“Love: True Blue” stamp to be issued today

On the first business day of the New Year, the Postal Service is issuing its first 2006 stamp.

“Love: True Blue,” a First-Class nondenominated stamp will be issued today in Washington, DC.

“The Love Stamp has become an important part of the Postal Service’s commemorative stamp program,” said Stamp Services Executive Director David Failor.

“Birth announcements, Mother’s Day wishes, Valentine’s Day cards and other written expressions of our love need the right stamp to be complete. The True Blue stamps will certainly extend expressions of love to family and friends.”

The stamp, designed by Craig Frazier of Mill Valley, CA, goes on sale nationwide today in pressure-sensitive adhesive booklets of 20. Denominated “True Blue” stamps are expected in March.

“True Blue” stamps are available at Post Offices nationwide, online 24/7 at The Postal Store, or by telephone at 800-STAMP-24. And don’t forget — prices change Sunday, Jan. 8.
