Now you can send your mail in the U.S. to Infinity and..Forever, as the United States Postal Service (USPS) issues new stamps to honor Disney/Pixar’s Buzz Lightyear.
Known as the “Go Beyond” stamps, this collection is a pane of 20 stamps arranged in four horizontal rows of five stamps featuring images of everyone’s favorite Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear.
The stamp images include:
- a right-facing, close-up profile of Buzz in his transparent bubble helmet
- a full-body profile detailing Buzz’s gleaming white and green spacesuit, with the bubble slightly extending beyond the frame’s top edge
- Buzz sprinting with helmet retracted, in a three-quarter rightward view, the action accentuated by a foot and elbow breaking through the design border
- a head-and-torso image of the space hero resolutely facing adventures ahead.
All of the designs feature modern, angular, geometric backgrounds in various greens and grayish blue-greens, accentuating the familiar colors of Buzz’s spacesuit along with the phrase “GO BEYOND.”
Postal art director Greg Breeding, used illustrations provided by Pixar Animation Studios, featuring Buzz from the 2022 Disney/Pixar film “Lightyear.”
The “Go Beyond” stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps, which are always equal to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
Currently that price is 60 cents per stamp, so a pane of 20 stamps costs $12.
In addition to the pane of stamps, the USPS is offering special collectible versions of the “Go Beyond” stamp.
Commemorate the beloved character with a Stamp Ceremony Memento.
This collectible contains the First Day of Issue Ceremony Invitation, the First Day of Issue Ceremony Program, a set of four Digital Color Postmark First Day Covers, and a pane of 20 “Go Beyond” Forever® stamps.
For the ultimate Buzz Lightyear fan, there’s a Press Sheet with or without Die Cuts featuring nine panes of stamps.
You can also buy the First Day Covers separately from the Ceremony box, as well as a framed poster commemorating the stamp.
A dedication ceremony for the stamps was held August 3 at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Isaac Cronkhite, the Postal Service’s chief logistics and processing operations officer and executive vice president and dedicating official was joined by Jan Coleman, vice president global marketing partnerships, representation and inclusion, at Walt Disney Studios.
“Buzz Lightyear captured our hearts and imaginations in the first ‘Toy Story’ movie,” said Cronkhite.
“The Postal Service takes great pride in honoring the very best of the nation through our stamp program. And Buzz Lightyear certainly fits that description. The Postal Service is proud to have worked with Disney and Pixar to bring the Go Beyond Forever stamp to both customers and Buzz fans.”
