42c Latin Jazz single
- On September 8, 2008, in Washington, DC, the Postal Service issued a 42-cent Latin Jazz commemorative stamp in a pressure-sensitive adhesive pane of twenty stamps. Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, Arizona, designed the stamp.
- With the issuance of the Latin Jazz stamp, the United States Postal Service celebrated the rich musical heritage of the United States of America. The stamp features a bold graphic design by San Francisco-based artist and Latin jazz fan Michael Bartalos. The design conveys the multicultural aspects of the music, its percussive and improvisational nature, and its rhythmic complexity.
- Avery Dennison printed 30 million stamps using the gravure process.
