Two Hearts Entwined in Love

June 27th, 2007

The U.S. Postal Service introduces two unique wedding stamps, the latest in its Wedding series. Featuring vines that form the shape of a heart, these stamps were designed especially for mailing wedding invitations and RSVPs and are sure to add an elegant touch to invitations and response cards.

The Wedding Hearts stamps will be available in two denominations to cover both the one-ounce and the two-ounce mailing rates. Each one-ounce stamp is intended for use on the RSVP envelope often enclosed with a wedding invitation. Each two-ounce stamp will accommodate the heavier weight of a wedding invitation with enclosures. The stamps will be issued in booklet form containing 20 one-ounce and 20 two-ounce First-Class stamps.

The artwork on the Wedding Hearts stamps was created by illustrator Nancy Stahl, who based her designs on memories of a wide range of intertwined objects, including silver charms and old-fashioned garden gates. The one-ounce denomination features a light purple background, while the two-ounce denomination features a light pink background.
