June Stamp Releases!

Happy Happy Friday Readers! I'm afraid to say that it's been a slow mail week for me and its partially my fault for not sending a lot last week. The postcards that have come in are pretty neat (lots of great city views), I should have them all photographed and ready to go soon. In the mean time, let's check out the great stamps that are coming out this month!

Mail A Smile
Release Date: June 1, 2012

A follow up to 2011s "Send a Hello" Pixar series, these Forever stamps will feature A Bug’s Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Finding Nemo (2003), and The Incredibles (2004).

Release Date: June 1st, 2012
This One Cent (0.01c) stamp illustrated by  Nancy Stahl shows off North America's most famous wild cat. Found in various terrains (including desert, mountains and forest), the bobcat can live to 12 years of age in the wild!


Release Date: June 7th, 2012

A four stamp release featuring different kinds of bike and riders: a young child just learning to ride with training wheels, a commuter pedaling to work, a road racer intent on the finish line, and an airborne BMX rider.  This Forever stamp is sure to bring some attention to one of America's favorite activities.

Celebrate Scouting
Release Date: June 9th, 2012
Issued as a "Sister" stamp to 2010s "Scouting" issue, this Forever stamp continues to bring attention to the over 100 years of skills and confidence acquired by millions who have participated in the Scouting program.

Edith Piaf and Miles Davis

For Americans the song "La Vie en Rose”about falling in love made Piaf a household name--a feat that many popular singers never could claim. Davis made his name as the forefront of jazz music while continuing to experiment and innovate with all types of music.

Now run out and grab some great stamps to go along with all of those letter that I know you are writing! Thank you to BeyondthePerf for keeping us all up to date on such great releases! :D

  1. Thanks for sharing the upcoming USA stamp releases... very interesting. I really like the design of the scouting stamp: I love the cut-out silhouette of the girl crossed with what looks like a vintage travel poster - it is very striking! :)
