AUGUSTA — Maine’s 2012 duck stamp is going on sale for stamp collectors.

This year’s edition of the stamp is now available from the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

The 2012 stamp was designed by Janine Folsom, of Skowhegan, whose painting of a pair of ring-necked ducks was selected from contest entries submitted by Maine artists.

The stamps, which sell for $7.50 each or $10 for a signed one, are for collection purposes only. Proceeds from stamp sales are used by the department for waterfowl habitat acquisition and management.

The stamps can be ordered in person or by mail from the department.
