Who decides the designs on the stamp?
For a long time the Postmaster General decided what should go on stamps. However, when Congress began passing legislation requiring certain subjects be honored, in 1957 the Postmaster General created a committee to review the ideas of the entire public. The committee includes stamp collectors as well as government officials.
