Postal Service to Issue Elvis Presley Stamp

Elvis Presley will be commemorated on a Forever stamp as an inductee into the Postal Service's Music Icon series.


The stamp image will be previewed at a later date. The First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony will take place on the morning of August 12 at Graceland as part of this year's Elvis Week celebration. The public is encouraged to tweet about this news using #ElvisForever.


“Graceland is thrilled to host the First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony for the new Elvis Presley commemorative stamp August 12 here in Memphis, during Elvis Week," said Jack Soden, CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises. "We’re proud that the first Elvis Presley stamp, which we debuted at Graceland in 1993, has become the most popular U.S. commemorative stamp of all time. We look forward to this new stamp ceremony, on the front lawn of Elvis’ historic home, as we welcome Elvis fans and stamp collectors from around the world.”  


Launched in 2013, the Music Icon series consists of beloved musicians whose blend of sound and way of life broke musical boundaries. The first inductees included Lydia Mendoza, Johnny Cash and Ray Charles. Last year's inductees were Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.


The Postal Service previously honored Elvis on a stamp in 1993, which has become the most popular U.S. commemorative stamp of all time. Click here for more information on the 1993 stamp.
