The first ever France Valentine day "designer hearts" postage stamps were issued in 2000. The stamps, designed by the Yves Saint-Laurent couture house, represent 2 facing snakes and a face. These valentine stamps were also available in a booklet of 10 adhesive stamps and a souvenir sheet.

Christian Lacroix Valentine designer hearts postage stamps

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.

Torrente's Valentine designer hearts postage stamps

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.

2004 is a vintage year for the France fashion designer hearts postage stamps! Karl Lagerfeld agreed to create the design for the 2 Chanel stamps. The 0.50c value represents a bottle of Chanel n.5 and the 0.70c value has a supermodel in front of the Eiffel tower. Both designs are also available in self-adhesive stamps. The mini-sheet of 5 stamps is an intricate design of bows and necklaces.

A disappointing 2007 Valentine stamps issue by Givenchy. I was expecting something more original than just their logo and a wreath plastered on the stamps and souvenir sheet.

Issued on January 10th 2010! This year, the valentine postage stamps are customizable! You can color them, or write on them (I *heart* squidoo!) Check these out:

2013 Valentine Stamps By Hermes

Hermes stamp 0.58

Hermes stamp 0.97

Hermes stamps souvenir sheet


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).

      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.

      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.
