Sure to add a touch of beauty and romance to wedding correspondence, the Wedding Cake Stamps, first introduced in 2009, is a timeless addition to the U.S. Postal Service’s Weddings series.
Often the centerpiece of a wedding reception, the cake has been a wedding tradition for many generations. This two-ounce stamp features a photograph of a three-tiered wedding cake topped with white flowers, their green stems and leaves a delightful contrast to the cake’s cream-colored frosting. Wedding Cake is a perfect addition to a wedding invitation or other mailing such as oversize cards or small gifts that require extra postage.
The self-adhesive stamp is sold in sheets of 20. Pastry chef Peter Brett created and designed the cake, which was photographed by Renée Comet. The stamp was designed by art director Ethel Kessler.
These stamps came in two varieties: one that says “70 cent” and one that says “two ounce” on the stamp. Both are equal to the two-ounce rate of 70 cents as of January 2019.
