    Scratch-&-Sniff Stamps, Yes

    Scratch and sniff stickers were all the rage back in the 1980s and now the U.S. Postal Service is bringing back the concept with stamps that will be available next month.

    (Published Tuesday, May 22, 2018)

    Letter writers will soon be able to express their sentiments in words and smells.

    The U.S. Postal Service announced Monday that it will soon issue its first collection of scratch-and-sniff stamps, Frozen Treats Forever. The stamps feature illustrations of ice pops.

    The agency said the stamps will "add the sweet scent of summer" to letters.

    The 20 stamps depict watercolor illustrations by California artist Margaret Berg. Each of the 10 stamp designs includes two different treats.

    The words "FOREVER" and "USA" appear along the bottom of each stamp.

    The stamps will be issued on June 20 at the Thinkery children's museum in Austin. The stamps can be pre-ordered here.
