BEDFORD PARK, Ill. (January 19, 2018) — The U.S. Postal Service celebrates love of all kinds with the new Love Flourishes Forever stamp now on sale at the Post Office.
Love Flourishes is the latest stamp in the popular Love series, which began 45 years ago. The stamp art features a fanciful garden of colorful flowers surrounding the word “Love” written in cursive script. Hand-painted by artist Anna Bond, the flower garden includes stylized roses, peonies and dahlias in pink, coral and yellow, with pale blue-green berries and fold fronds and leaves.
“When it comes to expressing appreciation for the people we love most, nothing matches the mail,” said Central Illinois District Manager Mark Tovey. “We hope the Love Flourishes stamp will help our customers send cards and letters to those they care about with a special touch of affection, and serve as a reminder that no matter what the season or reason, flowers, especially on a stamp, are the perfect way to send love.”
Lansing customers may purchase the Love Flourishes Forever stamp at the Postal Store at usps.com/shop, or by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724). Stamps are also available at the Lansing Post Office located at 18125 Roy Street. The Lansing Post Office is open from 8:30am to 7:00pm, Monday through Friday, and 8:30am to 3:00pm on Saturdays.
