In 2001 it's up to Christian Lacroix to design the valentine heart stamps set. One stamp and a souvenir sheet were issued. The souvenir sheet is beautiful. It represents buttons on a tunic, with the heart shaped stamps hanging on it. A much better set than 2000.

Unfortunately, 2002 is a designer-less year. The valentine heart-shaped stamp was done by photograph Yann-Arthus Bertrand.

The designer's valentine stamps are back in 2003 with a set designed by the Torrente fashion house. The souvenir sheet is my favorite, so sleek and sexy.

I love the new Valentine stamps by Hermes! They are available as souvenir sheet, 2 gummed stamps and 2 adhesive stamps. The design is from Hermes scarf designer Zoe Pauwels. A real threat for the eyes and more affordable than an Hermes silk scarf.

How much does those Valentine postage stamps and souvenir sheets cost?

For the basic collection (regular stamps, self-adhesive stamps and souvenir sheet) you will not ruin yourself! The souvenir sheets are at the most 10$ a piece. Don't pay more than that per piece!! The regular stamps runs between 1.50$-3$ a piece. The adhesive version are a bit harder to find and can run up to 5$-8$ (then again, don't pay more than this).

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on May 28, 2011:

Absolutely beautiful once again. They are truly lovely designs. I have yet to do stamps. I tried one design but was turned down on the words redneck so will have to perhaps go with a wildlife theme. Best of wishes to you.

Virginia Allain from Central Florida on February 24, 2011:

Wow, these are so much more exciting than the blah stamps the U.S. Postal service puts out. I'm as patriotic as the next person, but they've really overdone the American flag variations.
