  • A previously unannounced pair of Water Lilies forever stamped envelopes will be issued April 17 and sold in packages of 10 with matching adhesive seals.

On April 17 the United States Postal Service will issue two varieties of Water Lilies forever stamped envelopes in a package of 10.

A set of four Water Lilies forever stamps was issued March 20; two of those stamp designs are being reused to create the two different imprinted stamps on the new envelopes.

The two imprinted stamp designs show the dark pink flower with yellow center and the white flower with yellow center.

The imprinted stamps on the new envelopes, and on the previously issued stamps, use photographs by Cindy Dyer, a graphic designer and photographer whose work has appeared in magazines and newsletters, books, brochures, and convention and trade show materials.

According to USPS spokesman Mark Saunders, the show will host the Friday first-day ceremony in association with a Postal Service team in New York.
