New USPS Penguin Stamp

The Penguin Post has learned that there is a Penguin among the recent United States Postal Service release of 10 new stamps. What makes these stamps unique, aside from their design, is the fact that they’re a new kind of Forever stamp. No longer are you limited to a 1-ounce stamp. Now, there are Forever stamps that can be used for postcards, 2-ounce letters and 3-ounce letters. There is also a Forever stamp for a non-machinable surcharge and an additional ounce.  The additional ounce stamp has an attractive Emperor penguin on it and was designed by Carl Herrman of Carlsbad, Calif. Nancy Stahl of New York City illustrated it. Its initial price and value is 22 cents and it will be effective May 31.
