U.S. Postal Service to Issue New Presorted Star and Global Stamps

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service today revealed two additions to the 2020 stamp program: Presorted Star, a convenient stamp for large-volume mailers, and Chrysanthemum (Global), an international rate stamp.

Presorted Star

In 2020, the Postal Service will offer the Presorted Star stamp, sold in self-adhesive coils of 3,000 and 10,000, intended for use by business mailers. This new stamp celebrates the beloved American Stars and Stripes by focusing on its vital components. The asymmetrical design includes one large white star, two white and three red stripes, and a brilliant blue background, as well as lettering and three small stars in gold. Greg Breeding was the art director and Matthew Pamer was the designer for the stamp. It will be issued Feb. 3. No dedication event is planned.

Customers may purchase stamps and other philatelic products through The Postal Store at usps.com/shop, by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), by mail through USA Philatelic, or at Post Office locations nationwide.
