Latvijas Pasts brings back personalized stamps by releasing a series of stamps dedicated to museums.
The series includes three stamps dedicated to the museums of medicine situated in Riga. The three stamps highlight the historical significance of Riga as the European Capital of Culture 2014. Pauls Stradins Museum for History of Medicine is not only one of the most visited museums in Riga, but also one of the three largest museums of this field in the world. The stamps in the new series are also dedicated to the branches of the said museum: the Museum of Pharmacy and Jekabs Primanis Museum of Anatomy.
Anyone interested in creating a personalized stamp of their own design may want to check out this interesting service offered by Latvijas Pasts. Depending on the denomination of the stamp, it will be suitable for mailing letters both within Latvia and to other countries of the world.
The renewed service for personalized stamp designs will incorporate new identification and security marks to be used from March 3, 2014. The marks, printed with a special color, will change depending on the lighting and provide a better protection against counterfeiting. The clients using the relaunched service will receive their personalized stamps within five working days of placing the order instead of two to four weeks, as was the case with the old service.
