Description
With the adjustment in postal service fees effective as of November 1, 2004, the Korea Post will issue new versions of "My Own Stamp."

The newly-issued My Own Stamp offers a variety of choices not only in the design of the postage stamp but also in the full sheet used in the stamps.

The full sheet for the Taegeukgi (National Flag of Korea), Fortune, and Crape Myrtle stamps will offer 20 stamps, respectively, as in the past as well as 20 pictures or images from which customers can freely choose according to their tastes.

As for the Taegeukgi, Bible, and Lotus Flower stamps, 14 stamps and 14 photos of the customer will be offered as well as a PR image of the customer's choice at the center of the full sheet, providing a unique composition.

The newly-designed My Own Stamp offers customers a variety of choices from the Bible and the Lotus Flower stamps each depicting Christianity and Buddhism; to Animal Friends: Teddy Bear, Baby Dinosaur, and Letter Envelope stamps, which are endearing and amusingly designed to appeal to the younger generation.
