Pos Malaysia setem ku

Wednesday, April 27, 2011


This news make me envy stamp collector more. I wish BNM will be more creative and do something like this or at least launch a commemorative coins in a monthly basis. We don't know what coins BNM will be producing and when? Most of the time, the news come out at official BNM website, one day before the official launch of the coins and most of the gold coins already sold to all "BNM friends". We the common people will only get to share what were left by them, if any.

In Star Newspaper today, Pos Malaysia announced their new personalized Stamp. Individuals and organisations wishing to commemorate a special occasion may customise a photo of their choice on these stamps, using four base designs in the 35 sen and 65 sen denominations. The Pos Malaysia setem ku customisation service costs RM20 per sheet of eight stamps, which has a postage value of RM4. It is available on request at the General Post Office stamp gallery.

Pos Malaysia head of stamps and philately unit Yasmin Ramli said customers could collect their personalised stamps the same day they made their order.

“They just have to provide a digital photo of their choice to complete the personalised stamps order. It can be done within the same day except for bulk orders which requires a minimum 200 sheets,” she said.

To commemorate the launch of the personalised stamps dubbed SetemKu, Yasmin said a pre-printed first day issue and first day cover would be sold at all post offices nationwide today. The first day cover will bear the hotstamp of the four base designs which feature a theme on silver handicraft. The designs were done in collaboration with Pictureworks (M) Sdn Bhd and Kraftangan Malaysia.

“In addition to customising the stamp space available, there is also a space on the stamp sheet for customised greetings and personal messages.

“So you can actually send out a custom-made greeting stamp to wish your family, friends or business associates during festive seasons,” said Yasmin.
