Special  Stamps Issuance

Whenever we want to congratulate somebody, greeting cards are probably the first things that come to mind, since they are easy to buy and send. In their simplicity, greeting cards have the capacity to express out attentions or even feelings to the receiver. 

In Indonesia, where life is full of brotherhood values and religious atmosphere, there are many occasions when people show attention and share joy and happiness with each other. Holidays, end of years, and great moments in somebody's life are good times to deliver reetings. Greeting cards can create friendships or tighten the bonds of relationship-things that Indonesians always highly value. Cards can also help sharing happiness. This is important because happiness means more when we can share it with the people we love.

To highlight and emphasize the messages of greeting cards, the Greeting Stamps Series might be useful. They are issued at different times for different occasions, namely: "Selamat Hari Raya" or "Happy Holidays" (issued 1 February 1996), "Selamat dan Sukses" or "Conglatulations and Best Wishes" (15 April 1996) and "Selamat Tahun baru" or "Happy New Year" (15 October 1996). Along with the stamps, three first day covers are also released.
