World\’s First Stamp Using Holographic Foil Printing Technique

Singapore pioneered in launching the world\’s first beaded stamp in the year. Subsequently, in 2009, Singapore again issued the world\’s first embroidered applique stamp.

And now the Singapore post ( SingPost ) introduces an innovative stamp design using the holographic foil printing technique.\"\"SingPost releases stamps on Singapore festivals every two years. Beautifully illustrated with traditional motifs and symbols, this set of eight festival stamps celebrates the four most important festivals in Singapore – Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Deepavali and Christmas.

Featured with the holographic foil technique, the Special Collectors\’ Sheet and the 55c stamp have a two-dimensional effect. As the angle of view changes, the shimmering, prismatic effect creates a spectrum of changing colours exemplifying the diverse mix of cultures in Singapore.
