Photogravure - coils of 10,000 from printing cylinders of 456 subjects (19 across and 24 down)

Reason the stamp was issued:  This stamp was issued for use by first-class bulk mailers who sorted their mail by ZIP code into quantities of at least 500.  This step saved the US Postal Service time and money. 

About the stamp design:  When considering a new bulk rate stamp, the USPS wanted a different design than the flags or eagles that had been pictured in the past.  The concept came from an employee of Sheaff Design.  Airbrush artist turned the rough sketch into its present design.  The metallic “USA” shows a reflection of a waving flag.

Special design details:  The three printings of this stamp are all slightly different in appearance.  Stamp #2606 has a light blue background, #2607 has a dark blue, and #2608 has a purple background.

First Day City:  Ther was no official ceremony for the release of this stamp, but it was issued at the Philatelic Sales Division in Kansas City, Missouri.
