U. S. Postal Service releases PIXAR-themed Forever stamps to celebrate new film’s streaming release

On Wednesday, the United States Postal Service released a brand-new Disney-themed series of Forever stamps guaranteed to get patrons’ mail to infinity and beyond.

The new series of Forever stamps is titled, “Go Beyond,” and each pane of 20 adhesive stamps features Buzz Lightyear, the famous space ranger from PIXAR’s Toy Story film franchise, the most recent installment of which is PIXAR’s Lightyear, the “definitive origin story” of the space ranger behind Andy’s favorite action figure.

Isaac Cronkhite, Chief Logistics and processing operations officer with the United States Postal Service says fans have gained a lot from the PIXAR character Buzz Lightyear.

“Buzz Lightyear captured our hearts and imaginations in the first Toy Story movie,” Cronkhite said. “He taught us about heroism, loyalty, and perseverance, and now he is the star of his own feature film.”

The United States Postal Service first announced the debut of the Buzz Lightyear-themed stamps earlier this summer on June 21. The date was chosen so that the announcement from USPS would coincide with PIXAR’s theatrical release of the new Lightyear film. As of Wednesday, however, the new space ranger stamps were finally released to the public and made available for purchase.

The release of the stamps coincided with the streaming debut of Lightyear on the Disney+ platform and in digital formats.

According to Deadline, there are four versions of the new Buzz stamps:

The stamps include a right-facing close-up profile of Buzz in his transparent bubble helmet; a full-body profile detailing his white-and-green spacesuit from the new movie; Buzz sprinting with helmet retracted, in a three-quarter rightward view, the action accentuated by a foot and elbow breaking through the design border; and a head-and-torso image of the famed space hero resolutely facing adventures ahead.

Each stamp has the phrase “Go Beyond” imprinted on it, and the pane of 20 stamps features the words, “From Infinity to Forever.”

The new Lightyear-themed stamps became available on Wednesday–the same day on which a first-day-of-issue ceremony was held at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre located in Hollywood, California.

The “Go Beyond” series isn’t the first stamp series in which Buzz Lightyear has made an appearance. In 2011, the United States Postal Service released a series called “Send a Hello,” which featured five PIXAR films: Ratatouille, Toy Story, Up, Cars, and WALL-E.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
