U.S. Postal Service Launches Geometric Snowflake Stamps
Posted on October 27, 2015
The U.S. Postal Service has launched its Geometric Snowflakes Forever stamps. There are four different snowflakes featured in the stamps. Each snowflake is a different color and has a different pattern.
The stamps were designed by Antonio Alcalá and Leslie Badani of Alexandria, VA. Each snowflake is drawn in one of four colors: purple, pink, green or blue. The designers were inspired by uniqueness of snowflakes and the beautiful and complex patterns ice crystals form.
U.S. Postal Service Northeast Area Operations Vice President Richard Uluski said at the dedication, "With these four commemorative Forever stamps we’re presenting today, we hope to capture the art and the science of the snowflake and preserve it forever. These bright, cheerful stamps bring a whimsical splash to holiday cards, thank-you notes, invitations, greeting cards and any mailing that calls for a touch of warmth during the coldest months of the year."
The stamps went on sale on October 23, 2015 and can be found at U.S. Postal Service locations and online at usps.com.
