The Cut Paper Heart Forever Stamp.

The Love stamp is a Forever stamp. It will be valid for First-Class Mail postage forever.

The Love stamp series was launched in 1973.

The digital illustration depicts a large white heart enclosing a smaller pink heart with a saw-toothed edge along its left-hand side. Surrounding the central hearts are pink swirls with smaller hearts imbedded in the design, and a ragged-edge motif that echoes the edging on the small pink heart.

The hearts and swirls are contained within a red square that has "pinked" edges, as if cut with pinking shears. A white border frames the entire design.

Art director Antonio Alcal designed the stamp, which features an illustration by Q. Cassetti.

Customers may view the limited-edition Cut Paper Heart Forever Stamp, as well as a preview of many of this year's other stamps, on Facebook at:, on Twitter@USPSstamps or on the Web site:

The conversation on the Cut Paper Heart Forever Stamp continues today and throughout the year on Twitter.
