International Christmas Evergreen Wreath stamp by USPS

October 11th, 2013

A new entry in the annual USPS Holiday issues rollout is a Global Forever stamp that depicts an Evergreen Wreath. This international rate stamp offers a single price for any First-Class Mail International one-ounce letter to any country in the world or for a 2-ounce letter to Canada. To distinguish it from domestic rate Forever stamps, it is round and bears the words "Global Forever."

The wreath that graces the stamp art has a base made of a wire metal frame folded around Styrofoam, which was spray-painted green. The designer attached evergreen twigs onto picks and inserted them into the base, rotating the picks to make the wreath full and lush. The decorations are clusters of bright red Nandina berries and pinecones. The wreath is finished with a traditional red bow.
