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.

Additionally, the aforementioned Fortune stamp will be laid out in a manner equivalent to the Taegeukgi, Bible, and Lotus Flower stamps, but will feature some changes in its composition of the full sheet. In other words, one more stamp as well as one more photo of the customer will be placed at the center of the full sheet with the PR image serving as the backdrop, offering a total of 15 stamps and 15 photos of the customer.

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.
