|Picture Postage Stamps
Updated: August 20, 2011
Personalized postage stamps were introduced to Canadian consumers on April 28th, 2000. The new product, called Picture Postage, was made available through Canada Post retail outlets. These stamps replaced the previous "winged" customizable Greetings stamps, on sale between 1994 and 2000.
Various frame designs have been used, and two different methods for applying the centre image.
