This 20¢ postcard stamp was issued because of a postal rate change that was scheduled to take effect on January 1, 1995. The yellow background makes it easy to distinguish from the first-class rate stamp with white background. The red “G” on the stamp indicates it was printed by Stamp Venturers.
The United States Postal Service started selling the G rate stamps on December 13, 1994. This series was produced by more printers and in formats than any previous rate change stamps.
