On 28 January 2014, UNPA issued a "Greetings from New York" personalized stamp sheet. The sheet is composed of ten US$ 1.15 denominated stamps which feature various images from United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The sheet was designed by Rorie Katz (United Nations). The back ground of the sheet shows an image of the newly renovated Trusteeship Council Chamber taken in April 2013 (UN Photo/Rick Bajomas).
