New Forever Stamp ready for retail

Forever Stamps roll off the presses in Buffalo, NY.The issuance of the Forever Stamp is his­toric on several levels. Not only will the stamp always be good for First-Class Mail post­age for a 1-ounce letter, but the stamp itself may prove to enjoy the long­est print run of any stamp. Conceivably, our children’s children could still be using these stamps.

The task of printing more than five billion Forever Stamps was split among the security printing divisions of three printers.

Booklets of 20 stamps are available at a variety of retail venues including vending machines and retail counters. Sheetlets of 18 are available at automated postal centers and automated teller machines.

USPS introduced the stamp at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, PA.
