On Saturday, the US Postal Service will celebrate the history of Walt Disney Studio's Ink & Paint Department by dedicating a sheet of 20 Forever stamps featuring 10 classic Disney Villains.
“The Postal Service is highlighting the Disney Villains and the pioneering spirit of the Ink and Paint Department that brought many of these characters to life,” said Brennan. “These Forever stamps are our way of saying Disney Villains will forever entertain us and serve as a tribute Disney’s artistry and storytelling skill.”
The stamps showcase the Queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” Honest John from “Pinocchio,” Lady Tremaine from “Cinderella,” the Queen of Hearts from “Alice in Wonderland,” Captain Hook from “Peter Pan,” Maleficent from “Sleeping Beauty,” Cruella De Vil from “101 Dalmatians,” Ursula from “The Little Mermaid,” Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Scar from “The Lion King.”
Art director Derry Noyes of Washington DC worked closely with Disney Creative Director David Pacheco and the team at Walt Disney Studio's Ink and Paint Department to design the stamps.
They're being issued as Forever stamps that are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail service one-ounce price.
