Snowflake
Date Issued: 2013-10-01
Postage Value: 10 cents

Snowflake

During the holiday season, these five festive snowflake stamps were issued at the Presorted Standard price (10 cents) for bulk mail users. Each stamp features a photograph of a different snowflake, set against a background of colors that fade from white at the bottom to icy blues and purples at the top. To photograph these snowflakes, fallen snowflakes were rapidly transferred from a cardboard collecting surface to a glass slide and inserted into a high-resolution microscope. Photographs were made with a digital camera attached to the microscope.
