Since 2014 Chunghwa Post has used a series of stickers with the postal carriers whose delightful and consoling features are greatly appreciated by the public. In 2024, stickers with the Postal Characters will be ten years old. Chunghwa Post has offered a special set of four stamps with face values of NT$8, NT$12, NT$15 and NT$28. So as to facilitate customers' use, two self-adhesive stamps with the denominations of NT$8 and NT$28 respectively have been issued.
Both male and female postal carriers are smart yet delightful. The four stamps depict four themes: festival greeting, sending mail, the mailbox and the mailtruck. The Postal Characters tell us that the customer comes first and that service should be reliable and prompt. Their positive and lively poses ensure that Chunghwa Post draws ever closer to the lives of the people.
