It’s been three years since USPS released the Eames commemorative stamps we loved so much. But we design nerds can rejoice once more — in May 2011 the US postal service will release a Pioneers of American Industrial Design stamp set.

The stamps feature an iconic piece by each designer, including Fiestaware Disk pitchers by Frederick Hurten Rhead and a Model 500 desk phone by Henry Dreyfuss. They’ll look chic on mail, but they’ll also look great framed and set on a desk. Read more about the stamp series or order them in May from
