Christmas 2017
stamp design for the Hungarian Post

It is not a secret that I am an avid fan of stamp design, so I was the happiest when I got the request to design the Christmas stamp for the Hungarian Post. Drawing flourishes is one of my other favorite activities, so I felt this will be the perfect occasion to combine these two. I like the way the flourishes can represent the festive atmosphere.
The stamp is released in standard and special editions. The standard edition sheet consists of 50 stamps, while the special edition is a miniature sheet of five stamps embellished with gold foil. A special feature of the sheets of 50 stamps is the pictorial elements along the edges, the specially illustrated bar code and the seasonal inscriptions, some of which also appear in the border of the miniature sheet. Similarly to last year, the postage stamp for sending good wishes is self-adhesive and has no value indication, bearing the inscription 'Domestic'. Available to order at the Hungarian Post.
This year I designed the Christmas postmarks for the Hungarian Post as well. This means, you can send your greetings to your beloved with four special postmarks during the Advent period. This service is available at any Hungarian Post Office.
