wedding cakeLOUISVILLE, KY — The Postal Service reissued the Wedding Cake stamp today in a 66-cent version to accommodate the 1-cent price change that goes into effect Jan. 27.

Available in panes of 20, customers may purchase the stamps at usps.com/stamps, by phone at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724) and at Post Offices nationwide.

The stamp was dedicated in Louisville during the American Philatelic Society’s AmeriStamp Expo at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

The Wedding Cake stamp, introduced in 2009 and sold at the two-ounce price, accommodates the heavier weight of an invitation, as well as other mailings such as oversize cards or small gifts that require extra postage. The stamp art features a photograph taken by Renée Comet of Washington, DC, of a three-tier wedding cake topped with white flowers. The cake was created and designed by pastry chef Peter Brett of Washington, DC. Art director Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, MD, designed the stamp.
