The United States Postal Services revealed the designs of two stamps promoting the upcoming World Stamp Show-NY 2016, taking place May 28-June 4, 2016, in New York City.
The stamps will be offered in panes of 20 with the two vertical designs laid out in a checkerboard pattern. The two stamps share the same design, with one printed entirely in red, and the other in blue.
The design has no pictorial elements. It has a star inside a circle in the center, with text around the star reading "2016 World Stamp Show" across the top, and "New York City" along the bottom.
Additional design elements include a small tablet centered at the top containing "USA," and a tablet centered at the bottom containing "Forever."
The preliminary design was first revealed at the recent American Stamp Dealers Association Spring Postage Stamp Show, April 16-18 in New York City. Plans call for the stamps to be issued later this year.
