Description
The brand new postage concept, "My Own Stamp", elicited enthusiastic response and keen attention when its demonstration version made its debut during the 2000 Korea Postage Stamp Exhibition. Now fully materialized, this stamp concept has made itself readily available to willing customers.

My Own Stamp is a postage stamp made on demand by printing either the customer's picture or a corporation's logo next to a regular postage stamp. The procedure comprises two steps: printing a regular postage stamp leaving an adjacent and same-size space empty, and subsequently incorporating either a customer photo or a corporate logo in the earmaked space. On-the-spot photo-taking of customers is available, with the use of digital cameras. Customers can also choose to mail in their ready-to-use photos.

This round of issuing of "My Own Stamp", the first ever of its kind in Korea, offers four different designs: 'love', 'gratitude', 'congratulations' and 'birthday'. Orders for 'love' and 'gratitude' stamps can be placed in post offices throughout the country starting from April 30. 'Congratulations' and 'birthday' stamps are scheduled to be released on June 1st and July 2nd respectively. My Own Stamp is to be mailed to the customer. On-the-spot photo taking is available either at the Seoul Central Post Office ,in large-scale, stamp-related events held in Korea, including the World Postage Stamp Exhibition. The price of a full sheet, which comprises 20 stamps printed together with either 20 customer photos, or 20 corporate logos, is 7,000 Korean won. Stamps with empty spaces for later incorporation of photos or advertisements are not available. The printed photos or logos can be considered as tokens of having paid postal charges insofar as they are used in tandem with regular stamps bearing the specific amount of postal charges.

Have your "My Own Stamp" custom-made for you, and keep people you care about posted.
