Davis and Piaf Making Waves

The Miles Davis and Edith Piaf (Forever®) stamps are making history. Not only were the stamps the first joint issue with France since 1989, each stamp pane features something very special.

For the first time in U.S. Postal Service history, each of the Miles Davis and Edith Piaf stamp panes include a QR code on the back, linking users who scan the code with their cell phones to songs by, photographs of, and information about both musicians. That’s double the Davis and Piaf all for the price of a pane of 20 Forever stamps!
