To provide its customers with more options of personal stamps, Chunghwa Post is issuing another set of ten stamps, each containing a common Chinese auspicious phrase associated with a number from one to ten. Each of the designs will be printed in two denominations: NT$3.50 and NT$5.00. The designs follow:
1. A Singularly Harmonious Vibe: This expression describes the harmonious atmosphere radiated from amiable persons.
2. Double Happiness: This expression suggests one joyful event after another.
3. Blessings from the Three Stars: This expression conveys the good wishes of having lots of offspring, climbing up the career ladder and becoming wealthy, as well as having limitless good luck.
4. Four is for Everything Goes as One Wishes: This expression is the Chinese people’s favorite phrase for offering good tidings.
5. Bumper Crops of All Five Grains: This expression is used to describe the joy when a good harvest brings people plenty to eat. Today, it offers best wishes in one’s business endeavors.
6. Spring in All Six Directions: This expression conveys the idea that everything is thriving.
7. Seven is for A Match Made in Heaven: This expression offers best wishes for a match made in heaven.
8. The Eight Immortals Wish for Your Longevity: This expression has become a stock phrase at birthday parties.
9. Nine Similes and Three Abundances: This expression is a way of praying that everything goes well in one’s life, family, and career.
10. Ten Complete: The expression conveys a prayer for perfection in life and achieving one’s every goal.

The non-personalized stamps sold in post office branches are printed in a format of 20 stamps per sheet, while the personalized ones are printed in different formats: two vertical-sheet layouts with marginal inscription and two without, and one business card layout without marginal inscriptions. The formats of the stamps follow:
1. Vertical-sheet layouts with marginal inscription: The stamps are printed in two columns (in either NT$3.50 or NT$5.00 denominations) with tags in between for printing a photo image provided by the customer.  
2. Vertical-sheet layouts without marginal inscription: The layouts of these sheets are the same as the ones with marginal inscription, except that their tags are not perforated. More spaces are reserved for the customers’ own designs.
3. Business card layout without marginal inscription: The sheet is comprised of six stamps—one each from the NT$3.50 denominated stamps. The name of the stamp is printed in the right margin. Each sheet (A4 size) can be cut into six smaller sheets (96 mm × 95 mm).
(1) First Day Cover in large size: NT$3.00 apiece.
(2) Folder: NT$8.00 apiece.
(3) Folder with mount: NT$8.00 apiece.
(4) Loose-leaf album page: NT$16.00 apiece.
