Personal Stamp Issue

Personalised stamp

Norway
Since 2006, amateur photographers in Norway have created thousands of stamp subjects and have delighted hundreds of thousands of recipients of letters and cards. For its official issues of Personalised stamps, Norway Post chooses different standard subjects and this time it is the turn of Peonies. Peonies are said to be one of the most beautiful perennials you can plant in your garden. The most common colours are pink, red and white, sometimes passing into pale red, purple and creamy white. Peonies are not difficult to grow if you look after them properly from the start. Choose your planting place with care. Peonies thrive in full sun and fertile soil. They will then grow to the height of about 60 cm and flower every year - for many, many years.

Among the photos that are sent into Norway Post to be transformed into stamps, there are also many photos of flowers. It is not as easy as you might think to take good photos of flowers, yet there are many first-class flower photos that, in a perforated frame, make an attractive, useful adornment on letters and postcards.

Since their introduction in the late 1990s, Personalised stamps have become popular all over the world. Initially, they were only perforated labels with no value or country name. Later they were upgraded to stamps. It is not only private individuals who compose their own stamps. Norway Post
