Moments to Treasure

Release date: 5 February 2019

In an increasingly digital age, sending a hand-written greeting or invitation through the post helps to make it extra special. The Special Occasions stamp series provides versatile designs to use in a variety of contexts. This latest issue in the series caters for a range of moments to treasure – from weddings, birthdays and graduations to St Valentine’s Day, the birth of a new baby and general well-wishes. These versatile designs also cater for more sombre moments, such as the sending of condolences or wishes for a speedy recovery from illness.
