Disney Villains will appear on Forever stamps. 10 special items are to be issued by USPS
The United States Postal Service has surprise all stamp collectors by an announcement for a new set of ten forever stamps paying tribute to villains from Disney animated films. This issuance celebrates the rich legacy of the Walt Disney Studios Ink & Paint Department with a sheet of 20 stamps featuring 10 classic Disney villains.
The stamps are already available for pre-order. So, FindYourStampsValue.com encourages our readers to take a chance and to become one of the first philately enthusiasts who will purchase these original items.
Beginning in 1923, Disney’s Ink & Paint Department helped create classic animated films. Its artists brought life to countless memorable characters, including many iconic Disney villains.
Each stamp showcases one of 10 classic Disney villains against a blue background: Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), Honest John (Pinocchio), Cruella De Vil (One Hundred and One Dalmatians), Captain Hook (Peter Pan), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland), Lady Tremaine (Cinderella), Ursula (The Little Mermaid), the Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), and Scar (The Lion King). The words “USA” and “FOREVER” appear in the top right corner or bottom right corner of each stamp and the name of the classic villain and the movie in which the character appears runs along the left edge.
The selvage area features the Queen from Snow White standing in front of an ornate background. The reverse side of the sheet includes drawings of the 10 characters and a quote by each one:
Maleficent: “You poor simple fools! Thinking you could defeat me, me, the Mistress of All Evil!”
Honest John: “If we play our cards right, we’ll be on easy street, or my name isn’t Honest John!”
Cruella De Vil: “So, they thought they could outwit Cruella.”
Captain Hook: “Blast that Peter Pan!”
Queen of Hearts: “Off with their heads!”
(Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), and Scar (The Lion King).
The Disney Villains stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
