Benny weighs in on the Forever Stamp

The Forever Stamp.

I like that idea. It’s kind of timeless – like me.

No one likes changes to prices, but it’s a part of life. I was buying feed for my horse the other day and spent almost $4 a bucket!

But this Forever Stamp is something I should have thought of back in the day. Let’s see – postage in my day went for 2 pence, which is worth about $640 in today’s prices.
So that would have been a great deal. I’ll buy a whole bunch and in another 300 years, who knows what they’ll be worth.
What do you think about the Forever Stamp?

The LIBERTY BELL demonstrates what this country stands for. It's a perfect symbol.

Is there a reason they are only printed in books? I have MANY customers that want them in a roll. I know I read somewhere that they are not planning to change the format, but I'm just wondering why???

A little bird once whispered in my ear that the reason they don't issue them in the roll is that they don't want to make the stamp too "acceptable." Most people like the rolls and do not prefer to use the books. So we look good by offering the forever stamp...but we don't allow the customer to stock pile large numbers of rolls.
