South Africa’s World Post Day celebrated by unusual stamp issue

November 17th, 2014

According to info received by South Africa Post celebrated the World Post Day with a special stamp issue that honors people who work in this sphere. South Africa’s World Post Day stamp issue comprises a self-adhesive stamp sheet with five stamps and one commemorative envelope.

A special feature to add some value and to express the message of the people behind the scenes in a novel way, is a fun design added to the stamp sheet. The stamp release was put into circulation on the 9th of October.

It features a small box-shaped parcel from a die-cut design, which can be folded into a small box. One side of the stamp sheet shows the stamps illustrated with hands performing various tasks, while the other side looks like a small parcel. When folded, the stamps seem to be hidden inside the box.
