I've always wanted to know why they release some stamps only in the "giganto-roll" (like those snowflake stamps). Hopefully, they will decide to issue these for the rest of us.

Donovan Beeson

The snowflakes were even more rarified. They are only for Pre-sorted First Class which is a whole other type of mail, mostly used by big businesses. There was no hope we could ever use them. *cries*

Bethany Lee

Doh! I totally dislike when they do the large rolls only, like the Quill one a while back. I did score some kaleidoscope ones when they were available. LOVE, love. these ferns!

Terry Mercer

I just looked at the USPS store, and they sell strips of 10 stamps and 25 stamps. Hope that helps.

Donovan Beeson

Oh good. They werent there when I checked on Wednesday. Sometimes you have to wait a loooooooooong time. This was rather quick.


Neat! I hope they're as good in print as they appear in that image.


these are great! I wonder why they're not forever...


Oh! Those are nice!

I didn't even know about these. Thanks for sharing!
