New Greeting stamps from Ireland



Date of Issue : 30 January 2014

Every year, An Post issues vibrant and cheerful Greetings stamps which are designed to reflect the rich tradition of Irish hospitality and friendliness.


The Greetings First Day Cover features the aliens and robots collecting post and parcels from a spaceship with a colourful and friendly backdrop.

Greeting stamps are also intended to convey the warm good wishes of the sender when used with a card or envelope on practically every kind of celebratory occasion. In particular, they add a sense of fun and an extra touch of merriment to envelopes containing greeting cards.


This year’s Greetings stamps are based on illustrations by Phil Elliott, a multi-award winning Irish designer and illustrator and a member of the Irish Guild of Illustrators (Illustrators Ireland).

Phil’s designs for these stamps are centered around a more youthful celebration of occasions that warrant greetings by featuring vibrant, colorful, joyful images of robots and an alien.
