Newly Designed Stamps

Let's Hear It for Imaginative Designers!

On May 8, 2009, in Washington, DC, the Postal ServiceтДв issued a 44тАУcent, Love: King and Queen of Hearts definitive stamp with two different designs in a convertible booklet of 20 stamps. The stamp was designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, and Jeanne Greco of New York, New York.

Since the beginning of its popular Love stamps in 1973, the U.S. Postal Service┬о is paying clever tribute to the worldтАЩs favorite тАЬgameтАЭ with the issuance of the King and Queen of Hearts, the latest stamps in the Love series. Artist Jeanne Greco, New York, New York, created the art on her computer for the two stamp designs, one showing the King and one showing the Queen, by using images from 18th Century French playing cards as a reference.

Over the years, the Love stamps have featured a wide variety of designs, including heart motifs, colorful flowers, and the word тАЬLOVEтАЭ itself.
