With the release of the Coastal Birds postcard stamps, the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates four eye-catching birds: the red knot (Calidris canutus), king eider (Somateria spectabilis), roseate spoonbill (Platalea ajaja), and magnificent frigatebird (Fregata magnificens). The stamps feature highly stylized, digital portraits of each bird. Feeding on everything from crustaceans and mollusks to insects and fish, coastal birds can be spotted along beaches, rocky coastlines, and mudflats, as well as in lagoons, wetlands, and other saltwater and freshwater habitats. They account for some of the world's largest breeding and migratory populations. The Coastal Birds stamps feature the art of illustrator Tyler Lang. Greg Breeding was the art director. The word "POSTCARD" on the stamps indicates their usage value. Like a Forever® stamp, it will always be equal in value to the applicable price for the price category printed on them at the time of use. The initial price and value for this stamp is 35 cents. Issue Date: June 01, 2015 Art Director/Designer: Greg Breeding

Beautiful stamps, however I didn’t realize until after I purchased they were POSTCARD stamps (about 34-35 cents worth/each) That’s what happens when you skim through when you are looking for something quickly. But they are nice!

Note to people who usually just go to a store and buy a few stamps: these stamps are postcard stamps! Which hold a different value than letter stamps. You will need at least two of these on one letter.

Postcards, letters, cards… The written word received in any personalized sort of manner carries a lot of weight (both figuratively and literally sometimes) in today’s modern world. But now, there’s so many stamp choices available, what can you purchase online to get your penmanship from point A to point B?? Worry not friend, this is the post card stamp you’ve been looking for!

I have never seen these stamps before I ordered them last week on amazon. They are super cute birds, I will order from here on out. Going to the post office can be a headache trying to get stamps that are cute. I dont like though how they dont come in a fold up stamp book, because I love to keep some in my wallet. Still will order them though they are so cute!
