On May 19, 2008, in Washington, DC, the Postal Service issued a 62-cent definitive stamp, Dragonfly, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive pane of twenty stamps. Carl T. Herrman of Carlsbad, California, designed the stamp.
The issuance features the dragonfly, one of the oldest insects in the world. The highly stylized illustration of a dragonfly with leaves in the background is by Nancy Stahl of New York, New York.
A total of 30 million stamps were printed in the offset process with microprinting "USPS" by Sennett Security Products/Banknote Corporation of America, Inc. (SSP/BCA), Browns Summit, North Carolina.
