Postage Stamps | Quilled Paper Hearts USPS


Happy New Year! I thought I'd share my first postage stamp purchase of the year, the Quilled Paper Hearts, part of the USPS Forever postage stamps. I was so excited when I viewed them online at Stamp News Now. There are so many others I can't wait to get like the 1 cent Apples, finally an eye pleasing one cent stamp in lighter tones. I just hope they will be available in sheets as opposed to a coil of 10,000. For now I think these paper hearts will go on my Valentines mail. Oh man! I wish those ice cream stamps part of the Soda Fountain Favorites collection were to be released soon too, they would be sweet on Valentine's mail.

The new website is getting better and better. More graphics, stamp photos, and they're getting a lot easier to understand as far current stamp pricing. I had a tiny issue about understanding pricing on certain stamps last year, for example I wasn't sure what the rate was for the 2 oz., 3 oz. stamps etc., that I owned and couldn't find their current value clearly on the site. It seemed that every year the postal prices were increasing so I could not keep track of the current going rate for each stamp as they're all Forever postage nowadays..which I actually love because the word Forever on a stamp is so sentimental to me. So I made a little suggestion using their online form thinking that nothing would happen and to my surprise my message was heard! The USPS even went as far as sharing my message to the departments that could make a difference and boy was I amazed! I feel so thankful for all those who assisted me at the United States Postal Service and how they went above and beyond my expectations, how awesome is that for customer service. Now it's so helpful to see the current pricing for each postage stamp on their website. It's helpful for someone like me who likes to use multiple postage stamps in different designs and denominations including vintage ones on my envelopes just to make snail mail a lot more fancy.

Do you like to dress your envelopes up with postage stamps? Which stamps are you getting this year?

  1. Wow, that's so neat that they heard you and did something about it!

    I just bought these same stamps as well. I'm looking forward to the pretty botanical garden ones and the cute pet ones.

    1. Hi Cindy, yes :) I was really impressed by their customer service. Oh my those botanical stamps are a must! And the pets are fun too. I know I'll be getting lots of new postage designs this year, I can't wait. Have a great week!
