Stamp Announcement: Winter Woodland Animals Stamps

September 7, 2023


On October 10, 2023, in Woodland, MI, the United States Postal Service® will issue the Winter Woodland Animals stamps (Forever® priced at the First-Class Mail® rate), in four designs, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) double-sided booklet of 20 stamps (Item 684600). These stamps will go on sale October 10, 2023, and must not be sold or canceled before the first-day-of-issue.

Winter Woodland Animals stamps celebrate four beloved animals in settings befitting the season. Each stamp features a whimsical, graphic image of one of four different woodland animals: a deer, fox, rabbit, and owl. The animals appear with details of their habitat in winter, such as a full or crescent moon, snow-covered trees, holly branches with berries, and delicate snowflakes. Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps with Katie Kirk, who illustrated the stamps.
