Forever Stamps to be Issued May 14

forever stamp

Mailing a letter will cost 2¢ more beginning May 14. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the USPS is issuing a new “forever” stamp, which will sell for 41¢ and can be used for any future one-ounce letter mailing—regardless of subsequent increases in the First-Class rate.

The stamp art features a computer-generated image of the Liberty Bell by nationally acclaimed artist Tom Engeman of Brunswick, Maryland. His previous projects for the Postal Service include stamped cards for Carlsbad Caverns National Park (2002), Ohio University (2003), and Columbia University (2003), as well as the 2003 American Eagle definitive stamp, and the National World War II Memorial stamp issued in 2004.
