“The Meyer Lemons stamp is a new 2-cent definitive stamp that features a whole Meyer lemon next to two wedges of the cut fruit.”
As a reminder, there is a one cent increase that takes effect for the 49 cent Forever stamp on Sunday, January 21, 2018. It will “include a one-cent price increase for the Forever stamp from 49 cents to 50 cents. Postcards and metered letters will also increase by one cent from 34 cents to 35 cents and from 46 cents to 47 cents respectively.”
