In collaboration with the Faeroese post, Posta, POST Greenland issues a new stamp today the 23rd September. The theme for the stamp is Nordafar A/S, which was the basis for the fantastic fishing adventure that Nordafar in Færingehavn was for Greenlnad, Norway, Denmark and the Faeroese Islands.Norwegian Martin Mörck has created this evocative stamp issue, which is also issued in a joint Faeroese-Greenlandic Souvenir folder.
TELE-POST for the second time introduces an app, which can give stamp collectors an unusual experience through a samrtphone or tablet like an iPad.
-The first time we used this technology was with the stamp G510 ”Vulnerable Animal species” on 11th June 2013 in collaboration with Israel Post and our customers have received the new possibility well, says Philatelic manager Pertti Frandsen.
The new stamp ”comes to life” with a computer generated layer ”Augmented Reality” through the app “Sepac Stamps”.
