In an exciting development, Post Offices throughout the United States are currently being inundated with a flurry of new Forever stamps. The Geometric Snowflakes Forever stamps have made their grand entrance, captivating individuals with their intricate designs and timeless beauty.
“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,” said U.S. Postal Service Northeast Area Operations Vice President Richard Uluski in dedicating the stamps. “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.”
Governing the realm of snowflakes, the laws of physics bestow upon each one its distinctive uniqueness, and this captivating essence is beautifully captured in the Geometric Snowflakes Forever stamps. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, each of the four stamps showcases a different snowflake, mirroring the breathtaking patterns formed by millions of ice crystals during a snowfall. The stamp designers drew inspiration from these diverse shapes, infusing their creations with a touch of wonder.
To further accentuate the intricate geometry of each flake, the snowflakes are rendered in vibrant colors: purple, pink, green, or blue. The skillful application of light and dark shades within these hues adds a delightful sense of playfulness to the artwork, creating stamps that are both visually striking and evocative. Just as snowflakes grace the world with their beauty for only a fleeting moment, these stamps serve as a lasting testament to the mesmerizing complexity found within nature’s wondrous creations.
Forever stamps are always equal to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price. Antonio Alcalá and Leslie Badani of Alexandria, VA, designed the stamps.
