On June 10, 2008, in Washington, DC, the Postal Service reissued Hearts special stamps. Carl T. Herrman of Carlsbad, California, designed the stamps.
The Hearts stamps were first issued in 2007 with different background colors and different denominations. Nancy Stahl of New York, New York, based her designs on memories of a wide range of intertwined objects, including silver charms and old-fashioned garden gates. The one-ounce denomination features a light green background, and the two-ounce denomination features a pale peach background. These two stamps were available in two formats: 59-cent (2-ounce rate) pane of twenty pressure-sensitive (PSA) stamps and 42-cent (1-ounce rate) convertible booklet of twenty PSA stamps.
One hundred million stamps were printed in the gravure process by Avery Dennison, (ARV), Clinton, South Carolina.
