« New Postage Rates | Main | Chicago Postcard Museum Postcard Received »

I really like the palette of the postcard stamps -- it's different from most of the other stamps they have right now. If you scan down the stamp page at the USPS site, they really stand out!

However... they got a little Georgia O'Keeffe-y with that fruit. Not her style, but the whole, "This fruit/flower seems to resemble something else..." feeling.

Especially the guava.


I must be in the minority because I actually like the new stamps, mostly the kiwi and the star fruit. I also like that there are five different stamps. I send a lot of postcards and I needed some variety.


i love the new postcard stamps. they're not so much o'keeffe, but more reminiscent of Frida Kahlo's still lifes.


I personally love the new postcard stamps.

Love the vivid colors of the postcard stamps. Very fun!


"i love the new postcard stamps. they're not so much o'keeffe, but more reminiscent of Frida Kahlo's still lifes."

I think that the earlier poster was referring to the stamps' resemblance to a certain part of the female anatomy when she compared the images to O'Keefe.

The resemblance is really obvious and hilarious to my husband and me--they are the only postcard stamps available right now, so they will be going out on our RSVP cards for our wedding.


I have to send them out on my RSVP cards for our wedding and at least it isn't Frank, but I wish I had more options. Thank goodness we are having a destination wedding.

I'm curious to know if anyone who has sent them out with their wedding invitations, what kind of responses did they receive.
