About Stamp

The highly successful and popular Greeting Stamps booklet, introduced on April 28, 2000, has been renewed for 2001. Changes have been made to both the frame and the greeting stickers, rendering this unique form of postage more flexible for users.

The original (2000) version of Greeting Stamps included only the gold leaf frame, which is still available in the 2001 version. An additional four styles have now been added: silver, mahogany, love, and Christmas. Users can now choose from all five styles. Whereas the original frame had the word "Canada" printed horizontally along the bottom, the word now appears vertically, as well, running up the side of the frame. This new format accommodates horizontal and vertical stickers, and allows users to affix the frame either way on the envelope. The new frame also bears the new denomination ($0.47).

In addition to the revised frames, Canada Post has added the holly sticker design to its original four. Users can now choose from five sticker themes: thank you, maple leaf, pen, heart, and a new theme, holly. All five stickers can be mixed and matched with the five frame styles to create a wide variety of customized postage. And as always, you can create your own unique and personalized stamps using Picture Postage.TM Simply fill out the application on the inside flap of the Greeting Stamps booklet and send it in, along with your favourite horizontal or vertical photo, and you'll receive 25 Picture PostageTM photo stickers, frames and return address labels.
