In 1995, demand for self-adhesive or "peel and stick" stamps, as they became popularly called, increased dramatically. As a result, production of self-adhesives in 1995 more than tripled the 2.4 billion which were released in 1994. To meet consumer demand, production of the self-adhesive version of the 32-cent Peaches and Pear stamps jumped from 800 million to 1.4 billion!
Like the Flag Over Porch self-adhesives released earlier in the year, the Peaches and Pears self-adhesives feature simulated perforation die cuts. In addition to the pane and coil self-adhesive formats, the Peaches and Pears were issued in non-adhesive booklets as attached pairs.
