  • Cut Paper Heart

    The Cut Paper Heart stamp adds another romantic entry to the beautiful Love stamp series. This fanciful stamp takes its inspiration from the papercutting folk tradition brought to America in the 18th and 19th centuries by German immigrants.

    These early precursors to valentines carried declarations of love and sometimes proposals of marriage. The Cut Paper Heart stamps are not just for use on Valentine's Day, but say "love" all year round.

    First day of issue: January 21, 2014 Loveland, CO

    The Cut Paper Heart Stamp is being issued as a Forever® stamp. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price, which is $0.49.


  • Scherenschnitte!

    This stamp art is reminiscent of liebesbriefe ornately cut and painted love letters that are a form of scherenschnitte, the art of "scissor snipping" or "scissor cutting," came to America with German immigrants. Visually stunning, the cutwork is elaborate and intricate, usually depicting birds, flowers, animals, hearts, and even words. Though practiced elsewhere in America, scherenschnitte remains rooted in the Pennsylvania German community.
