Non-denominated Postage Stamps (Continued)

To better adjust to changes in postal rates and to bring greater convenience to the stamp-using public, Chunghwa Post first released non-denominated stamps on July 20, 1991. In that tradition, on August 1, 2017 it will release a set of two non-denominated stamps, one to cover basic domestic postage for printed matter and the other to cover basic domestic postage for ordinary letters.
The two stamps both feature a white carrier dove, which is symbolic of mail conveyance. In one, the bird holds an item of printed matter in its beak against a warm yellow background, and in the other the bird’s beak holds a letter against a bright blue background. Doves symbolize peace and integrity, and convey an image of friendly and trustworthy postal administration. The bright color scheme represents a government postal service that carries out its duties with enthusiasm, safely delivering every piece of mail to its recipient.
The stamps are designed by Up Creative Design and Advertising Corporation and printed by China Color Printing Co., Ltd. in color offset. By-issues including a first-day cover, folders with and without crystal mounts, and a loose-leaf album page will be released along with the stamps and will go on sale on July 28, 2017. A pre-canceled FDC with a single stamp to cover basic domestic postage for printed matter or the full set of stamps will go on sale on August 1, 2017, the stamps’ date of issuance.
