The Disney Villains Forever stamps will be dedicated at 1:30 p.m. PDT July 15, during D23 Expo 2017, Disney’s ultimate fan event at the Anaheim Convention Center, Center Stage. The public is encouraged to share the news on social media using the hashtags #DisneyVillainStamps and #DisneyStamps. The stamps may be pre-ordered now at usps.com/shop for delivery shortly after the July 15 issuance.

“The Postal Service is highlighting the Disney Villains and the pioneering spirit of the Ink and Paint Department that brought many of these characters to life,” said Brennan. “These Forever stamps are our way of saying Disney Villains will forever entertain us and serve as a tribute Disney’s artistry and storytelling skill.”  

Walt Disney Studios Animation Research Library and Ink & Paint Department Managing Director Mary Walsh is scheduled to join Brennan at the dedication. Disney Consumer Products Internal Communications Director Jim Babcock will serve as master of ceremonies.

“The Disney Ink & Paint artists, who hand crafted the cels from which these stamps were produced, are thrilled and honored to have been asked to participate in such a fun and unique creative project with the USPS,” said Walsh.

Each stamp showcases one of 10 classic Disney Villains set against a blue background:

First row, from left: the Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Honest John (Pinocchio), Lady Tremaine (Cinderella), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) and Captain Hook (Peter Pan);

Second row, from left: Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), Cruella De Vil (One Hundred and One Dalmatians), Ursula (The Little Mermaid), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) and Scar (The Lion King).

The words “USA” and “Forever” appear in the top right corner or bottom right corner of each stamp and the name of the classic villain and the movie in which the character appears runs along the left edge.

The Art of Animation

Beginning in 1923, as part of Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney’s Ink & Paint Department helped create classic animated films. Its artists brought life to countless memorable characters, including many iconic Disney Villains. One of the first groups of its kind, Disney’s Ink & Paint Department was yet another stop on the road to creating an animated film.

Art director Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, worked closely with Disney Creative Director, David Pacheco and the team at Walt Disney Studio’s Ink and Paint Department to design this issuance.

The Disney Villains from the Walt Disney Studio’s Ink & Paint Department stamps are being issued as Forever stamps that are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail service 1-ounce price.
