Hongkong Post today (January 31) announced that the "Heartwarming Stamps Mini-pane with Fragrance" will be released for sale together with associated philatelic products on February 14.
Valentine's Day on February 14 is a traditional festival in the West, during which lovers, families and friends give presents to each other to express their affection. To mark Valentine's Day this year, Hongkong Post will release the specially designed "Heartwarming Stamps Mini-pane with Fragrance". Using the same "Love and Care" design of the second series of "Heartwarming Stamps" of 2006, this issue features a refreshing layout and stamp tabs with endearing images. The colourful heart-shaped graphics on the stamps are delicately blended with a hint of passion to convey tender love and heartfelt wishes. For the first time, Hongkong Post has infused the "Heartwarming Stamps" mini-panes with the fragrance of roses to help fill this Valentine's Day with romance and sweetness.
Official souvenir covers were put on sale for $1 each at all post offices today. The mini-pane and associated philatelic products are on display at the General Post Office, Tsim Sha Tsui Post Office, Tsuen Wan Post Office and Sha Tin Central Post Office. Advance orders for servicing self-provided covers are being accepted at all philatelic offices until February 6. Further information can be obtained from the website of Hongkong Post at www.hongkongpost.com.
Starting from February 6, orders for the Heartwarming Stamps Mini-pane with Fragrance Customised Service will be accepted via the Hongkong Post Stamps website at www.hongkongpoststamps.com and the Philatelic Bureau. Further information can be obtained from the Hongkong Post Stamps website.
