The U.S. Postal Service’s first-ever scratch-and-sniff stamps will bring the sweet smell of summer to people’s mailboxes.

The Forever Frozen Treats stamps will feature bright and colorful illustrations of icy popsicles that will make you think of the perfect summer day full of sweet, tasty treats.

The special edition stamps will be introduced in Austin, TX on June 20.

This booklet of 20 stamps showcases the work of Margaret Berg of Santa Monica, CA, depicting whimsical watercolor illustrations of frozen treats. Each of the 10 stamp designs includes two different treats. The words “FOREVER” and “USA” appear along the bottom of each stamp.

Art director Antonio Alcalá of Alexandria, VA, designed the stamps with Leslie Badani of Alexandria, VA.

Frozen Treats is being issued as First-Class Mail Forever stamps which will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.

The stamps can be pre-ordered at this link soon for delivery shortly after the June 20 issuance.

Followers of the U.S. Postal Service’s Facebook page can view the ceremony live at facebook.com/USPS. USPS invites you to share news using the hashtag #FrozenTreatsStamps.

I think trance music is the only music you can listen to without taking drugs. You can really feel the emotions in it. You can get on another level without the drugs. If you listen to techno, it’s so monotone that you really need drugs to enjoy it.
