The Postal Service just released the Go Green stamps. They are part of the series of stamps that highlight various social awareness issues.
The stamps are designed by Eli Noyes. They are purposefully whimsically and meant to be friendly -- not preachy, according to the Beyond the Perf.

What do you think about the stamps? Comment here.
The stamps are fine but why did we get so many take one flyers to put out in the lobby? 25 would have been more than enough for my office. It seems like a big expense and not too green since most of them will be thrown away or recycled.
Why are there 16 stamps? Why not 10, 12 or 20? Some consistancy would be nice. And I agree with way too many flyers being sent out to my post office.
I received over 12 packets of the flyers. 2 would have been plenty. I will have to recycle later this year. The stamps are a hit in my post office already.
I think its ironic.....the stamp promotes "green" while the packaging isn't. Like stated above...500 handouts for small rural offices?? Why 16 stamps to a page....why not 30 to save resources?
I'm tired of "green" anything, abd sceptical of any company using it to make sales.
Most of my customers don't like stamps that are bigger than the liberty bell forever stamps. 16 stamps to a page make it more complicated to answer the question, "How many stamps are on a page?"
I dont like them. To me and many others Go Green also means saving paper, even our monthly bills encourage us to save a stamp and the paper billings by paying online. I feel like these stamps are sending the wrong message to our customers. Even though the postal service was very careful not to include this as one of the images on the stamps I still don’t like the idea of the stamp.
They remind me of the old Ecology stamps that were issued in the 70's...remember them? Same campaign, different name.
I, too, am annoyed at the 16 stamps on the sheet. It's difficult enough in my manual office to keep track of all the Forever stamps I sell. This sort of thing just makes it harder!
They are wonderful, they add a little hope for spring!
I like the stamps. They are not the first ones to come out on a sheet of less than 20. They are priced by the sheet, not the individual stamp.
My customers don't mind 10 stamps to a sheet, but other odd numbers
(12, 16) really annoy them. These stamps aren't selling well in my very rural area "No, I don't want the hippie stamps". The amount of handouts for my small office was ridiculous, especially given the
"Go Green" message.
I agree with some of the other comments. Guessing I received around 500 flyers. Probably only needed 20 at the most. Also know when our customers hear "go green" they think of doing away with paper-doing everything online. Not a wise use of our money.
Sixteen, twenty whatever. The message is still one that we need to promote if we want our grandchildren and their children to be able to inhabit this earth.
I've had lots of customers decide against these stamps because there's only 16.
"Go green" ...
whatever happened to "global warming"?
