MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Fans waited in line at 12:00 a.m. Wednesday to receive the first copies of the Elvis Presley Forever Stamp.

Around 800 people took to Graceland to pocket the U.S. Postal Service's newest Forever Stamp.

Deborah Hamilton drove 20 hours from Canada to present flowers at the ceremony.  She was in Memphis for the presentation of the first Presley stamp in 1993.

The Postmaster said thousands of the stamps have already been sold, but there are plenty to go around.

Elvis' widow Priscilla Presley was on hand later Wednesday morning for a special ceremony to commemorate the first issued stamp.

"The stamp is so well thought out," said Priscilla Presley. "It's so beautiful."

Officials also released new arrangement of Elvis's song "If I Can Dream" Wednesday. For the first time, an orchestra accompanied the vocals. Those close to Elvis said he always wanted fans to hear the song performed with an orchestral accompaniment.
