MacDailyNews Take: Jobs’ stamp is currently “In Design Development.” Before they get too far along in the process, we hereby nominate the following image:

Steve Jobs US Postal Stamp


  1. And if Jobs were alive to approve the design it’d take 2 years, go through 348 versions, require an all new printing process to produce and cost three times the price of every other stamp. But it’d be perfect.

    1. Licking a stamp, like dialing a telephone, is an anachronistic expression from the past century. And stamps can be, and have been, die cut in non-rectangular shapes, but that just wastes paper stock for novelty’s sake. Flavoured stamp gum had been tried but failed the taste test.

    1. as an aside, great interview with a younger Jobs (circa 1995) currently on Netflix entitled “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview.” Uncanny how he so accurately predicted the future of computing and brutally assesses his own mistakes at . Really interesting.

  2. I hope they use a photo from when he was young and outrageously handsome and not always the photos from the years just before he died, all thin, etc. thats now how I want to remember him..
