Overview

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.

The stamps represent a range of subjects and styles suitable for different purposes and age groups. All are intended to send heartfelt messages and each can be adapted as Personalised Stamps™, where you upload a photo for use in the stamp tab.

Stamp designers on this issue are: Beth McKinlay (gold rings, sparkler); Jo Muré, Australia Post Design Studio (bouquet, cake, teddy, balloons, white rose); and Gary Domoney, Visua (love bird).
