Blossoming Poinsettia 2018 Global Forever Stamps

The Global: Poinsettia Forever stamp can be used to mail a 1-ounce letter to any country where First-Class Mail International service is available. As with all Global Forever stamps, this stamp will have a postage value equivalent to the price of the single-piece First-Class Mail International 1-ounce machineable letter in effect at the time of use. These stamps can also be used domestically.


The stamp art features a photo of a poinsettia, taken from above to capture the beauty of the green leaves, red bracts, and yellow flowers in the center of the plant.


Poinsettias are as much a part of the holidays as evergreens and mistletoe. Tens of millions of poinsettia plants are sold during the season.


The art director for this stamp was William J. Gicker. Greg Breeding designed the stamp with an existing photograph by Betsy Pettet.


The new Global: Poinsettia Forever stamps are being issued in self-adhesive panes of 10.
