The new Mystery Message stamp will put your sleuthing skills to the test. Featuring bright colors and interesting shapes, the stamp design is a visual riddle spelling out a message. Each colorful square contains a letter in an interesting pattern.
The patterns, though seemingly random, were carefully placed so that when put all together, the message reads, “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!”
Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp.
Mystery Message release ceremony date is July 14, 2021 at Washington, DC.
