2021 Message Monsters

  • Pane of 20 included dozens of stickers to personalize the stamps with hearts, hats, voice balloons, flowers, and thought bubbles.


Stamp Category: 
Commemorative
Value:  58¢ First Class Mail Rate (Forever)
First Day of Issue:  September 24, 2021
First Day City:  Topeka, Kansas
Quantity Issued:  18,000,000
Printed by:  Banknote Corporation of America
Printing Method:  Offset
Format:  Panes of 20
Tagging:  Phosphor, Block Tag

Why the stamp was issued:  To encourage people (especially children) to have fun with sending mail or even collecting stamps.

About the stamp designs:  Each includes a playful illustration of a different monster by Elise Gravel.

Special design details:  The pane of 20 included dozens of stickers in the selvage to personalize the stamps with hearts, hats, voice balloons, flowers, and thought bubble.

First Day City:  The First Day of Issue Ceremony was held in Redbud Park in Topeka, Kansas.

History the stamp represents:  In 2021, the USPS issued a set of four Forever stamps picturing Message Monsters.  The childlike designs were created in collaboration with Canadian children’s author Elise Gravel to help get kids more interested in stamps and mailing letters.

The 2021 Message Monsters stamps are also a great opportunity for parents or grandparents to introduce children to the fun of stamp collecting.  After all, what could be more appealing to children than stamps picturing colorful cartoon monsters?  Especially since the stamps come with stickers children can further decorate with.

It's an opportunity to take a trip to your local post office and show the children in your life all the stamps they can get right now.  Kids are sure to have lots of questions about the post office and how mail works, and that’s your chance.  You can share with them what the USPS does now as well as how mail used to work many years ago.  You can even talk about how you began collecting stamps and why you’ve stuck with it all these years.  Be sure to mention all the controversial stamps you’ve heard about, seen, or even owned at one time.  Many children don’t know about all the wild news stories stamps have sparked over the years.

Children might laugh at how mail used to be delivered and how certain stamps became famous.  But who knows?  It could be the conversation they remember years down the road when they’re showing their stamp collection to their own children or grandchildren.
