Introducing The New Global Forever Stamp

One Price for First-Class Mail International 1-Ounce Letters to Anywhere, Worldwide

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the U.S. Postal Service introduced the Global Forever First-Class Mail International stamp. Priced at $1.10 each and offered in a pane of 20, the Global stamp offers a single price for any First-Class Mail International 1-ounce letter to any country in the world. The Global stamp also may be used to mail a 2-ounce letter to Canada.

Customers may purchase the stamps at usps.com/stamps, by phone at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724) and at Post Offices nationwide.

The stamp showcases the beauty of planet Earth with an artistic rendering — a composite of images created from satellite and 3D computer technology data. In this image, the Atlantic Ocean is flanked by North and South America, Africa and parts of Europe. Art director William J. Gicker selected this depiction of Earth by Italian artist Leonello Calvetti. Greg Breeding designed the stamp.

Customers may view the Global Forever stamp , as well as many of this year's other stamps on Facebook at facebook.com/USPSStamps , on Twitter @USPSstamps or on the website Beyond the Perf at beyondtheperf.com/2013-preview . Beyond the Perf is the Postal Service's site for information about upcoming stamp subjects, first-day-of-issue events and other philatelic news.

They may purchase new stamps at their local Post Office, at The Postal Store at usps.com/stamps , or by calling 800-STAMP-24.
