The Guess Who stamp goes on sale Friday.

This spring during the 2013 Juno awards, Canada Post announced it would honour rock icons across the country with stamps of their own, including the Guess Who.

The Canadian Recording Artists series includes stamps in honour of many of the country’s headliners, including Rush, The Tragically Hip and Beau Dommage, a francophone group from Quebec that’s been compared to the Beatles.

"This year’s series features Canadian bands that have shaped the music industry in Canada," said Jim Philips, the stamp services director for Canada Post.

The series was announced in April, when the Junos, the country’s top music awards were presented but there were not ready to go on sale until this summer. They are available at Canada Post outlets coast to coast Friday.
