Personal Stamps 2


At WIPA in 2008 Austria Post created a new type of instant personal stamps where a person could have their photograph taken or provide a design which was then printed on a sheet of 20 self-adhesive stamps - it was possible to have more than one sheet printed. This 'blue ox' option for obtaining personal stamps is still found at some philatelic events and was quite popular at Numiphil in December last year.

"Marken Heft" is an 4.6 booklet usually with three stamps at a cost of around ?5.00

"Marken Edition" are enclosed in a folder which will contain 1, 8 or 20 stamps at a cost of ?2.10, C9.90 and ?19.90 respectively. Some of these contain stamps of more than one value and can be self-adhesive.
