On September 8, 2008, in Washington, DC, the Postal Service issued a 42-cent Latin Jazz commemorative stamp in a pressure-sensitive adhesive pane of twenty stamps. Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, Arizona, designed the stamp.

With the issuance of the Latin Jazz stamp, the United States Postal Service celebrated the rich musical heritage of the United States of America. The stamp features a bold graphic design by San Francisco-based artist and Latin jazz fan Michael Bartalos. The design conveys the multicultural aspects of the music, its percussive and improvisational nature, and its rhythmic complexity.

Avery Dennison printed 30 million stamps using the gravure process.
