Spring 2019 update for The Philosateleian

The United States Postal Service has already issued more than 20 new definitive and commemorative post stamps so far this year, and to make room for them, I’m pleased to announce that the Spring 2019 Supplement (273 KB, 4 files, 11 pages) for The Philosateleian U.S. Stamp Album is now available for your to download and print.

There is one thing I wanted to mention with regard to the 2019 Cactus Flowers page that’s included in this update. You’ll note that the spaces for the stamps are rotated horizontally. That’s because on page 51 of the January 3 issue of Postal Bulletin, the design orientation is listed as “horizontal.” The “Forever USA” text on the stamps implies that they should be rotated vertically, but the Postal Bulletin documentation confirms that the USPS considers that that text runs up along the right side of the stamps rather than across the bottom.

I hope you enjoy this update. Thank you for your interest in The Philosateleian!
