Australia Post Personalised Stamps ™ allow you to create your own special finishing touch to your invitations, thank you cards and, of course, Christmas greetings!

Personalised stamps comprise a stamp design, together with a stamp tab. The stamp tab houses your own photo*. Why not create a fun family portrait in matching Christmas jumpers, this year? The stamp and the stamp tab are then applied to your envelope.

Our Christmas 2018 stamp issue, which will be released on 1 November 2018, will be the latest additions to the Personalised Stamps range, providing both traditional and secular designs to choose from.

Traditional Christmas designs

This year’s two traditional Christmas stamps comprise a domestic Christmas card rate stamp (65c Madonna and Child) as well as an international rate stamp ($2.30 Musical Angels). The traditional Christmas stamps are based on paintings by Ursula Betka, created using age-old medieval techniques and featuring beautiful jewel-like and golden colours.

Secular Christmas designs

For those looking for a light-hearted festive touch to their envelopes, there are three secular designs by Luke Lucas. The three typographical stamps feature festive words taken from popular Christmas carols “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, “Jingle Bells” and “The First Noël". The swirling ribbons that form the letters evoke the act of gift-giving. There are domestic Christmas card rate (65c) Glad Tidings and Jingle Bells designs, as well as an international Christmas card rate ($2) Noël design.
