About Stamp

In recognition of today's consumers' search for products saving time and effort, Canada Post Corporation is issuing new stamp packs of 12 pressure sensitive or self-adhesive definitive stamps featuring the Canadian Flag. The stamps need only to be peeled from their backing and affixed to an envelope, offering an alternative to traditional gummed stamps. Designed by the Toronto design firm Gottschalk + Ash International, the Canadian flat stamp is a composite of two separate photographs: one of the flag; the other of a Canadian forest. An electronic merging of the photographs during the colour separation process created the combined image seen on the stamp.
