In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates pickup trucks, the rugged and reliable work vehicles that Americans have driven for nearly a century. Each of the four stamps in the Pickup Trucks series features one of the following iconic models: the 1938 International Harvester D-2, the 1948 Ford F-1, the 1953 Chevrolet, and the 1965 Ford F-100.
Artist Chris Lyons used Adobe Illustrator to create stylized renderings of the pickup trucks. On each stamp, the name and model year of the truck are featured in the top left corner over the words “FOREVER USA.” Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps.
Pickup Trucks is being issued as a First-Class Mail® Forever® booklet of 20 stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
