Would you like to show your love for the James Webb Space Telescope in tangible form? It’s possible that the US Postal Service has what you need. The post office will be releasing a JWST stamp that may be pre-ordered starting on August 28 in sheets of 20.
In the end, it’s just a digital image of the telescope against a background of the galaxy, but that can be all you need to show off your love of space in a letter or package.
The USPS omitted a price list. The JWST print, however, will always be worth the one-ounce cost of First-Class Mail because it is a Forever stamp. Then you won’t have to be concerned about using extra stamps in the future. 20-stamp sheets from Forever normally cost $12.
Yes, it is somewhat ironic to use mail stickers made in the 19th century to celebrate cutting-edge astronomy. If you’re interested in visibility, you might wish to purchase a t-shirt or other such items. But consider this: if you’re a stamp collector or just want to add a personal touch to your correspondence, stamps are reasonably priced and they might work.
