I was able to order the new Love No-die-cut press sheet online from the USPS.
It was shipped today.

The Philatelic Catalog and Customer Service both indicate that there will be no advance ordering of the no-die-cut press sheets.

The No-Die-Cut book is still available at Amazon.

JillA: Do you plan to update your catalogue once sufficient new NDC stamps have been issued?

My Dad has some press sheets. They come in tubes and stay that way. Anyone seen a press sheet album? 8-)

No, but the large portfolios for artists might work.

I use a paper file, but this would impractical for most people, unless they collect maps or large documents.

I doubt the USPS packing for press sheets is archival, and that it may become impossible to flatten the sheets if rolled for too long. I would definitely find a way store the sheets flat.

Received the 1st quarter issue of the USA Philatelic today. Besides the Love stamp, there are three other issues that have no-die-cut press sheets: August Wilson (6 panes), Chien-Shiung Wu (6 panes) and Year of the Ox (4 panes). It does appear that only commemoratives will have NDC press sheets.

I note that the first of the new wave of imperf press sheets, the love stamp, is marked on the USPS site as not available. This would be a fairly quick sellout of the first press sheet since 2015.

It looks like the AUGUST WILSON press sheet without die cuts has been removed from the USPS site. It was only listed for about 2 days. I wonder how many of these new IMPERF press sheets they are printing since the first 2 sold out so fast?

I had a confirmed order for LUNAR NEW YEAR press sheets without die cuts. I received an email from USPS confirming this. When I checked status of my orders the LUNAR NEW YEAR was changed in the description from WITHOUT to WITH die cuts! I thought that maybe I made a mistake in ordering, but no, this was changed a couple of days after ordering, and again I received a CONFIRMATION of my NO DIE CUTS order.

It seems to me that this similar situation happened back in 2015 when I had confirmed orders for the last of the series of NO DIE CUTS when the PO cancelled my already confirmed order. I was so annoyed I didn't order anything from USPS until the new LOVE without die cuts, which I already received.

Anyone else having similar problems with the NEW NO DIE CUTS PRESS SHEETS?

I have received my orders for the four new no die-cut
press sheets without any problems. For storage, I cut
the press sheets into the individual panes and use
archival quality one pocket pages.

I'm still looking for any news about future no die-cut
press sheets. Nothing has been said about Garden Beauty
(Feb 23), Colorado Hairstreak Butterfly (March 9), or
Espresso Drinks (April 9).

I agree with you that it is strange there is no or almost no news about these in Linn's or other stamp media I've seen. Also strange that still nothing in the postal bulletin about these and print quantities. Anyone who got the fourth sheet Chien-Shuing Wu sheet imperf is pretty lucky. I was checking the usps on line site and I never even saw it come up for sale.

The latest Linn's does have an article about the NDC press sheets. The Wu sheet apparently was sold out before it could appear on the USPS web site. Have heard that prices on the secondary market for the Wu sheet are running from 4 to 8 times face value.
