Photos: The ten photographs featured on the stamps show iconic winter scenes in the Northern United States.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16, 2020 — The U.S. Postal Service today celebrated the winter season’s majesty and visual mystique by dedicating new Winter Scenes stamps.

The booklet of 20 captures the serenity of snowy seasonal landscapes. The ten photographs featured on the stamps show iconic scenes of winter in the Northern United States. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps with existing images taken by various photographers.

“The winter landscape shines with its special beauty,” said USPS Delivery Operations Vice President Joshua Colin. “The Postal Service shares scenes of that winter allure on these new stamps that hopefully will add brightness, color, and a bit of joy to your cards and letters.”

Five of the stamps feature winter wildlife images against their snowy habitats: a bright red cardinal, a colorful blue jay, two foraging deer, a majestic owl, and a chubby brown bunny. Two stamps feature barns, both a brilliant red that contrasts elegantly with the surrounding snow and evergreen trees.

The landscapes in two of the stamps focus on the beauty of freshly fallen snow; one shows a long lane bounded by tall trees with snow-covered branches, and the other features two towering evergreens covered in snow, highlighted against a cloudy sky and far-off hills. The final stamp depicts the joyous romp of two large brown horses pulling a sleigh through the snow.

The U.S. Postal Service has issued the Winter Scenes stamps as Forever stamps, which means that they are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price in the USA.
