In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service® issues another stamp in its popular Love series, Quilled Paper Heart. Quilling - also called paper filigree - involves rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper, laying them on their edges, and gluing them in place to form intricate designs. The origin of the name "quilling" is obscure, but it might have come from the first tool used to create the paper curls, the base of a feather or quill.

The price of a First-Class Mail Forever stamp will go up starting Jan. 22.

There was a two-cent increase in the price, bringing the total to 49 cents per stamp.

The last time stamp prices increased was January 2014.

The United States Postal Service says stamp prices have stayed consistent, with the average annual rate of inflation since the Postal Service was formed in 1971.
