Love stamps are classified as “special” stamps. They are on sale longer than commemoratives, are usually printed in greater quantities, and may go back to press to meet demand. In 1988, the U.S.P.S. began issuing an additional Love stamp, at the two-ounce first-class rate, for mailing wedding invitations with reply cards and envelopes.
