The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the favorite outdoor activity of Sailboats with two colorful postcard stamps. According to USPS, “the stamps are whimsical, bright, bold, and modern — featuring illustrations that capture the joyful sensation of being on the water on a beautiful day.”

“Both stamps show boats cutting through the waves at full heel. The first depicts a single boat above royal blue waves, a white swell crashing against the prow. The white mainsail — adorned with a thick yellow stripe — and a pink jib stands majestically above a white, pink, and gray hull, all set against a gray-blue, cloudless sky,” USPS explained.

“The second stamp features two boats racing under full sail. The closer boat sports a teal-and-white mainsail and a pink jib — white spray curls from its white and teal hull. The farther boat has a sleek black hull, and a white mainsail tipped with red. Antonio Alcalá is the art director,” USPS added.

The U.S. Postal Service has also issued 10 Snowy Beauty Forever stamps in booklets of 20.

USPS states, “Gardens are places of beauty no matter the season. Even as the days grow short, some hardy blooms brave winter’s chill. Snowfall only heightens their splendor, serving as the perfect foil for their radiance.”

“Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps with original art by Gregory Manchess. The artist started with digital studies, then created the finished images with oils on the panel. The result is a set of beautifully illustrated blooming winter wonders: camellia, crocus, hellebore, winterberry, pansy, plum blossom, grape hyacinth, daffodil, ranunculus, and winter aconite,” USPS elaborated.
