Description
With the adjustment in the postal rates effective as of January 15, 2002, new stamps will be issued as follows: 280-won stamps for priority mail (under 25g), 310-won stamps for priority mail (under 50g), 1,380-won stamps for registered priority mail (under 25g) and 1,410-won stamps for registered priority mail (under 50g).

The Priority Mail Service, launched in October 1 of 1994, is designed to meet the demand of users requiring prompt delivery of mail. Unlike non-priority mail that is delivered within four days of mailing, the priority mail is delivered the day after.

The four types of newly unveiled stamps for priority mail feature "vehicles (airplanes, trains, trucks)". Changes were made in the background color of the stamps to distinguish its purpose of use. Of the definitive postage stamp for priority mail, the 280-won stamps are yellow while the 310-won stamps are blue. As to registered priority mail postage, the 1,380-won definitives are green and 1,410-won definitives are red.
