I ordered the Lunar stamps because I like the color combination.
That's my favorite of this grouping. I really hope this year brings a WOW stamp, whatever that means.


Amen to the Lemon and Strawberry stamps!


I appreciate this year’s Flag stamp over last year’s, where I think they went too futuristic. I don’t remember seeing any of last year’s Flag stamps on mail, which means we’ll likely be seeing those available at Staples and grocery stores for years to come.

Yes, I miss the cut paper Lunar NY stamps, too...and this batch of stamps is no big deal.
Bring back Batman!

Meanwhile in Britain we are not allowed to see images of future issues and don't even know the subject of February and March.

I, too, would like to buy lemons and strawberries in small quantities. While I like the idea of a 15 cent stamp, please give us a new design. Who else is ready for a new celebrate or even just a "birthday" stamp?


I cannot believe how un-exciting that love stamp is. (I feel bad for bad-mouthing a stamp, but I mean... that thing makes me sad.) Gregory Hines makes up for it, though. *love him*


It is so interesting to read other people's reactions to these designs. I am super-excited about the Love and Lunar New Year stamps* and have already asked my favorite postal employees to reserve several sheets of each for me as soon as they come in.

*admittedly, that's mostly because of their color schemes


I want the Meyer lemons too!!!!!


Is it possible to still find Anna Bond's *Love* stamps?!! They really are THE best. I wish, wish, wish I had bought a bunch of them before they were gone. Any ideas on where to still get them? Thanks!

You should be able to find those through local stamp shows without problem. Or if you have a local shop, theyll have them too. Theres also ebay, but beware of counterfeits! Theres also shops like Edelweiss Post: https://www.etsy.com/shop/EdelweissPost
