    According to The Washington Post, the United States Postal Service has approved a commemorative Steve Jobs stamp that will be printed next year and will be released at some point in 2015. The Washington Post has also revealed other future postage-stamp subjects for the coming years, such as Johnny Carson, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Harvey Milk, Wilt Chamberlain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon and others.

    The late Apple co-founder passed away in 2011 after losing the battle with pancreatic cancer. He has been posthumously honored with a special Grammy Merit Award, a Disney Legends Award and has been inducted into the Bay Area Business Hall of Fame, among other awards. With these future postage stamps, the United States Postal Service hopes to build revenue from younger collectors, as it faces some financial hurdles.

    Susan McGowan, the Postal Service’s executive director for stamp services and corporate licensing said that the new focus on pop-culture was a decision “we hope will bring new eyeballs†and that it is meant to “keep the American public engaged.†She also added:

    If you are still using snail mail, would you be interested in buying a postage stamp with Steve Jobs? Do you think this is a good strategy to attract the younger generation to traditional communication methods?
