Overview

These 10 vibrant stamps, the latest in our Special Occasions series, seek to bring joy and delight to the recipient of cards or letters, which is especially important in an era of email and text.

These versatile designs can be used for a range of occasions and heartfelt greetings, including weddings and engagements, special birthdays including the arrival of a new baby, graduations, Saint Valentine’s Day, or just for general celebration. Two stamps are designed for more corporate use, both showing the Southern Cross, with one also featuring the kangaroo paw, the other the map of Australia. The $2.20 Ring design is perfect for over-sized invitations or thank-you cards.
