SUGGEST A RON PAUL POSTAGE STAMP - How can I submit my idea for a new Stamp?

Almost all subjects chosen to appear on U.S. stamps and Postal stationery are suggested by the public. Each year, Americans submit proposals to the U.S. Postal Service™ on literally thousands of different topics. Every stamp suggestion is considered, regardless of who makes it or how it is presented. On behalf of the Postmaster General, the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) is tasked with evaluating the merits of all stamp proposals. Established in 1957, the Committee provides the Postal Service™ with a "breadth of judgment and depth of experience in various areas that influence subject matter, character, and beauty of postage stamps."

Ideas for stamp subjects should be mailed to:


Subjects should be submitted at least three years in advance of the proposed date of issue.


This allows for sufficient consideration and for design production, should the subject be approved.

More information on this subject can be found at Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee website. 

What are the Criteria for Stamp Subject Selection?

The basic criteria used in determining the eligibility of subjects for commemoration on U.S. stamps and stationery includes: 

  1.  It is a general policy that U.S. postage stamps and stationery primarily will feature American or American-related subjects.  Other subjects can be considered if the subject had significant impact on American history or culture.

  2. The Postal Service will honor living men and women who have made extraordinary contributions to American society and culture.  These remarkable individuals through their transformative achievements in their respective fields have made enduring contributions to the United States of America.

  3. Commemorative stamps or postal stationery items honoring individuals usually will be issued to celebrate births, anniversaries, and significant contributions.

  4. A memorial stamp will be issued honoring deceased U.S. presidents following death.

  5. Events of historical significance shall be considered for commemoration on anniversaries in multiples of 50 years.

  6. Themes of widespread national appeal and significance that reflect our nation’s inclusiveness, events and persons will be considered for commemoration.  Official postal cancellations, which may be arranged through the local postmaster, may be requested for significant local events or commemorations.

  7. Statehood anniversary commemorative postage stamps will be issued at intervals of 50 years from the date of the state's first entry into the Union. Requests for observance of other state-related or regional anniversaries will be considered as subjects for postal stationery at intervals of 50 years from the date of the event.

  8. Requests for commemoration of universities and other institutions of higher education shall be considered for stamped cards in connection with the 200th anniversaries of their founding

  9. No stamp shall be considered for issuance if one treating the same subject has been issued in the past 50 years. The exceptions to this rule are traditional themes such as national symbols and holidays.

  10. The stamp program commemorates positive contributions to American life, history, and culture; therefore, disasters will not be commemorated on U.S. postage stamps or stationery.

  11. Due to the limitations placed on annual postal programs and the vast number of such locales, organizations and institutions in existence, it would be difficult to single out any one of the following for commemoration:  government agencies, localities, non-profit organizations, associations, and similar entities. Stamps or stationery items shall not be issued to honor religious institutions or individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings or beliefs.

  12. Stamps may be issued for the major military services (Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marines) on 50-year anniversaries (or multiples) of their current organizational structure. Stamps for the major service academies will be considered on a case-by-case basis for 50-year anniversaries (or multiples). Due to the large number of individual units with the military services, stamps will not be issued to honor individual groups or units within the military.
