Personalised Stamps 2014

New Zealand Post is excited to present a new range of Personalised Stamps – to add to your collection and give your mail a personal touch.

Issue information

This vibrant range of Personalised Stamps has been issued to reflect the upcoming changes to postage rates. It allows you to give your mail that special touch by featuring your favourite photo or image alongside one of the gorgeous stamp designs.

These Personalised Stamps are the perfect way to spread the good news about a wedding, an engagement, a new baby or a new pet. Use them on your Christmas cards, invitations or anything else you like! Alternatively, a sheet of 20 Personalised Stamps makes a great gift or a keepsake for yourself to remember a special event or occasion.

Plus they make excellent collectables. These stamps are available as a set of two sheetlets (one incorporating eight x 80c stamps and the other incorporating two x $2.00 and two x $2.50 stamps). A set of two sheetlet first day covers is also available as part of this collectable issue.

Please note: The sheetlets and the sheetlet first day covers cannot be personalised. These products are only available as stamp products. If you're wanting to create your own Personalised Stamps, please click here.
