New stamps

The Cayman Islands Postal Service has released a new stamp issue called Greetings, which is aimed primarily at making certain occasions distinctive.

Greetings will be a wonderful way to celebrate special occasions such as an engagement, a wedding or the birth of a baby, to send greetings to friends and loved ones, and to provide Cayman Islands overseas guests with a memento of their stay. The six stamps carry the greetings Love, Hello, Best Wishes, Congratulations, Good Luck and You’re Invited.

The stamps will be sold in sheets of 20-cents, 25-cents, 50-cents, 75-cents, 80-cents, and $1, meaning all the images will be represented on a sheet. CIPS has also ordered four self-adhesive booklets. One features Hello, at the postcard rate of 20-cents, and the other three are at the local rate of 25-cents, Congratulations, Love and You’re Invited.
