We are delighted today to announce that the Waves of Color stamps will be issued Saturday, December 1, at the Florida State Stamp Show inside the Central Florida Fairgrounds (4603 West Colonial Drive) in Orlando, Florida.

These four distinctive and elegant new stamps will lend a contemporary appearance to packages, large envelopes, and other mailings. The stamps are denominated at the $1, $2, $5, and $10 rates and are available for pre-order now.

Connie Totten-Oldham, USPS stamp development manager, will dedicate the stamps. The ceremony begins at 9 a.m. Hope to see you there!

One thought on “New Waves of Color Stamps Coming Dec. 1

  1. I’m hoping that with the advent of these new high-denomination stamps, that the USPS will eliminate the need for the so-called “zero meter strip” on stamped packages! Otherwise, the “contemporay appearance” these issues will add to packages and such will be laid null by the ugly PVI that postal workers will invariably paste on the postage area so as to partially cover the edges of these stamps. Maybe having a CDS handcancel will suffice as proof that the package was “handed to a postal employee.”
