It is the “… eighth non-machineable butterfly stamp for use on irregularly-sized envelopes, such as square greeting cards, invitations, or announcements”

Another thing to keep in mind is the stamp design is not an exact image of it. 

“The stamp art was created digitally using images of preserved butterflies as a starting point. The result is a highly-stylized, simplified image of a Colorado hairstreak …”

The net of the pricing is 75 cents each stamp and only available in a sheet of 20 so $15.00One can go ahead and pre-order at the USPS Postal Store SKU 121204.

Think of adorning those large square envelopes with this pretty stamp! In the meantime, don’t forget to send your Valentine’s off in the snail mail.   See you back here on Sunday, Valentine’s Day!
