Annual flower issue a perennial favourite with gardeners and soon-to-be-weds
OTTAWA, March 1, 2018 /CNW/ - Canada Post will once again bring some colour and freshness into the lives (and mail) of winter-weary Canadians with its annual flower stamp issue. This year, the focus is on aquatic blooms, with the domestic-rate PermanentTM stamps featuring two varieties of lotus:
Because this issue is so popular for wedding invitations and stationery, the stamps are available in booklets of 10, with five of each design, or coils of 50 offering 25 of each design. A two-stamp souvenir sheet is available for collectors, along with strips of four and 10 stamps from the coil. An Official First Day Cover featuring both stamps is cancelled in Waterdown, Ontario. The stamps were designed by Parcel Design of Toronto based on watercolours by Eunike Nugroho and printed by the Lowe-Martin Group.
