Now your Face also on Stamps !!

Department of Post to launch Customized stamps. Next time when you post an envelop, you can have a portrait of yours struck on the place of stamp !!. 

This is a new scheme named as "My Stamp"  which will be introduced in the World Philatelic Exhibition - Indipex 2011 to be held at New Delhi next week. 
The stamp will have two parts-the currency part and the photograph-detachable from each other. If the experiment with individual consumers is successful, Indian companies may also be allowed to carry their own logos and postage stationery in future, the spokeswoman added.

Thus Infosys, Wipro or Reliance may have its logo embedded in postage stationery, which can be personalised when a company achieves a certain milestone, as well. These milestones can be a large deal, a new CEO, an international listing or a big acquisition, which the company would like to be highlighted to its key audience.

For now, personalised postage is allowed only for individual citizens. One can also bring one's own or spouse's photo with an ID card, to have it converted into a personalised stamp.

  9. It is a wonderful scheme. I have come to know that it is applicable only to individuals who are alive. But it should also be applicable to all those who are no more and their loved ones wish to honor them by issuing stamps in their memory. Like, I wish to honor my Late Grand Father Dr. B. Sahai, M.A, M.Com, Ph.D, D.Litt, Formerly Dean of Commerce, Agra University and Professor Emeritus on his 100th Birth Anniversary which falls in July 2012. The Lucknow Philately Bureau has denied me this opportunity citing rules & regulations. I think they should give me this opportunity to honor my Grand Father in this Nobel way.
