JCPThe introduction of a new stamp may seem old fashioned these days with email and print-at-home postage, but I am really excited about today’s release of the new Johnny Cash stamp. I am a big fan of Mr. Cash and can’t wait to add these to every letter and card I send. The new Johnny Cash stamp is a “forever” stamp which means no matter what the future holds for the cost of a first class stamp – you can use these forever.

About the Johnny Cash (Forever) Stamp: “Johnny Cash (1932-2003) is best remembered internationally as a country music artist, but we feel his influence just about everywhere—from rock and folk to blues and gospel. The Johnny Cash (Forever®) stamp is being issued this year as part of the exciting new Music Icons stamp series. Resembling the appearance of a 45 rpm record sleeve, the square stamp features a photograph taken by Frank Bez during the photo session for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash (1963). In the photo, Cash stares out at the viewer through a veil of shadow, his brooding expression fitting for an artist known to so many people simply as the Man in Black.”

I can’t believe it has been ten years already since Mr. Cash passed away. But the Man in Black lives on with his enduring music and with honors like this stamp. I have ordered a ton of these stamps which I plan on using… forever.
