The Dove G-rate Makeup Rate stamp was issued on December 13, 1994, with a value of three cents. This stamp's issuance provided a convenient option for postal customers to use the rest of their 29-cent stamps. By applying the Dove G-rate stamp along with a 29-cent stamp, the new thirty-two cent rate would be fulfilled.
The Dove G-rate Makeup Rate stamp issue was produced by two different printers. The American Bank Note Company produced this stamp in a sheet format with 11x10.8 perforations and in a bright blue color. Stamp Ventures also produced this stamp in a sheet format but with 10.8x10.9 perforations and in a dark blue color.
