We are closing out the month of August, and with it seeing the baton changing from Summer and moving towards Fall and even the Christmas Season with these new stamps!

New in time for this Christmas: Virgin and Child Painting Forever Stamp 2022

The stamp is featuring Virgin and Child, which is a oil-on-panel painting from 16th century. The event for First Day of Issue is going to be on September 22, 2022 at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. 

Furthermore, please note in this next paragraph, I’m including a few links directly to the sources referencing in case wanting to read further on them.

They are in a book of 20 for $12.00 and pre-orders are available at this USPS Postal Store link S_684104.

This is hot off the presses as of this past week, August 23, in the USPS Newsroom Announcement, and also seeing over at the American Philatelic Society News.

“Customers may purchase stamps and other philatelic products through the Postal Store at, by calling 844-737-7826, by mail through USA Philatelic or at Post Office locations nationwide.”

It is really great to see there is going to be a stamp such as this available for the upcoming Christmas Holiday Season.

In addition, there is going to be a Holiday Elves Stamps.   They are available beginning September 15, 2022, and they are now accepting pre-ordering at the USPS Postal Store online in a book of 20 for $12.00.
