Send Love Letters to Italy on the Cheap with the Global Forever Stamp

Sending snail mail international no longer requires a lengthy wait in line at the post office. The Global Forever Stamp can now be bought in packs of 20, with each stamp bearing a value of $1.10. As long as you use that stamp, you can send a one-ounce First Class letter to anywhere in the world, without having to wait in line. For letters to Canada, the Postal Service encourages you to go ahead an splurge on a whole two-ounce letter.

The stamp itself is a shot of the globe, but one that happens to be particularly well done. The image was created using satellite photos and 3D imaging programs, resulting in a nice, accurate Atlantic Ocean-centered picture of the planet. The Global Forever Stamp is available for purchase as of today.
