Colorful Celebrations

681004-L0

Celebrate any festive occasion with Colorful Celebrations, a new stamp issuance from the U.S. Postal Service®. The booklet of 20 stamps includes 10 vivid, digitally created designs featuring eye-popping patterns that showcase geometric shapes, flowers, and birds.

Papel picado, an intricate art form that was developed in Mexico, served as the inspiration for the stamp art. The Spanish term translates to “pierced paper.” Crafted with sharp tools and layers of tissue paper, papel picado designs often include birds, flowers, and religious iconography. The elaborate decorations are hung during holidays, weddings, birthdays, and other festivities.

The Colorful Celebrations stamp collection is now available for purchase at usps.com/stamps, at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724) and at Post Offices nationwide.
