The U.S. Postal Service will issue the Patriotic Spiral First-Class Forever stamps in booklets of 10.
This festive and energetic stamp design features 50 blue and red stars spiralling around a central gold star on a white background. The idea for the design was to illustrate a community of stars protectively orbiting a central star that, in an abstract sense, stands for our nation’s steadfast idealism and hope for a perfect union. Antonio Alcalá of Alexandria, VA, served as art director for the project with art and typography by Polygraph, a Washington, DC, design firm.
The Patriotic Spiral Forever stamp will always be equal to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
